Rock and roll hall of fame inductee, George Clinton, is best known for
his extensive body of work produced along-side band mates of Parliament and
Funkadelic who single handedly turned funk and R&B on its head during the
70’s and early 80’s.
In 1982 George Clinton released Computer Games on Capitol Records. While
technically his first solo album, Computer Games still featured the majority of
his band-mates from the now disbanded Parliament and Funkadelic, musicians and
singers such as Junie Morrison,
Bernie Worrell, Malia Franklin, Muruga Booker, Eddie Hazel, Gwendolyn Dozier
and of course the immensely talented Bootsy Collins and Maceo Parker.
Glenn Kenny of Trouser Press magazine the release of Computer Games was seen as
a "nod to the burgeoning wave of techno-funk that was beginning to overtake
almost every other form of dance music; rather than reject the new technology,
he adapted it here in his own unique way” helping return George Clinton to
popularity within the charts with LOOPZILLA soaring into the top 20 of the US
R&B charts and even more success with the release of ATOMIC DOG which would
climb all the way to #1 on the US R&B chart while narrowly missing out on a
top 100 spot on the US Pop chart.
awarded Computer Games a #97 spot on its list of best of the 80s while Computer
Games continues to inspire to this day with many tracks from the album being
sampled by multiple artist including Public Enemy, Snoop Doggy Dogg, Prince and
Ice Cube to name but a few.
BBR is very
proud to present this newly remastered, fully expanded edition of George
Clinton’s Computer Games.
