Party Up In Here is off the second album from The Brides of Funkenstein released in 1979 - Never Buy Texas From a Cowboy. The duo was formed by George Clinton in 1977 to become part of the growing P-Funk Collective. They often would be an opening act for Parliament or Funkadelic shows, who they would also sing backup vocals for.
One Nation Under A Groove was the most successful albums for Funkadelic, and this song was their biggest hit. Some have called it the greatest funk album of all-time, and Rolling Stone has it on their list of the best 500 greatest albums of all time. This clip is from a 1979 concert at the Capital Center just outside Washington DC.
Disco To Go was the first single off the debut album from The Brides Of Funkentein. The album was written and produced by partners in funk George Clinton and Bootsy Collins. Before being released on the album, the song had been played live by Bootsy's Rubber Band. The Brides Of Funkenstein were P-Funk backup singers Lynn Mabry and Dawn Silva, who had previously been with Sly and The Family Stone.
Body Language is off Trombipulation, the tenth and final Parliament album in 1980. This album, unlike previous Parliament and Funkadelic albums, was not produced single handedly by George Clinton. Co-producer Bootsy Collins played almost all the instruments on some of the albums tracks.
Mothership Connection in 1975 was the fourth album by Parliament, and it was the first album to feature newly adopted Maceo Parker and Fred Wesley - they had just left James Brown's back-up band The JB's. TV network VH1 has declared that Mothership Connection is the 55th greatest album of all-time. (find some studio versions on P-FUNK JUKEBOX)
This is some very rare 1971 footage of Parliament from their Osmium album. This first Parliament album released in 1970 was released just before Bootsy Collins, Bernie Worrell and Gary Shider.
