Funk - Released October 23, 2020 | Sweetwater Sounds

The name, the title, the sleeve… There’s little doubt of what we might find inside this umpteenth album by the great funk guru, who still rocks his platform boots at 69 years old. As often is the case with Bootsy, the record is a mere excuse for getting some friends together and diving into an XXL funk orgy and jam session. Power of the One does not buck the trend with a minimum of one guest per song! Snoop Dogg, whose flow marvellously glues to the master’s bass, joins the fray as well as an array of 5-star bassists like the groovy legend Larry Graham, Christian McBride and Victor Wooten. Let us not forget the saxophonist Branford Marsalis, guitarist George Benson and even the philosopher and writer Cornel West. As the pandemic obliges, the majority of these collaborations were made at a distance without taking away any of the party spirit… The years have gone by but the Bootsy of 2020 sounds just like he did in the 70s and 80s as he slaloms through tracks that sound more like funk/soul/jazz/rap jams than real compositions. With its excitable Sci-Fi lyrics, social caricatures and party spirit, the funk on this record remains anchored in the world of uncle George Clinton’s P-Funk and a tradition that he consistently references (on WantMe2Stay, Bootsy revisits Sly and Family Stone’s If You Want Me to Stay). © Marc Zisman

Funk - Released January 15, 1977 | Warner Records

Bootsy Collins' debut solo album, Stretchin' Out in Bootsy's Rubber Band, was an extremely tough act to follow, but thankfully, there are no signs of a sophomore slump (either creatively or commercially) on his second album, Ahh...The Name Is Bootsy, Baby! Most P-funk addicts consider this 1977 LP essential listening, and it isn't hard to see why they feel that way. Everything on the album is excellent; that is true of up-tempo smokers like "The Pinocchio Theory" and the title song as well as slow, moody, eerie offerings such as "What's a Telephone Bill?" and "Munchies for Your Love." The lyrics are consistently humorous and clever, the grooves are consistently infectious. You can think of Ahh...The Name Is Bootsy, Baby! as a meeting of the funk minds -- Collins produced this record with his mentor, George Clinton, who co-wrote all of the material. So Clinton has a lot of input and gives Ahh...The Name Is Bootsy, Baby! the distinctive P-funk sound that Parliament/Funkadelic was known for. But at the same time, he encourages Collins' originality -- Bootsy's Rubber Band sounds like a Parliament/Funkadelic spin-off (which is exactly what it was), but not a Parliament/Funkadelic clone. Without question, Ahh...The Name Is Bootsy, Baby! is essential listening for lovers of hard 1970s funk. © Alex Henderson /TiVo

Funk - Released October 27, 2017 | Mascot Records

A great funk guru from his earliest years, Bootsy Collins is to the electric bass what Jimi Hendrix was to the electric guitar. Alongside James Brown and the two George Clinton vehicles (Parliament and Funkadelic), but also going solo, Bootsy is a peerless firestorm of groove. A master of funk whose powers have only ever grown over the last 65 years. With World Wide Funk, which he recorded in his Re-Hab studio in his hometown of Cincinatti, the characterful bassist has brought out an orgy of funk, soul and rap, to which he has brought a staggering array of stars: Doug E. Fresh, Buckethead, Alissia Benveniste, Snoop Dogg, Victor Wooten, Manou Gallo, Stanley Clarke, Dennis Chambers, Eric Gales, Musiq Soulchild, Big Daddy Kane, Chuck D from Public Enemy, MC Eiht and even Bernie Worrell. Bootsy isn't reinventing anything here: but he is offering yet another ride on a groovy rollercoaster that's difficult to resist. Once a funkster, always a funkster. © CM/Qobuz

Funk - Released December 3, 2013 | Ryko - Rhino

This live double set overcomes some of the tentative feeling of Collins' 1994 debut on Rykodisc and builds some of the thump back into the funk, with Collins and band (which includes longtime P-Funk supporters like keyboardist Bernie Worrell, vocalist Mudbone Cooper and drummer Frankie "Kash" Waddy) putting serious energy into an 18-number set recorded in Tokyo, Japan. Curiously enough, Bootsy trades off bass duties with guitarist Flip Cornett, so some cuts feature Bootsy playing rhythm guitar rather than his famous Space Bass -- the latter not always being needed on some of the songs. The playing is tight and cheerful, with lots of call-and-response going on with the audience. Fun was obviously had by all concerned, and that projects nicely on this double set, making it an entertaining listen even though the majority of the numbers will be more than a little familiar to longtime passengers on the Mothership. © Steven McDonald /TiVo
