Nice! Not heard that one before. A lot of p funk music for me still to discover. I’m mainly familiar with the first 5 or 6 funkadelic albums at the moment.

My favourite version of ‘Walk On By’. The arrangement and production on this is just incredible and the album that this is taken from, ‘Hot Buttered Soul’, is a psychedelic, cinematic masterpiece.

Chocolate City, Up for the Down Stroke and Mothership Connection are all great on the Parliament side

I know one of them became a bit of a Trump supporter but, Sam & Dave

Also at least 3 of that band are in The Blues Brothers.

The Donny Hathaway Live album is so so good. Back in the days when shops were open I was guaranteed to sell a copy every time I put it on
