Half Notes: Rick James – Bustin' Out Of L Seven (1979)

Share this:

I do remember all those wild Funkadelic, Parliament and Rick James records being advertised in Creem magazeen back in the day. Never bought any at the time. Years later I got a copy of Funkadelic’s One Nation Under A Groove and realized that I’d made a terrible mistake. All those years devoid ‘o funk! This particular James record is a full-on funk assault, recorded before all of those nasty and sterile 1980s studio habits came into being. Check it out.
