Parliament-Up For The Down Stroke

Parliament Up For The Down Stroke:

Doo-wop vocals, funky guitars, horny horns. Lets not forget crazy lyrics, interesting song structures, and amazing improv. Though not as fully awe inspiring as they would become, this album still turns heads and can make even the most introverted wallflower want to shake their ass.

Parliament-Mothership Connection

Parliament Mothership Connection:

Possibly the funkiest album ever made. Filled with dance-able tunes top notch musicianship, and a sci-fi theme. If you want to dance you can’t do much better than this album.

The Bamboos – Side Stepper

The Bamboos Side Stepper:

A solid modern funk album, by some of the most stylish men in music. While, The Bamboos original songs are strong dance-able funk tunes, their cover of The Kings of Leon’s song Kings of Rodeo sticks out. I’d like to see an entire album with a Meg Washington fronted Bamboos.
