    Excellent example of what sets Bootsy apart from the rest. I know it can be hard to confirm who played what on P-Funk recordings, but if this ain't Bootsy, it's somebody copping his style. It's also another excellent example of the awesome tone Bootsy gets without effects. He uses them for variety, not out of need.

    he's great on the fred wesley and the horny horns stuff and the brides of funkenstein. i've figured out which of the p-funk bassist he is (sound wise on the songs) and am able to hear it. he's got a couple stock licks he uses all the time that are very recognizable.

    I never really thought that Billy Bass or Cordell played anything remotely close to sounding like Bootsie. I am a fan of Bootsie but I'd rather hear one of the others when it comes to the "P". As far as Mr.Browns band give me Bootsie and Catfish (RIP):crying:

    Oh definitely. I never saw anything that told me it was Bootsy, but it sounds so much like him it's got to be. He loves his slides.

    I've just been informed that, according to the liner notes, it was Lige that played on this song, not Bootsy...
