Tight, Funky and Tripped Out

"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."
I Liked This Ride To The Land of PFunk More Than Any Other!

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
I just heard it's gonna be one of those FUNKY things

"The Motor Booty Affair has a unique sound for a Parliament album, but it ranks up there with Mothership Connection as one of the band's supreme accomplishments. Basically it is a loose concept album about funky goings-on in the underwater city of Atlantis. As a result, there are various attempts at crafting an "underwater" sound, from extra-bubbly bass to gargling vocals to swirling horns and guitars, and of course, innumerable oceanic puns. The length to which they succeed is more than admirable. Most importantly, though, this is a collection of nine tremendous songs.
The one-two punch of "Mr. Wiggles" and "Rumpofsteelskin" introduce us to a couple of new characters in the Parliament universe, but more importantly set the tone with bouncy, light-hearted grooves that rank among the catchiest the band has ever recorded. Gone is the darkness of "Sir Nose D'Voidoffunk" and the social commentary of "Chocolate City". This is life-affirming music. Nowhere else has George Clinton and company ever made a whole album this fun, all the way through. "Water Sign" is the only down-tempo track on the album, and it mixes the group's trademark sleaze with a somewhat sincere attempt at a love song. It is truly a delirious highlight. Before we get too relaxed, however, Parliament picks up the pace again with "Aqua Boogie" and "One of Those Funky Things". "Liquid Sunshine" is an experience all to itself, from the trippy onslaught of an intro to the relentless, pulsating funk of the track's climax. The title track edges up real close to disco, but Parliament is so secure in their funkiness that there's no chance of them falling into the chasm. In fact, after the bridge, you'll probably find yourself questioning how it's possible that any band ever sounded so unselfconsciously funky. By the time the epic closer, "Deep", rolls around, you're not sure if you've been funking for a matter of minutes or hours, but you can rest assured that you aren't about to stop.
Whenever I hear Motor Booty Affair, I'm convinced that it's the greatest album ever recorded by Parliament, Funkadelic, George Clinton or anybody else for that matter. Of course, there are a few other albums I can say that about as well. One thing is for sure, however, and that is no P-Funk incarnation ever recorded an album that melded all of the individual band member's talents into such a seamless, unstoppable force. You're never inclined to say "that's a Bernie Worrell track" or "the horns really carry that one". Instead, all of the instruments are woven into a dense fabric that is difficult to separate. The grooves are never really spaced out like they are on prior Parliament albums (although they are definitely "spaced out"), and the layered, vocals-by-committee approach was never really used as effectively before. In all, Parliament delivers a perfect, intense blast of Summer funk that never lets the party slow up.
