Funk, Funk, Funk

Some fun, “Fonky” eight tracks in the Cloud 8 archives.20130113-144915.jpg

“Live at the Garden”, this 12 track vinyl is a great dance compilation featuring James Brown & The Famous Flames,with hits like “Night Train” and “Hold It”.  Other noteables include The Wobblers, Herb Hardesty, Henry Moore, Clifford Scott, and Hank Marr.20130113-144924.jpg

Released in 1978 on Warner Bros., Funkadelic’s,  ”One Nation Under A Groove”.  The inside sleeve artwork is as entertaining as the record itself, including comedic rants like, The Funkadelic DooDoo Awards: “George Puke, Rolling Drones, Donna Bummer, Backstab Dismanagement, Ted Nuisance, Pee Gees, Poot & Fire and those responsible for “Thank Dogs, Its Friday”.20130113-144930.jpg

Its Ken Nordine! Instead of giving my two cents…I’ll just quote Ken on himself.  ”Imagine the imagination as a jazz instrument wailing words, verbal riffs that swing from images to ideas to images……It’s also out loud daydreaming that may be of interest to psychiatrists, amateur, or otherwise…..”20130113-144936.jpg

Muddy Evening Heads from Cloud 8

DJ copy, postwar blues vinyl by Chess records with Elmore James and John Brim.  Deep, emotional lyrics from Elmore with relaxed rhythms from Brim.  Chess records insert included with vinyl. 20130107-160953.jpg

If you love King Crimson, you need this 5 track vinyl with Robert Fripp on guitar and Brian Eno on synth.  Released in 1975, the cover is a reproduction of a painting by Peter Schmidt titled, (no surprise here) Evening Star.20130107-161000.jpg

David Byrne direced and wrote the movie, True Stories.   While this is not the actual soundtrack to the movie, (in which most of the songs are sung by the actors), this album contains Talking Heads’ versions of the songs from the film.  Released in 1986.  20130107-161010.jpg
