“Up For The Down Stroke” by Parliament - album review

features in: Album Chart of 1974Album Chart of the Decade: 1970s

TJR says

It took 4 years for George Clinton's Parliament to follow up their “Osmium” LP of 1970, the main man having been more concerned with his Funkadelic project. He seems to have a bit of a focus on what each group should be; Funkadelic tougher edged psyche-funk, Parliament smoother-edged soul-funk. Since the 1970 debut, there have been many changes, with Bernie Worrell (arrangements, keyboards), Bootsy Collins (bass, guitar, drums) and Garry Shider (guitar, vocals) being 3 of key note. Augmenting the big production are The Horny Horns, recruited from James Brown's band. Was it worth the wait? Not for me, title-track excepted.
