Urban Dance Floor Guerillas (CD)P-Funk All-Stars
In terms of pure collective talent, Urban Dancefloor Guerillas, the 1983 debut recording of the P-Funk All-Stars, ranks amongst the most impressive album rosters ever assembled.
True to their name, the All-Stars were comprised mainly of alumni from George Clinton's two legendary groups, Parliament and Funkadelic, including Bootsy Collins, Garry Shider, Eddie Hazel and Walter “June” Morrison. Along with them, Clinton recruited the likes of Sly Stone, Bobby Womack, Maceo Parker and Fred Wesley for this sprawling, ambitious excursion into post-70s funk. “Copy Cat” serves as a worthy counterpart to “Atomic Dog,” with the familiar thick, drooping bass and layered orchestration, but Clinton and his crew also explore different
musical territory, as heard on the subterranean groove of “Hydraulic Pump” and funky doo-wop sway of “One of Those Summers.” Despite the large collection of musicians, the album plays with a cohesiveness and contagious energy indicative of a group that's been together for
years, and can be considered a true classic of the genre.
In continuing their ongoing series of high quality reissues, Get On Down is proud to present the definitive reissue of P-Funk All-Stars debut Urban Dancefloor Guerillas, with a new audio transfer from the original master tapes and packaged in a six-panel digipak. Also includes two bonus tracks, “Pumpin' It Up (Special Club Mix)” and an extended version of “Generator Pop” previously only found on the original 12” single.
