Funkadelic - The Electric Spanking of War Babies Click here to see this CD at!

By Rob O'Connor

George Clinton's Funkadelic went through many changes over the years and though the group's name is here, neither the personnel nor the music has much in common with the earlier incarnations. That said, there is some fantastic playing here. Newer members--Blackbyrd McKnight, Ron Ford, and Ron Dunbar among them--keep the energy level high and shift the music into heavy funk. Clinton pal and influence Sly Stone takes a few turns at the mike and Eddie Hazel proves there was no guitar player more equipped to match wits with Clinton. The lyrics are sublimely surreal and the band's musical quotes (including "She Loves You") are dexterous and right on the money.

"Just a few good cuts here. The title cut is vintage Funkadelic, screaming guitars, funky bass line and the FunkOverlord's loopy open. I wish they had done more with "Funk Gets Stronger" it's good but I think they could have rocked out more."Oh I" is outstanding and Micheal Brecker's sax is a killer!"
