"Mothership" is a funk masterpiece. You know what, just a music masterpiece. This album is "Thriller"-esque in that every song could've been the transcendent smash hit. That hit ended up being "Give Up The Funk (Tear The Roof Off The Sucker)," but it could've easily been "P-Funk (Wants To Get Funked Up)," "Mothership Connection (Star Child)," "Unfunky UFO" or "Handcuffs."
If I could go back in time to any event, it would be to a P-Funk Earth Tour show. George, Bernie, Bootsy, Junie, Eddie Hazel, Fred Wesley….. P-Funk is the greatest band ever assembled.
