Product Description

The Best Of Parliament: Give Up The Funk by Parliament

This product is manufactured on demand using CD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.

Amazon.com

For legal reasons too complicated to dive into, George Clinton forged two bands, Parliament and Funkadelic, out of what had just been one. In loose terms, Parliament was thought to be the more commercially viable of his insane clown posses, so it's not surprising that most of the tracks on this essential package made it to the radio. And radio never had it so good, since Parliament's idea of Top 40 included timeless dance-floor manifestos like "Flashlight," "Bop Gun," and "Give Up the Funk." This collection is a party on a platter and then some. --Amy Linden

George Clinton was as much a pioneer as Jimi Hendrix and The Beatles. His psychodelia in music cannot be limited to just that era. The words to the songs are the mark of genius and the group gathered around him always puts in a superior performance. This is a timeless piece that should be in every funk fan's collection.

In my opinon this is the best compilation offered by Parliament. As a do or die funkateer of the group for close to 30 years this CD doesn't get any better.

The music on this, or any Parliament/Funkadelic CD, deserves five stars. As a compilation, however, I'm only giving it four stars. The liner notes and the number of songs is an improvement over the previous Parliament compilation (The Bomb/Greatest Hits). The order in which the songs are presented, however, isn't. The Bomb presented the songs in chronological order giving you a good feel for how Parliaments music progressed. This compilation, however, doesn't present the songs in a recognizable order. That takes away from the overall feel of the CD. It's still a great PFunk compilation but I recommend looking at The Bomb first. In my opinion, which one you decide to get after comparing the two is just a matter of personal taste.

This album includes all of Parliament's classic cuts. I might add that a majority of the songs still get heavy airplay on radio stations across the country.

this group was so funky.taking a bit of James,a little of Sly,a little of Jimi,a touch of Motown and the rest out of there future ristic minds.George clinton the master mind behind them had a vision to at least out funk every other group in extinct.this group has so many brillant minds like Bootsy collins,bernie worrell,michael hampton,and the horn section just to name some.when it comes to chocolate rocking soul this group could melt with down almost any group. and this disc shows the many talents and styles and more importantly the genius and prolifiration of one george clinton.make my funk the p-funk.

Great collection of funk, everytime I gotta get the groove, feel the funk, tear the roof off the sucka, or get a hold of a Mothership Connection I load up George Clinton and the gang, and get down. I couldn't live without this funk
