The Clones of Dr. Funkenstein is an album by funk band Parliament, released in September 1976. The album is notable for featuring horn arrangements by ex-James Brown band member, Fred Wesley. The album charted at on the Billboard R&B Albums chart, on the Billboard pop chart, and became Parliament's second album to be certified gold. Two singles were released off the album, "Do That Stuff", which charted at and "Dr. Funkenstein" which charted at #43.

Just picked up the 180g reissue. Sounds fantastic, all instrumentation really shines. Responder Notifique-me 1 Helpful. This is a great album but my sealed copy was incredibly warped. It's like watching waves in the ocean. Amazingly it plays fine.

The clones get up and do their thing throughout, and if it's not The Wall, then that's all to its benefit. The immediate downside of Clones is that it's a fairly one-note record - every groove can just about be exchanged for any other one, unlike the wider variety apparent on other releases. Given Clinton and company's sheer work rate, something likely had to give and this is one of the stress points. There are a couple of stronger songs - "I've Been Watching You (Move Your Sexy Body)" is classic slow jam territory.

This album is the followup to the brilliant Mothership Connection, which is an absolute classic. In concept The Clones Of Dr. Funkenstein stays on the same path as the former (Dr. Funkenstein, Starchild’s ally, is introduced, and we get to know that the pyramids contain all the secrets of the Funk), but in musical terms the album tries to be a little more commercial. You might say; less nasty. Don’t let that scare you because this album is still classic Parliament. The grooves are tight and the singing is the most soulful I’ve ever heard (thanks to Glen Goins)

So in short, Parliament wants you to get silly and dance your ass off to their funky rhythms. It’s a rather simple idea and maybe to some people it’s too simple for The Clones of Dr. Funkenstein to really be considered concept album. Concept album or not, their method works really well and is fairly unique and influential giving their leader, George Clinton, the well deserved title of King of Funk (or Dr. Funkenstein as they call i. It’s well thought out party music that’s fun, strange, and tries to loosely follow a story about alien clones. Who could ask for more"

Funkenstein" is a song by the funk band Parliament. It was the second single released from their 1976 album, The Clones of Dr. Funkenstein. It reached number 46 on the Billboard Hot Soul Singles chart. Funkenstein was one of George Clinton's many alter egos in the P-Funk mythology. A live cover of the song was performed by the Red Hot Chili Peppers in the late eighties and appears on the 1998 compilation, Under the Covers: Essential Red Hot Chili Peppers

Exclusive discount for Prime members. Sample this album Artist (Sample). The trombome solo by Wesley on Dr. Funkenstein drives the pure funk. Children of Productions is the cornerstone to the story: We're a flawless testimony. To the attainment of the P-Funk. Endowed with conceivement of true groove. We are deeper than abortion. Deeper than the notion.

SUMMER of FUNK Dr. Funkenstein ~ Parliament - from The Clones of Dr. Funkenstein (1976). Woah, they say the bigger the headache, the bigger the pill, baby. Call me the big pill, Dr. The disco fiend with the monster sound. The grove ghoul with the bump transplant. Cut during an especially prolific period for the P-Funk Organization, Collins records the Rubber Band’s second album after also working on Parliament’s The Clones Of Dr. Funkenstein and Funkadelic’s Warner Bros debut Hardcore Jollies. Aided and abetted by partner in crime George Clinton, Bootsy’s sophomore effort features more deeply funky grooves tempered with Collins’ wild and imaginative sense of humor.
