Greatest Hits [Capitol]

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - David Sprague
Like a three day old batch of collard greens, funk music gets more potent with age. And nobody's been churning out funk longer and stronger than the captain of the Mothership, George Clinton. This 12-cut compilation picks up the Clinton saga with one of its best-known chapters, the 1982 dance-floor smash "Atomic Dog," then twists and turns through the Funkadelic and Parliament front-man's more recent forays into hip-hop "Dog Talk" and more traditional R&B the swinging "Cool Joe". Although the emphasis is predictably on solo hits such as the bouncy "Do Fries Go with That Shake?" and the danceable "Loopzilla," there are a few surprises in store. Most notably, this ...

Most notably, this greatest hits package includes a live medley of "Let's Take It to the Stage" and "Do That Stuff," taken from a 1976 gig on the oft-praised Mothership tour. Beam us up, Bootsy!
All Music Guide - Alex Henderson
George Clinton's solo output of the 1980s and 1990s wasn't as consistent as his work with Parliament/Funkadelic in the 1970s -- nonetheless, the P-Funk innovator has had his share of inspired moments as a solo artist, and some of his best solo recordings are united on this collection. Released in 2000, Greatest Hits spans 1976-1986 and draws on such solo albums as Computer Games, You Shouldn't-Nuf Bit Fish, Some of My Best Jokes Are Friends, and R&B Skeletons in the Closet. The oldest recording is the bonus track, a live Parliament/Funkadelic medley of "Let's Take It to the Stage" and "Do That Stuff" from a 1976 Houston show; most of the selections, however, come from Clinton's Capitol solo albums of 1982-1986. Not surprisingly, the CD opens with "Atomic Dog," Clinton's best-known and most essential solo hit. And The Right Stuff's other choices are also wise ones, including "Do Fries Go With That Shake?," "Cool Joe," "Loopzilla," "Hey Good Lookin'," and the quirky rap item "Nubian Nut." Greatest Hits isn't the last word on George Clinton's solo career, but if you need a concise introduction to the funkmeister's Capitol efforts of the 1980s, it's the logical place to go.
