The Definitive Disco Funk 12" Collection

In the 1970s and early 1980s, a new group of musicians further developed the "funk rock" approach innovated by
George Clinton, with his main bands Parliament and, later, Funkadelic. Together, they produced a new kind of funk
sound heavily influenced by jazz and psychedelic rock. The two groups had members in common and often are
referred to collectively as "Parliament-Funkadelic." The breakout popularity of Parliament-Funkadelic gave rise to the
term "P-Funk", which referred to the music by George Clinton's bands, and defined a new subgenre.  "P-funk" also
came to mean something in its quintessence, of superior quality, or sui generis, as in the lyrics from "P-Funk (Wants
to Get Funked Up)" a hit single from Parliament's album "Mothership Connection".  The 1970s was probably the era of
highest mainstream visibility for funk music. George Clinton played a masterminding role in Bootsy's Rubber Band and
several other bands he put together, including Parlet, the Horny Horns, and the Brides of Funkenstein, all part of the
P-Funk conglomerate.

In the early 1970’s, when funk was becoming more mainstreamed, artists like Parliament, Funkadelic, Rufus & Chaka
Khan, the Isley Brothers, Sly and the Family Stone, Ohio Players, Labelle, Confunkshun, among others, were
successful and getting radio play but according to Billboard Magazine, only Sly & the Family Stone had singles which
made it to #1. In 1970 ‘Thank You (Falettinme Be Mice Elf Agin)’ hit # 1 as did ‘Family Affair’ in 1971 affording Sly and
Funk crossover success and greater recognition unlike some of their equally talented but moderately popular peers
before the arrival of Disco around the middle of that decade which remained hugely popular until the early 80's.
Herbie Hancock starting with his 1973 "Head Hunters" album continued playing funk throughout his entire career. In
fact, all of his 70's albums after "Head Hunters" were heavily influenced by Funk. It was the main driving force of
Hancock's 70's music, most of it being instrumental. He was also one of the first big jazz artists to switch his sound to

Disco music owed a great deal to funk. Many early disco songs and performers came directly from funk-oriented
backgrounds. Some disco music hits, for example "I'm Your Boogie Man" by KC & The Sunshine Band, "I'm Every
Woman" by Chaka Khan also known as The Queen of Funk Soul, and "Le Freak" by Chic, included riffs or rhythms
very similar to funk music.
