A huge funk picture scroll with great guests! A masterpiece!
The power of The One pulls us together. Everyone has The One within them. You never know who is using you for guidance. So always be pure and don't fake the funk. Everyone has a light. Everyone needs to shine. It's there. You have to trust and use the guidance that is within you and understand that The One knows your programme. It was written in your mind before you made the mad dash to be first to the egg! You are perfect in the eyes of The One."（Bootsy Collins）
Bootsy Collins' latest album, The Power of One, produced, written and arranged by Bootsy Collins, began production before the pandemic and was completed at his own Bootsy La Studio in Cincinnati during the lockdown. 'It's during tragedies and storms like this that the most beautiful messages are born,' says Bootsy. 'And it reminds us that we can't do anything on our own. We need each other. It's One Nation Under the Groove'.
From the title track with George Benson, it's been a blast! Slow funk 'Creepin'' featuring the future of the blues - Christone "Kingfish" Ingram, and the Sly & The Family Stone classic 'If You' with Larry Graham. WantMe2Stay', a cover of Sly & The Family Stone's classic 'Want Me To Stay', also top notch! A funk album with the Bootsy stamp all over it! The best since 2000?
