Clones Of Dr. Funkenstein
Label: Mercury Records
What to do after the platinum Mothership Connection? As the tipping point to more P-Funk errata, The Clones of Dr. Funkenstein introduces disco boogie with the jaunty opening notes of "Do That Stuff" and the stride-piano rhythm above "Getten' to Know You." "We love to funk you Funkenstein, your funk is the best," shout the "Afro-nauts" over the pimp-strolling groove of "Dr. Funkenstein." Inspiration dissipates by the time "I've Been Watching You" and "Funkin' for Fun" meander into earshot, but we're satiated by the knowledge that "funk is its own reward."
