What’s Bootsy Doin?
Bootsy Collins. As a bassist, singer and songwriter, he has long since passed into legend. A man who made his name by performing with the indomitable JamesBrown in the early 1970s, before becoming part of the immortal Parliament and Funkadelic later the same decade. He’s a rock star in every sense. His sense of humour and driving way of playing was matched by a flamboyant sense of dress.His 1988 What sBootsy Doin ? album saw him back in the groove with old P-Funk buddies George Clinton, Bernie Worrall, Fred Wesley and Gary 'Mudbone' Cooper. After a recording absence of six years, Collins slips right into gear, working with a huge ensemble that of course featured some of his own alter egos. It appeared that little had changed for the man, In that everything that had happened in the funk world while he'd been in semiretirement was ignored, as Collins set out to prove his weird approach to mixing funk, rock and pop was still as potent as ever.The bizarre clash of styles that had made Collins such a style icon in the previous decade is still obvious, and at its best 'What’s Bootsy Doin'?' is just glorious, Check out 'Party On Plastic' and 'Love Song' this is where the man scores highly and often, never standing still long enough for you to second guess him.

Psychedelic India

If the Sixties was the period when the West's fascination with Indian music and culture blossomed to its fullest extent, then the seeds of that fascination were planted in the previous decade with the release - in both Britain and the United States - of the formative albums by the great emissaries of Indian music, Ali Akbar Khan and Ravi Shankar. Ali Akbar Khan was, and remains, the master of the sarod a 25- stringed instrument of the lute family who, beginning at the age of three, was taught by his father over a period of some 20 years. Among his father s fellow students at one point was the 18-yearold sitar player Ravi Shankar, with whom Ali Akbar came to share a lifelong devotion to teaching and performance around the world, even into his eighties.

As young men, the two learned together like brothers, inspiring each other to greater heights, the celebration of which manifests itself in such jugalbandis (musical duos) as the electrifying performances that are the centrepiece of this edition. Hindustani classical singer Ustad Amir Khan was one of the greatest musicians India has produced. His sublime Raga Marwa (featured here) was described by Ravi Shankar as one of the four or five immortal recordings of the entire world. Half a century has elapsed since these recordings were made, yet the passage of time has done nothing to dim their transcendent beauty. You won t encounter the formal trappings of Western psychedelia but this is music that will transport and elevate and enrich the listener.
