Parliament/Funkadelic: A Parliafunkadelicment Thang

John Abbey, Blues & Soul, May 1971

But the one exception in recent years is Funkadelic, an act comprising two acts – the vocal Parliaments and the instrumental Funkadelic – and one of the most entertaining units to make it over here in quite a while.
