Funk or Walk

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Alex Henderson
Much like Prince in the 1980s, George Clinton had a long list of disciples in the late '70s. Clinton's p-funk empire wasn't only Parliament/Funkadelic, it also included Bootsy's Rubber Band, Fred Wesley & the Horny Horns, and two female groups: Parlet and the Brides of Funkenstein.

But the record is surprisingly diverse, and Clinton keeps things unpredictable. "Birdie," "Amorous," and the infectious opener "Disco to Go" which Clinton wrote and produced with Bootsy Collins are all very Parliament-like, but the jazz-influenced "Nappy" isn't unlike something Dr. Buzzard's Original Savannah Band would have done. The melancholy "Just Like You" is a conventional soul ballad, and the glossy "When You're Gone" would have been appropriate for a Silver Convention album. On Funk or Walk, the Brides' two-woman lineup consists of Dawn Silva and Lynn Mabry, both demonstrating that they have no problem handling the variety of things that Clinton sends their way.
