Editorial Reviews

Bootsy brought in some new blood for this 1980 album, rekindling his relationship with George Clinton and laying down some more monster grooves, particularly on 'Mug Push'.

Totally OUTSTANDING!! Somewhat of a different pace then his earlier albums. Had Warner Bros marketed this gem the way they should have, this would have been Bootsy's BEST selling album!! How could "F-Encounter" not make the top 40 on the R&B charts?? The hypnotic "Mug Push" what a great beggining and the funk gets stronger!! "It's A Musical" should have lit up the dance floors but my favorite "Sound Crack" sounded like new wave meets funk. This is most certainly my favorite cd from BOOTSY

The most underrated Bootsy album. Contains Bootsy's all time vocal performance on "F-Encounter". The novelty rock & roll jam "Is That My Song?". Represents Bootsy changing styles with the times and combining New Wave elements with good old psychedelicised P-Funk for the early 80s. Just check out "SoundCrack" with its monstrous mutron-pedaled Space Bass solo near the end of the track. Also Bootsy's wittiest slow jam ever, "Sacred Flower" and the pounding "It's a Musical". Record truly closes out Bootsy's peak commercial period with Warners.

bootsy lost the rights to the rubber band name since a country group of the same name sued him but then again the rubber band broke up anyway mudbone cooper's departure is missed and if you bought bootsy's first 4 albums you really miss him here he sure could have been used on a few cuts, also the horny horns presence is limited fred wesley, rick gardner and kush griffith left p funk too. but still bootsy carried on and the album features no appearances garry shider, bernie worrell, and mike hampton who contributed heavily to the earlier bootrsy albums. but still bootsy even though he wsa mad at warner brothers, and battling drug issues he recorded most of the songs himself and hired the brides, parlet, brandye, and his girl group godmama on vocals and they do a nice job bootsy explores new territories here he takes his funk and the p to new heights and the album was a good classic a shame it did'nt have a hit song good place to hear bootsy get creative and expand on the space bass and every tune is a smash f encounter is cool but would have been better if shjorter. my favorites are fatcat, it's a musical, and soundcrack bootsy and p funk was getting ready for the 80's but the world was'mt ready this album you can hear a lot of where hip hop, dance and techno came from.

this is probalby my favorite Bootsy Album all the way through. just for the bumping funk of "f-Encounter" and the way the Grooves never let up. Bootsy truly put you in a good mood with his blend of funk and Groove but the cat is very versatile and I have always dug his vocals as well. the whole P-funk Army is felt on this set,but lets remember Bootsy is a Multi Instrumentalist in his own right. YABBY, DABBY, DOO BABY!!!!!!!!

Format: Audio CD
This is a CD I already reviewed,but it's not this edition I own.In 1996 'Ultra Wave' was reissued by Warner Bros. Ol' School Music division and is one of a few albums in that series that went out of print and THAT is the edition I own.For those newcomers to this album I am including my review of that edition here as well so you'll know what you'll be getting when you purchase this.Well,I must say that Bootsy Collins's solo albums of the 70's tended to be longwinded affairs so intent on the right groove they meander too often.But on 1980's 'Ultra Wave' Bootsy gets on the one and STAYS THERE and on every single cut he never slips off into indulgant mandess.I imagine that may be why some P-Funk fans detest this album so-because they only enjoy that madness and may not really know how to funk.So unless your into P-funk for all the wrong reasons then 'Ultra Wave',like all Bootsy albums is THE BOMB!!!! "Mug Push" is the only song here available on Bootsy's best of collection and is basic midtempo P-funk.But let Bootsy up the tempo and this CD COOKS-"F-Encounter","It's A Musical","Fat Cat" and "Sound Crack" are all pounding,rhythmic FONK of mammoth preportions,only with no shameless sloganeering.They're lean,grooving and almost tuneful.The two songs that stand out in my mind though are the roadhouse P-funk comic shuffle of "Is That My Song?",a wry,comic self anylysation on Bootsy's own change in style."Sacred Flower" is yet more affecting midtempo funk-leaving 'Ultra Wave' groovalistic,highly booty shaking without a ballad in the bunch.Personally I prefer this era in Bootsy Collins's career,circa 1980-1982 because the bassist finally located his place within the one and worked it to death rather then make alot of noise trying to look freaky.Read more ›
