"Ms. Mabry and Ms. Silva are truly a funky pair. "Disco to Go" is definitely the "cut" on this CD. Normally, I would never rate an entire CD based on one song, but "Disco to Go" was out of this world. Delivered by two lovely, funky, talented ladies. I paid $26 for it. If you can, wait for the price to drop - Frankly, I couldn't! I have been hooked on the P-Funk sound, since 1974! Five stars!"

"Ah man, what to say about this one! Having already become a funkateer and being turned out to Parliament/Funkadelic and Bootsy, this was the first P-Funk "spin off" that I collected and from beginning to end this one does not let up for one minute! My favs are "Disco to Go" and "Birdie". "Disco to Go" is truly hot and right up there with "Flashlight" and "Aqua Boogie" as one of the best P-Funk songs ever committed to wax! The bass line on this track (borrowed from "Ahh the Name is Bootsy Baby") is so funky you gotta shake somethin' after it hits! And the horns/drums intro and outro is so hot, George may have had seconds thoughts about cutting this with the Brides and not with Parliament! Birdie is also a funk scorcher and why this track was not released as a single is a mystery to me! The Brides vocals on this track, coupled with George's ad libs are outstanding but it's the last two mins of the song that will set it off on the dancefloor! The weakest track on here is the ballad "When You're Gone". It's not a bad song, and the Brides are still in good voice vocally here, I just don't like the string arrangement. Speaking of the Brides vocally I'm still amazed at how Lynn and Dawn's vocals are almost hypnotic, always blending, never contrasting and undeniably funky! This one is defintely worth seeking out even though the price of the import is a little steep. It's really easy to find this one on wax, provided you live in a city that has good Record collection stores, but if you can't, it's definitely worth purchasing as an import. Hopefully "Never Buy Texas From a Cowboy", which is just as essential as "Funk or Walk", will be released. All in all, good P-Funk jollies for yo' earhole!"
