Rather than gripe about another yet Parliament collection, I'll stick to the merits of this CD, which are considerable. With more tracks than any previous Parliament compilation (except the two-CD anthology) and featuring crisp, booming remastered sound, this is both the place to start for beginners and a welcome place to revisit for the coverted. Get funked!

It doesn't get any better than this. This album has The Best of Parliament - Give Up The Funk beat! And really only because of sound quality. The selections are almost virtually the same. Now I know everyone has their opinion of why people buy Best of's and that it usually only to 'get into the band', I think of them as a nice album on their own. Always check out the original albums the songs came from but this is a fantastic listen from beginning to end.

I have this and Gold. I sold both Give Up The Funk and Tear The Roof Off (1974 - 1980) because I upgraded but the original albums are great in their own right. I just prefer the remastered sound quality. And when you reach a level of quality that you're personally satisfied with, then stop right there. Even if that's the non-remastered versions. The point still comes across either way. We want the funk, gotta have that funk!

The music is fabulous. There is no doubt about this. If you like Funk, it is definitely a must. My only complaint is that the production / remastering quality is not good on all the tracks. I guess it depends on what the original master tape sounded like but some of the tracks (especially the ones where theres a lot of talking / rapping) are not as clear or stereo separated and dynamic as others. Others have a lot of dynamism with clear bass and treble highs as well as separation of channels. I am overall happy, but it could have been better in the production / mixing / remastering.

PARLIAMENT-FUNKED UP/THE VERY BEST OF PARLIAMENT: One of the most visible elements of funkateer GEORGE CLINTON's multi-faceted musical empire, PARLIAMENT, who started as vocal group THE PARLIAMENTS (scoring the 1967 RNB/pop hit I WANNA TESTIFY), combined loopy sci-fi themes, bizarre costumes and gonzo song material for their spaced out interplanetary party. In a freakazoid universe populated by loopy characters such as DR. FUNKENSTEIN and SIR NOSE (DEVOID OF FUNK), their eclectic musicianship was beyond reproach, spotlighting ex-JAMES BROWN bassist BOOSTY COLLINS, synth sorcerer BERNIE WORRELL, and guitar guru GARY SHIDER; many doubled up in CLINTON's even less conventional FUNKADELIC, who specialized in bloozey "acid funk". PARLIAMENT's trippy jams GIVE UP THE FUNK (TEAR THE ROOF OFF THE SUCKER), FLASH LIGHT and AQUA BOOGIE may be the best known efforts here...but the titillating early tracks UP FOR THE DOWN STROKE, CHOCOLATE CITY and ALL YOUR GOODIES ARE GONE are packed with just as much raw boned viscosity and irreverent humor.

RATING: FOUR MOTHER SHIPS

The songs have been edited to be a little shorter than the originals but it is a good collection of George Clinton and P-Funk's finestl from their library of hits one after the other. Make my funk a P!

Old school funk at it's best, those of you who are fans of the late 70's style of funk and George Clinton need to download this immediately.
