Paris DJs Soundsystem presents 1978 - Standards, Versions & Revamps Vol.19





Damn things are not getting easier as I'm approaching the 1980s. In 1978 there's just SO MUCH of disco in the groovy records. There's also a vast amount of punk and pop/rock released of course, but that's not really what we're about in this series of mixes here. 1978 was not that bad a year, I could list many classic albums out by the likes of Frank Zappa, Elvis Costello, Bob Marley, Little Feat, The Band, Talking Heads, Rick James, Kraftwerk, Herbie Hancock, Chic, Devo, The Clash or even Sun Ra, for example, but the main event is clearly happening on the P-Funk side of things, with great LPs from Funkadelic, Parliament, Brides Of Funkenstein, Parlet , Bernie Worrell or Bootsy Collins, all released in 1978. You'll feel it in this selection of cool covers from the year, which includes P-Funk spin off act Parlet covering Parliament-Funkadelic vocalist Fuzzy Haskins' "Cookie Jar" (later recorded by Prince), R&B/soul group The Dells covering Parliament's "All Your Goodies Are Gone", and funk band Platinum Hook covering Funkadelic's "Standing On The Verge Of Getting It On". Definitively, 1978 was the year of the P!!
