Ickmusic Live: Parliament Funkadelic, 1978

george clinton

A trip back to 1978, when I was all of 8 years old, buried in the snow of a northern Minnesota winter. Across the pond, George Clinton and his traveling troupe of funkateers were most likely highly enjoying themselves in Amsterdam, taking in the sights, and – no doubt – taking in all the town had to offer.

  3. That’s the best live recording I’ve ever heard for the P-Funk. It was at the height of the band – thanks for posting this!
