Editorial Reviews

Out of print in the U.S.! This is the 24-bit digitally remastered reissue of George Clinton's debut solo album, originally released in 1982. Although he didn't invent Funk, Clinton single-handedly took it to a new level that was, more often than not, out of this world! By the time he got around to recording this solo album, the Funk scene had gone underground and the charts were filled with Synthesizer-driven dance music. Clinton updated his Funk sensibilities and created a new style of Synth-driven Funk from Outta Space! Features seven tracks including the massive hit 'Atomic Dog'. EMI.

This entire CD is on the one. Of course "Atomic Dog" is the main cut, however "Man's Best Friend" is also a funky type of "Knee Deep" groove. "Loopzilla" is also a good song to dance to. The title cut "Computer Games" is as crazy as the artist. LOL. However, this album has a Funkadelic overtone. With musicians like Bootsy, Bernie, Mike, Junie, Eddie Hazel, Garry Shider and ect ect. it's worth buying. I think this is the best George Clinton album of all time. It's a R&B Clssid and for the life of me I don't understand why it did not make the national top 40. Even the title cut went to 80 something on the charts. Go figure. George did get a award for the best video of that year.

I don't think anyone seen or HEARD this coming!! With all of legal stuff behind him, Clinton had some serious fun here and Capitol Records had the last laugh!! This album is not just a gem, but 24 karat FUNK and Clintons best album ever!! The jams begin with "Get Dressed". An old school Funker that includes the horny horns and then the funk gets into high gear with "Mans Best Friend" The keyboard bass line brings shivers down ones spine and then it tingles on "Loopzilla". TURN THOSE WOOFERS UP FOR THESE FINE TUNES!! As a matter of fact, turn the treble up and while your at it PUMP UP THE VOLUME!! The beats are hardhitting. And then ,of course, the CLASSIC "Atomic Dog". The only complaint I have about this MASTERPIECE is that it is too SHORT!! A MUST BUY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

During the first five years of me getting into P-Funk? Part of my ever continuing education on the subject was the understanding of internal connectivity. When most people think of George Clinton? Motherships and clones might come to mind. Somehow the term I associate with him is atomic. An atomic detonation comes from a chain reaction of split atoms. Originally from one source but,when unleashed,create a powerful burst of energy. That describes P-Funk extremely well to me: the forces of it are many,and ALWAYS behind it's musical might. So this is not Parliament,Funkadelic or even P-Funk All Stars we're talking about here. This is George Clinton. Yet Bootsy,Junie,Gary Shider,Fred Wesley are all still here on this 1982 debut of the man now recording under his own name. And as always? He had a lot to say,in his own kind of way.

"Get Dressed" is something of a "star is born" type setup to begin the album with it's thick,bass heavy stomp with the Horny Horns really getting going with Junie's funky stride piano for a classic call and response P-Funk jam. "Man's Best Friend/Loopzilla" is a 12+ minute groove that...well as I told my friend Henrique? Could easily write an entire book chapter on this one song. It begins with an electronic extension of "(Not Just) Knee Deep" basically. Than it goes directly into this stripped down,early hip-hop type pulse that lyrically references classic Motown to Sir Nose himself. "Pot Sharing Tots" combines reggae and jazzy electric piano for a very insinuating type of melody. The title song combines a schintilating rock solo on the choruses and a funkier rhythm guitar on the refrains.

Great CD, probably George's best solo CD. The stuff on the CD was copied by a lot of musicians (i.e. backward drum sounds, loops) and set the standard of using samples and loops in R&B (remember this was 1982!!). I just wish he would have put the unedited Man's Best Friend on this album. If you haven't heard it go get it! I think its released on a P-Funk compilation

Clinton's most famous solo project, and there's a good reason for that. It's exactly the kind of bizarre, goofy funk record George is known for, and while it's not as good as peak P-Funk - there's a bit too much drum machine here for my taste, especially considering this guy used to work with the legendary drummer Jerome Brailey - it's still great, packed to the gills with memorable dance songs. The unforgettably loopy, oft-sampled hit "Atomic Dog" is here, and it rivals the best of the whole Parliafunkabootsydelicmant Thang, with its bizarre lyrics, gigantic chanted hook, crazed voiceovers, and highly danceable rhythms, it's an inarguable funk classic. I've heard all of the lyrics were improvised, and I'd believe that. The extended groove "Man's Best Friend/Loopzilla" is here too, and it's impossible not to dance to it - like the best of Clinton's extendo dance tracks, the thirteen minutes just fly by, and its references to old Motown, Funkadelic, and other soul hits of the '60s and '70s are genius. And, despite a few truly annoying moments like the cloying "Pot Sharing Tots," most of the other songs are quite good too: the frenetically-paced title track, with goofy voices and bizarre sci-fi keyboards; "Get Dressed" is an entertaining but ordinary dance tunnel; "Free Alterations" is a fine example of Clinton's odd way with a slow jam. I suppose one could complain that it's in the typical P-Funk mold, but the typical P-Funk mold is fantastic, so there you have it. I'm not gonna complain at all. To me, the only real disappointment is the lack of truly awesome songs. "Man's Best Friend" and "Atomic Dog" are certainly up there, but there's not enough honestly classic material to put it at the same level as the Motor-Booty Affair, let alone Mothership Connection, Funkentelechy vs.Read more ›
