Kali Uchis feat. Tyler, The Creator, Bootsy Collins – After the Storm (2018)

YouTubeAmazoniTunes – No Discogs

Kali Uchis has been a familiar voice alongside the likes of Miguel, Daniel Caesar and Snoop Dogg. Some of her celebrated friends have been returning the favour. ‘After the Storm’ features Tyler, The Creator and Bootsy Collins. The result is a type of spacey R&B jam that Kevin Parker might have created if he’d had anything to do with the production. Have a great weekend.

Parliament – Flash Light (1977)

YouTubeAmazoniTunesDiscogs

In 1977, the Parliament ‎entourage released a long player called Funkentelechy Vs. The Placebo Syndrome. Yes, that’s right. Written by George Clinton, Bernie Worrell and Bootsy Collins, the simply named ‘Flash Light’ closes the album on a momentous high; all channelled through Worrell’s killer synth-bassline and Clinton’s otherwordly vocals.

Jeannie Reynolds – The Fruit Song (1976)

Jeannie Reynolds

In truth, I had trouble mixing comedy and music last week – awkward bedfellows. However, it was foolish of me to overlook disco. And so, before I leave the humour, I feel duty bound to feature this Chicago steppers classic by Jeannie Reynolds. ‘The Fruit Song’  is from her 1976 Casablanca release Cherries, Bananas & Other Fine Things. “You didn’t know I liked bananas?” Jeannie coos. “They’re so good to munch.” The more-than-suggestive lyrics are played out to a rolling disco rhythm provided by funk superstar Bootsy Collins.
