Although George Clinton and Parliament were known for their futuristic, space-age cosmic-slop imagery, they were far from a one-trick pony. Case in point is 1978's brilliant Motor Booty Affair, which found Clinton and the gang diving into the deep and coming back up for air with a collection of aqua-based songs as trippy and otherworldly as anything the group ever created. Anchored by squiggly synths, courtesy of Bernie Worrell, the CD found Clinton's mouthpiece Starchild strapping on his fins and hanging with the stingrays. The slithery and soulful title track ranks as one of the most complex compositions of Clinton's career, and (You're a Fish and I'm A) Water Sign" is Clinton's psychedelic love jones in full effect. Parliament were a group that rarely went wrong, and this H20 funkfest ranks as one of their finest moments. --Amy Linden

The music the lyrics everything about this particular Album rocked then as it does now. The MOTOR BOOTY AFFAIR was not just well done it was funny without being over the top vulgar. Unlike today's in your face nasty lyrics this was sexual tinted situations with good natured fun thrown in. This was music back when artists knew how to say just enough in a song to inspire your inner freak to take over and fill in ALL the blanks. Trust me the fantasies most people's inner PFUNK Freak create are far more kinky, graphic and strange than the stuff you hear detailed in todays music.

I loved the PSYHOALPHADISCOBETABIOAQUADOOLOOP! Parliament just blows most other music away. Just add George Duke's Dukey Stick and Bootsy Collins Bootzilla (Worlds Only Rhinestone Rock Star Doll Baby Bubba: JUST Wind Me UP!) and you would have a really large funk party. If you like this Motor Booty Affair music For its Fun P-Funkability look also at Parliament's: Tales From The Black Hole... Where Sir Nose and The Star Child have their great battle... It too is halarious.

You will enjoy this if you like PFUNK because you can't do much better feeding your PFunk JONES than buying The Motor Booty Affair. This collection of Exceptionally PFine PFunk is Especially good if you like hanging out with a Mouse Named JAWS or trading water signs with a meirmaid named Rita! If you are really lucky Motor Booty Affair PFUNK will teach you how to swim under water without getting wet! Just Ask Sir Nose De Void Of FUNK he learned How to do that very thing! I told you this album is funny buy it you will hear Exactly what I mean.

Peace to you all

When I first got into *the funk*, I started out by listening to James Brown, then somehow found The Ohio Players, The JBs, Gil Scott Heron, Tower of Power... stuff like that. - - At that time, not many P-Funk albums were in re-issue, but you could still get Mothership Connection and the Greatest Hits one. - - Hearing them for the first time was like a brick to the rump. Their strange mix of funk, disco, sci fi and music that sounded like you were tuning into a funky black radio station, circa 1976... on some distant planet (or in this case underwater) - - well, I didnt know how to take it... I mean, it wasnt your typical anything. It was like the Firesign Theatre on more drugs, with Bootsy and a few other outcasts from the JBs at the helm, and a madman at the lead (actually it was ! ! ! )
As for this album... to me, its one of Parliaments tightest - - conceptually and rhythmically. It is very funky, and I love the timbales and congas on this. The songs have a drive to them and Bootsy and The Horny Horns are hitting hard. In fact, while in early albums its pretty much Bernie Worell at the healm, in this album, the band overall shines. - - Theres even a great and spacy love song that is a close contender to Bootsys Whats a Telephone Bill... however for the most part this album is basically wacked out and intensive dancefloor music. Its the one Parliament album I ALWAYS find myself coming back to. (IF you like this album youll probably love CLONES OF DR. FUNKENSTEIN as well, an album in which THE HORNY HORNS are amply showcased.)
The audio samples should do the selling ! - - Incidently check out VERY early CAMEO (circa FUNK FUNK)... speaking of CLONES of Dr. Funkenstein.

Some background: I'm 56 years old and a lifelong serious music fan, but somehow I just didn't "get" P-Funk the first time around. Then, about 9 months ago, I heard "Can You Get To That" from Maggot Brain and knew that Funkadelic deserved a second look. Since then, Funkadelic has made up a significant portion of my listening, but I had it in my head that I preferred the early stuff (One Nation and before).

I was in my local vinyl shop and stumbled on a mint copy of Motor Booty Affair, and was drawn in by the amazing album graphics (complete with pop-up and cutout characters!). I took it home, put it on the turntable, and strapped on my Grado headphones. To say the least, I was blown away. This was supposed to be silly party music, but what I was hearing was some of the most dense, complex, creative, trippy and joyous music that I'd ever heard. Side 1, Mr. Wiggles-Rumpofsteelskin-I'm A Fish-Aqua Boogie, has to be one of the great album sides ever made! I must have listened to it a dozen times that first week.

Although the whole Mob was in top form, this seems to be a Junie Morrison/Bernie Worrell album, and it's not uncommon for a single song to contain many different keyboard sounds, all swirling in the background and dancing with the horns. The keyboard workouts on Aqua Boogie and Deep leave no doubt that Bernie is one of the true musical geniuses of our time. "Deep" is 9+ minutes long, and when the end comes, I'm not ready for it to be over. For Junie's part, he brings the fun, with his hilarious voices, twisted concepts, and amazing lyrics.

The whole thing reaches its glorious climax on "Deep", when the chorus kicks in with "We're gonna raise Atlantis to the top, With the bump, and the bop!".
