Hello,

Bootsy Collins - The Power of the One. Bootsy's latest is really good. He's doing more George Clinton-ish stuff than George Clinton. It's a good album to bop/nod your head to or walk around with a funky step.

That's interesting, I'll have to check this out. Everything after "Player of the Year" was not so good in my book.
WWK: I feel confident we haven't heard the last from Dr. Harvey Camel.

Karen O and Willie Nelson covering "Under Pressure." I think this is well done. It's not trying to duplicate Mercury's vocal acrobatics impact, but really highlights the great melodies.
I'm only an occasional YYYs fan and I don't know if Karen O has ever mentioned Willie Nelson before so they're an unexpected duo for me. Probably wouldn't have picked this song for them so I'm glad I'm not involved in any decision making because I like it a lot.

Ha, I totally agree.
Look, you have to establish context for these things. And I maintain that unless you appreciate the Fall of Constantinople, the Great Fire of London, and Mickey Mantle's fatalist alcoholism, live Freddy makes no sense. If you want to half-ass it, fine, go call Simon Schama to do the appendix.

Abandoning their heretofore punk career, Vic Godard redirects the Subway Sect into Cole Porter territory on Songs for Sale. The album is named after the Porter standard "Love for Sale", which is included as the only non-original composition. Godard fashions sweet, carefree pop tunes with such aplomb that "Love for Sale" could almost be mistaken for another original creation. Finger-snapping, piano-dominated lounge music provides an excellent backdrop for Godard's romantic crooning, especially on innocent love songs like "What's Your Name", "Just in Time", and "Hey Now (I'm in Love).

Just reissued on Bandcamp. Good fun!

Looks interesting.
There's a tiny, tiny hopeful part of me that says you guys are running a Kaufmanesque long con on the board

Possibly my favourite compilation ever and especially this one, in the top 20 easily for me.
