London calling to the faraway towns
Now war is declared, and battle come down
London calling to the underworld
Come out of the cupboard, you boys and girls
London calling, now don't look to us
Phoney Beatlemania has bitten the dust
London calling, see we ain't got no swing
Except for the ring of that truncheon thing
The ice age is coming, the sun's zooming in
Meltdown expected, the wheat is growing thin
Engines stop running, but I have no fear
'Cause London is drowning, and I live by the river
Now get this...
London calling, yes, I was there too
And you know what they said? Well, some of it was true!
London calling at the top of the dial
And after all this, won't you give me a smile?
London calling... I never felt so much alike alike alike alike...
Bootsy Collins - Ahh...the name is Bootsy, Baby (released January 14th 1977)
Second solo album from Bootsy and for me head and shoulders above his other solo work. George Clintons bass supremo was just too big to be a sideman, in talent and in character. A massive influence (and sample source) to hip hop music but it's just a great album in its own right too. Super funky, super slick and good fun. There's some nice psychedelic guitar flourishes (from Bootsy's older brother Catfish Collins) to go along with Bootsy very distinctive funk Bass, George Clinton produces and appears on here too. My favourite is one of the slower jams 'What's a telephone Bill' it's so damnnnn smootchy, and let's just say Eazy E must have been a big fan of this album!
If you want a break from traditional guitar music get this big slice of 70's funk in your ears. #bootsycollins#georgeclinton#funkmusic#funkvinyl#soulmusic#funkadelic#365spins#vinyljunkie#vinylporn#bass#catfishcollins#70svinyl#70smusic#hiphopsamples#vinylrecords#hiphopmusic#classicfunk
