Bootsy Collins has rightfully received accolades as funk's second officer (after George Clinton -- and it should be third after James Brown and Clinton). For decades he has been sampled by nearly every rapper, and virtually created the bass sound that made the Red Hot Chili Peppers a household name and that created a career for Les Claypool. Yet, his most influential sound emanated not from his tenure with James Brown or P-Funk, but his own Rubber Band, and for years that wooly, wild, and surreal unit had never been properly anthologized. Rhino, in their usual thorough, crazy fashion, directed the folks at the Warner archives and created a massive, drop-the-bomb two-disc set that sets the record straight. This may not be no disco but it sho' 'nuff is some mean foolin' around. Sorry. Got carried away. This collection is every bit as necessary as the Funkadelic singles compilation, Parliament's Chronicles and First Thangs collection, and the James Brown 20 Greatest Hits comp. This is the sh*t that got kickin' and keeps on tickin' over 30 years after the original bomb was dropped.
