Good stuff
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Used to listen to bootsy in high school (way back when). It was great then and still holds up well today. Some of the instruments sound a bit dated, but overall he still has that feeling. I think it is hilarious that Amazon recommends actual "rubber bands" as something I might like to buy after I view bootsy's cd's page. Shows that these "intelligent" computers still have some way to go...hehe"
How Bootsy Got His Groove On

(5 out of 5 stars)

"This was Bootsy's third successful effort on LP. It came at the height of his popularity when people were trying to capitalize on his sound (ie. Rick James, George Duke,...). Nearly every song is word perfect in terms of his style and execution. This CD is a must for any student of true funk music."
Get your roto-rooter going!

"When he wasn't providing the groovy booty-shaking bass for George Clinton's Parliament/Funkadelic, Bootsy was laying to record his own funk gems. Bootsy did not go it alone as he was aided by the Rubber Band. Together, Bootsy's Rubber Band released a one-two-three punch with Stretchin' Out Bootsy's Rubber Band, Ahh...the Name is Bootsy, Baby!, and Bootsy? Player of the Year. Forgotten to all except connoisseurs of funk.

Bootsy? Player of the Year is Bootsy's Rubber Band in top form. The album see the band stretch its chops from twitchy funk ("Bootsy What's the Name of this Town") to celestial groove ("Bootzilla") to hazy soul ("As In I Love You"). "Roto-Rooter" is a funk stomper; one can't help but dance along with the bubbly bass lines.

There is a wide depth to this album showcasing the songwriting talent of Bootsy Collins. His use of the Rubber Band to achieve is version of funk is of great reward to the listener.

It may be the best album Parliament/Funkadelic never recorded."
