It's all about the "Love" Sept. 21 2008
By B. Bankson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This review stems from the Love of classic P-Funk, George, Parliament, Funkadelic whatever. I.E., I'm a funkateer from way back. First of all, this album is not a Funk affair. This is about paying homage to the art of the original Slow Jamz. From the 50's to the present. Don't fret, it still has some of that freaky unpredictable weirdness that permeates the best of the P-Funk output. Keep in mind , GC has been around awhile and time has taken it's toll on his voice. This is not 1978. That said, this is still fun stuff. Very forward thinking without pandering too much. Good stuff. Go ahead George! Check it out.

The Well Has Run Dry Nov. 12 2008
By Lee Blair - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I have enjoyed over 30 years of George Clinton through most of his incarnations. Parliament, Funkadelic, on his own or with the P-Funk All Stars, Clinton has given his listeners much to savor and commend. "George Clinton and His Gangsters of Love" is not one of those efforts. On first listen this collection sounds like tracks that were rejected from other works. After listening to this twice it becomes clear these tracks would never have been made and rejected from any of his previous collections. I can barely recommend a track, even though "Gypsy Woman" has Carlos Santana on it.

It's hard to pan new work from an icon in the music business, but in this case, it's inevitable. Everything here seems done on auto-pilot, and since Clinton's charm revolves around improvisation, this lackluster effort cannot be touted. I am sorry I bought this CD, and I am sure most diehard P-Funksters would be disappointed. If you never listened to George Clinton or any of his groups and chose this collection to check him out, you would be making a huge mistake. Listen to "(Not Just) Knee Deep" and revel in the flavor of Funk.

Love it! Jan. 16 2009
By Vspen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I love, love this project! George Clinton's decision to include Kim Burrell and El DeBarge was a very good one. I've heard Kim recently on Harry Connick's latest CD..... Kim Burrell's jazz/gospel scats and riffs are wonderful!!

Very Good Feb. 27 2009

When I first saw the cd cover I was very apprehensive about getting the cd. I am so glad I did. I enjoyed the Gangsters of Love. I love the covers selected and the duet with Kim Burrell was excellent. If you have an eclectic taste in music you'll really enjoy this cd.
