Parliament and Funkadelic are the kings of funk in my opinion, but they have a nasty tendency to put loads of filler tracks on their albums. IE, Standing on the Verge of Getting It On only had two tracks that were even listenable (Jimmy's Got a Little Bit of B**** in Him... seriously??). I noticed this trend with quite a bit of funk classics as well (I'm looking at you James Brown). Mothership Connection on the other hand is just one of those front to back masterpieces. Every time I listen all the way through it I notice something I never heard before. Every bassline is just killer too. Judging by the tone it seems like it's all Bootsy. Anyone agree?
