”If you will suck my soul, I will lick your funky emotions…”
”Motor City Madness is a compilation featuring songs recorded for Westbound Records during the band’s career with that label from 1968 to 1976.”
”Ah, yes. Funkadelic who do it all here. They rocked, they funked, they rhythmed & a few other things too. Eddie Hazel is a forgotten legend on lead guitar (“Maggot Brain”) & Bootsy Collins a well remembered bassist. There are only two songs here that got chart action & neither of the two were actually on the traditional Pop Singles chart. But Funkadelic was not about hits. There were about funk, partying &, in general, to use one of our more recent phrases: shock & awe. The two songs that actually charted were “A Joyful Process” which went to #38 on the Black Singles chart & “Get Off Your A** and Jam” which went to #14 on the Club Play chart. Some of the better known songs included in this collection are: “Free Your Mind and Your A** Will Follow”, “Standing on the Verge of Getting It On”, “Funky Dollar Bill”, “Cosmic Slop”, “Loose Booty”, “I Got a Thing, You Got a Thing, Everybody’s Got a Thing”, “Music For My Mother”, ”I Wanna Know If It’s Good To You”, ”I’ll Bet You”, ”You And Your Folks”, ”Mommy, What’s A Funkadelic”…
This is a great collection of Funkadelic with George Clinton at the helm, sailing into waters that few groups dared to venture into. Get this and get your freak on, you freakazoids. Sure, there’s some songs missing as always on any compilation. Solution; Get all their freaking music, you maggot brain.” [amazon reviews]

”Eeny, meeny, miney mo, catch a junkie by the toe.
