Description
 

A slab of Cincinnati hard funk slammers - most reissued (legally) for the first time! Post JB's / Pre-P-funk outfits headed up by brothers Catfish & Bootsy Collins along with a Cincinnati who-who's of top club players who could turn it out night after night after night in places like The Psychedelic Grave or The Round Up Club.

This selection, hand picked by Bootsy, highlights that youthful output under various names as the House Guests, The Complete Strangers & Bootsy, Phelps & Gary - the monikers may have changed but the but what never did was bringing it to the stage every night & leaving the club devastated.
All tracks remastered from the original master tapes.

When James Brown wanted them, they were called the Pacemakers; when Brown employed them on some of his most important and influential hits, they were known as the Original JB’s; and when the Motor City visionary George Clinton recruited them, they came to be known as Funkadelic. Later, they developed a groundbreaking school of psychedelic space-funk as the Complete Strangers and, finally, Bootsy’s Rubber Band.

The House Guests are an invaluable if unsung piece of that history—“the link,” drummer Frankie “Kash” Waddy says, “between the Original James Brown JB’s and Funkadelic.”
