This is one of the most delightfully stupid recordings of all time. Funky and foolish! George Clinton (fool master George, as I call him) goes wild in a satire of the VERY sad state of R&B in the 80s, the days when synthesizer bangers stole the soul. Lots of Pedro Bell's cartoon madness on the cover.
But the songs are even wilder than before (and for Clinton and co., that is saying a lot!). "Hey Good Lookin'" retunred Vanessa Williams to prominence with her vocals on this one. "Do Fries Go With That Shake" ROCKED the summer of 1986, adding a much needed shot in the arm to Soul radio stations of the time. But my favorite here is the incredibly (intentionally)ridiculous "Mixmaster Suite." My friends and I at the University of South Carolina would HOWL at this one! Clinton truly let the jackasses out of the gate to hee haw in the recording studio and unlike much of the mechanical mess that passed for R&B at the time (which the tune satirizes), this is (intentionally) so bad that you will pound the floor in laughter at this one! Ya gotta love it! Get it and you'll see what I mean!
