Bootsy Collins

by Robert Christgau on January 15, 1977


BOOTSY COLLINS

“AHH … THE NAME IS BOOTSY, BABY!”

[Warner Bros., 1977]


Although Bootsy’s comic consciousness takes a certain toll in tightness and drive, this record does about 90 percent of what a good funk album does while offering priceless insight into obscene phone calls and cannabis cunnilingus. Free your ass and your mind can come along for a giggle.
