The Funk Had Started To Fizzle By This One!!
MUZIK4THAPEOPLE!! | Orlando, FL | 04/08/2008
(3 out of 5 stars)

"By the time this, the 4th of Bootsy's Rubberband's releases
was dropped on the funk-buying public in summer 1979, the
whole "P-Funk Thang" had began to peak & wane commercially
and drugs, ego-clashes, bad business moves, etc., were beginning
to bring the whole thing crashing down!
This offering was very weak and thrown together because
as Bootsy Collins & George Clinton have both said themselves,
they were nursing massive cocaine habits by this time and
George was at war with Warner Brothers Records
(both home to Bootsy's Rubberband & Funkadelic).
They basically took some hodge-podge tracks which were
leftover from Bootsy, Parliament/Funkadelic, Brides of Funkenstein
and Parlet sessions, spliced some crazy lyrics on them,
came up with a half baked album concept, and VIOLA!!---
"THIS BOOT WAS MADE FOR FONK'N!!"
This album comes nowhere near to the brilliance, tightness, wittiness,
and sheer funkiness of the preceeding 3 albums:
1976's "Stretchin' Out", 1977's "Ahh, The Name Is Bootsy Baby!"
and 1978's "Bootsy?"!!--No Way!!
The best tracks on here are "OH BOY GIRL", a slow jam
which flashes of the former genius of slow jams like
"I'd Rather Be With You", Munchies 4 Your Love",
"Physical Love", "Telephone Bill", "Very Yes", etc.
The other two good tracks are fast jams "BOOTSY GET LIVE"
and "JAM FAN (HOT!!)", which the latter was the lead single
and was moderately sucessful. This album is a collectors item
for people who admire and/or are researching the P-Funk legacy
and would be the only reason for really buying it.
But if you were there when this music was current,
the way I was, then you know that 1979 marked the death nell
of the Parliafunkdelicment Thang!! (After "Knee Deep",
"Freak Of The Week", and "Big Bang Theory/Theme From The Black Hole")---
The tides were changing and a new sound was brewing in Minneapolis
which would take over in the first part of the coming decade!
The Purple One was just beginning to turn heads in 1979...
Giving Notice That Something New & Funky Was Blowing In The Wind!!
