Long Beach 2014 [no label, 2CD]

Live at the 6th Annual Long Beach Funk Fest, Queen Mary Events Park, Long Beach, CA; September 1, 2014. Very good audience recording.

Crank this up…

Older funk fans already know of George Clinton and Parliament/Funkadelic from the ’70s but the emergence of hip-hop in the ’80s and ’90s meant a new generation of listeners are now exposed to P-Funk; where P-Funk beats and samples rest easily on Dr Dre and 2Pac tunes.

George Clinton is already 73 and he is still burnin’ down the house.

Thanks to obaaron (Aaron Bowers) who recorded and shared the tracks at Dime.

  2. i saw clinton a total of about 8-10x and most of those were 76-85 and perhaps once since but not more than 7 yrs later. in my opinion nothing he did live since that first 10 year period i mentioned can be compared to that era. there are some very nicely recorded shows from that set of years that if u are a fan u should either have or try to find. most are either fm or sbd or tv brdcsts that can be audio extracted. check youtube for those if u have no other options. i also recommend sugarmeg.

  3. Brown and Clinton went to record Rythm and Blues, and they invented Funk. Some ugly producers stole the funk to fade it into disco. And the Clinton producers took him for trash in the 80’s, after all the money he brought to the company. The 70’s were a great period of time, the 80’s sound were really different, with standards like Flashlight. But the 1988 tour was really something. In France, they played in a very little place quite far from Paris and you could surf on funk juice, that music was so HOT !

  4. George Clinton and p-funk have always been great! i missed the late 60’s early 70’s. but I did catch funkadelic in 75 and saw the original Mothership plus almost every tour since then. While the lineups have changed Key personnel have passed, the band remains one of the greatest to see. I saw them in D.C. this year and the show was great and George seemed as energetic as ever. Rarely do you get to see such legends din small venues and affordable prices. I would rather see George, than the stones, Zeppelin, or any other Hall of Fame band.
