Parliament - Funkentelechy Vs. The Placebo Syndrome mp3 album

His lead vocal is both playful and passionate: Otis Redding as gunslinger philosopher. While Funkentelechy is no exception. Clinton’s production work here is atypically light and clear. Michael Hampton’s expert guitar solos quiver starkly in the mix, and Clinton even strives to make his own lyrics intelligible - not coherent maybe, but intelligible.

See All. The Best of Parliament - Give Up the Funk. Mothership Connection.
