Halloween
night, 1976, Houston: George Clinton and
Parliament-Funkadelic were in the house at the Summit venue, just about to tear the roof off
the sucka. We’re talking prime Mothership
Connection/Clones of Dr. Funkenstein
-era P-Funk w/GC, Bootsy, Bernie and
the crew giving up the funk.

 

Now
comes a 1 ½ hour DVD documenting the show, courtesy Shout Factory, which
advises us thusly: “The P-Funk collective were riding the success of their
first Top 5 R&B hit, “Give Up The Funk (Tear The Roof Off The Sucker),” a  track that had earned them the kind of radio
play that would bring the masses out to see them  live in a stadium-sized arena. The group was  only five dates into the tour when they
arrived in Houston,
but they were definitely ready to take it to the stage for an out-of-this-world
show like no other.”

 

You
betcha.

 

It’s
set to hit stores Nov. 18. Happy thanksgiving, y’all.
