All Music Guide - Jason Birchmeier
The only officially released in-concert Parliament-Funkadelic album, Live: P-Funk Earth Tour captures George Clinton and company at their peak in 1977, compiling recordings of a couple shows January 19 at the Los Angeles Forum and January 21 at the Oakland Coliseum. The double-LP/single-CD album can't do justice to the group's extravagant theatrics, most memorably the landing of the mothership, but it's a wonderful showcase for their musical ability and their catalog of great songs, most of which come from the 1976 albums Mothership Connection and The Clones of Dr. Funkenstein.

No performance was ever the same for these guys, and that's a major aspect of this album's entertainment value, for it's interesting to compare these live performances to their studio counterparts. Of particular note are the 15-minute extended performance of "Dr. Funkenstein" and the three-minute montage "Landing Of the Holy Mothership." Though unessential, Live: P-Funk Earth Tour is worth investigating for anyone curious about the Parliament-Funkadelic live experience and is a welcome alternative to the many bootlegs and latter-day P-Funk All Stars live recordings that have circulated over the years.

    Parliament Live . P-Funk Earth Tour

    Parliament Live is thee best Album that Parliament/ Funkadelic has made. I bought the record back in @1977. An still have it today. Nothing beats vinyl records.
    I'm old school when comes to records. Its mi hobby. But, the records from @1974- @1980 for Parliament its the bomb yo. Don't forget the other groups that helped Parliament throught the years and still going.
    Bootsy Rubber Band, Parlet , Brides of Funkenstein , Funkadelic , Sweat Band , any many others. Mi prop to George Clinton an too Parliament / Funkadelic. May the funk be wit you alwayz. Peace out !!

    Juju.
