One Nation Under A Groove should be orange I think. Also Standing On The Verge Of Getting It On should at the very least be bold and might well be red.

I think that The Clones of Dr. Funkenstein should be red, the same as Funkentelechy. A quick side by side quality comparison of the track lists for both matched up pretty closely imo.

Also, check out the "professional reviews" section on the far right of the wiki page:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Clones ... unkenstein

edit: I think Live: P-Funk Earth Tour should at least be bold, if not red. It features P Funk at the height of their powers and has a who's who of funk and P-Funk legends:

George Clinton
Eddie Hazel
Michael Hampton
Bootsy Collins
Bernie Worrell
Gary Shider
Glen Goins
Fred Wesley
Maceo Parker
among others

I doubt there has been a better touring funk band, personnel-wise than what is found on this live album. Not only that, but the performances crush. This release was lucky to capture Glen Goins on record shortly before he died an untimely death from lymphoma on July 29th, 1978. His soulful voice offset Clinton's deeper, grittier vocals and were one of the band's highlights. He really shines on this release during "Swing Down Sweet Chariot".

1. "P-Funk (Wants To Get Funked Up)" – 6:13
2. "Dr. Funkenstein's Supergroovalisticprosifunkstication Medley" – 4:58
3. "Do That Stuff" – 5:14
4. "The Landing (Of The Holy Mothership)" – 3:04
5. "The Undisco Kidd (The Girl Is Bad!)" – 7:02
6. "Children Of Productions" – 2:50
7. "Mothership Connection (Star Child)" – 5:51
8. "Swing Down, Sweet Chariot" – 5:06
9. "This Is The Way We Funk With You" – 5:03
10. "Dr. Funkenstein" – 15:07
11. "Gamin' On Ya!" – 4:09
12. "Tear The Roof Off The Sucker Medley" – 4:57
13. "Night Of The Thumpasorus People" – 6:13
14. "Fantasy Is Reality" – 6:40


This record is pretty much the essence of Parliament-Funkadelic.

Bold = third tier

Then piper has completely under-rated Funkadelic. They are one of my top three bands, so I admit up-front that I am more than a little biased. Parliament had the commerical success, but Funkadelic had the better and more innovative tunes.

IMO Funkadelic, Free Your Mind and Uncle Jam should all be Orange. America should only be bold, it's very good but slightly over-rated here. And Slop, Jollies, Stage and Standing should all be bold albums.

On the Parliament side, Osmium should at least be bold; but I am basing that on the bonus track re-issues.

Wow, honestly, I believe pretty much the exact opposite of almost everything you just posted.

So you think that Funkadelic was more commercially successful, while Parliament made the better, more innovative tunes?

The issue I have with that statement is not that I agree with one over the other, but rather that I disagree with dividing the bands in to groups like that. I think both bands had pretty innovative (and often times, pretty out there) songs.

And besides, I don't think anything Parliament released was as popular as One Nation Under a Groove.

Imo, a more appropriate grouping would be:

We are assuming that both bands are quirky funk bands with a guitar focus.

Funkadelic- harder edge, more psychedelic
Parliament- "lighter", and more danceable, crazy concept characters

Really?

Parliament: two platinum albums, four gold
Mothership Connection US 13 platinum
"Tear The Roof Off The Sucker" US 15
Funkentelechy US 13 platinum
"Flashlight" US 16

Funkadelic: one platinum album, one gold
One Nation US 16 platinum
"One Nation" US 28
