P-Funk: unreleased tracks,live albums,odds and ends

As I continue to complete my P-Funk collection,I just recently purchased all five volumes of the "George Clinton family series" CDs......a collection of from-the-vault outtakes.Do you guys know about these CDs?

here's an example of what you find on these CDs."Go Fer Your Funk" is an unreleased Parliament jam recorded in 1979.I think this song would have worked well on the Gloryhallastoopid album,perhaps in place of "Party People"?

Another project that I didn't know about.I ordered the CD......

U.S. Music with Funkadelic is a self-titled album consisting of tracks recorded in the early 1970s by the band United Soul with input from members of Funkadelic. The album was released by Westbound Records in 2009... Usmusicwithpfunk.jpg

U.S. Music with Funkadelic was George Clinton's first attempt to launch a P-Funk spin off act using up and coming musicians from his home town of Plainfield, New Jersey. "U.S." refers to the band United Soul, whose lead vocalist and guitarist Garry Shider provided guest vocals on the Funkadelic album Maggot Brain in 1971.[1] Following this, Clinton signed United Soul to his label, Parliafunkadelicment Thang Inc, and facilitated a collaboration between them and a few of his Funkadelic bandmates who were based in Toronto at the time.[1] The group recorded the five songs presented on this album, though only the tracks "Baby I Owe You Something Good" and "I Miss My Baby" were originally released as a one-off single by Westbound in 1972.[2] The release was credited to "U.S. Music with Funkadelic", which was probably meant to denote "U.S. with Music by Funkadelic" or simply "U.S. with Funkadelic".[citation needed]

Following this collaboration, Garry Shider officially joined the Parliament-Funkadelic collective together with fellow United Soul members Larry and Cordell Mosson,[1] and in 1973 an alternate version of the song "This Broken Heart" was included on the Funkadelic album Cosmic Slop.[3] A slower version of "Baby I Owe You Something Good" was also recorded by Funkadelic for the 1975 album Let's Take It to the Stage,[4] and The Brides of Funkenstein recorded their own version of "Rat Kiss the Cat on the Navel" in 1977, which was later featured on the 1993 compilation album A Fifth of Funk.[5] The original United Soul recordings from the 1972 single were included on the 1993 compilation Music for Your Mother: Funkadelic 45s,[6] and when the back-catalog of Funkadelic albums was remastered and re-released on CD in 2005, the original version of "Baby I Owe You Something Good" was included as a bonus track on Let's Take It to the Stage[7] and "I Miss My Baby" included with Maggot Brain.

How does everyone like the 1983 album Urban Dancefloor Guerillas by the P-Funk All Stars?

Urban Dance Floor Guerillas

It's been said that George wasn't completely happy with the tracklist and the sequence of the songs...so a later version of the album,titled Hydraulic Funk,was released containing the proper sequence (and artwork) that George wanted...

Hydraulic Funk

Which one do you have? smile I have both

I remember buying this (with a slightly different cover) back when it was released in the 90s. I think I paid like $15 for it

This track "Clone Communicado" is really interesting.It's a 1976 outtake from the Clones Of Dr.Funkenstein album.If you were a member of the P-Funk fan club back then,you received a floppy 45 single of this song in the mail! A very rare collector's item,for sure.The song appears on Volume 2 of the George Clinton Family Series CDs.

Your journey into funkdom is getting deeper. There are 2 other versions of that 4 disc live set you may want to seek out.

I believe that this is a 1977 outtake from the Brides Of Funkenstein's first album.

I wonder how long was the Newburgh 1976 rehearsal?The clan could have rehearsed more songs.

what I would really like to see is an officially released concert DVD of the 1978 tour.They were promoting the 'Motor Booty Affair' and 'One Nation Under A Groove' albums and I heard that this tour was fantastic.

Yup and then the ultra rare Japanese version which I don't have. Still kicking myself over the only time I ever saw it in a store and passed on the hundred dollar price tag years ago.
