Up For The Down Stroke (Bonus Tracks)

Up For The Down Stroke by Parliament
Released: Jan 1974
Label: Island Mercury
The seminal masters of funk released this second album in 1974. Up For The Down Stroke is the first instance where their musical style is markedly different from George Clinton's Funkadelic material. The titular opening cut made it to No. 10 on the R&B charts and is a veritable blueprint of not just P-Funk's plans for the decade but of '70s funk itself. That means a cast of singers deliver their lines over the stellar jamming of Bernie Worrell, Eddie Hazel and Bootsy! Bootsy! Bootsy!
