 CK: Don't forget my personal favorite P.Funk cover of all time, the Jackson
 5 doing "I Bet You" on their second album, ABC.  It's actually as good as
 the two versions George recorded.  They included it in one sequence on their
 animated series (I have it on video) and it has lots of psychedelic 
 animations swimming around their heads.

 RC: "I'll Bet You" (different from the title on the Funkadelic album) also
 shows up on _Diana Ross Presents the Jackson 5/ABC_, Motown 8119.

 CT: Stevie Ray Vaughn also performs "Testify" on his MTV Unplugged

 PJ: Thomas Dolby: _Aliens Ate My Buick_ (1988/EMI Manhattan) - cover 
 version of George Clinton song "Hot Sauce" (was originally planned for 
 Clinton's Some Of My Best Jokes Are Friends and was part of early 
 advance tapes of that album).

 PJ: Masquerade: One Nation (Street Mix) / One Nation (Extended Groove) /
 One Nation (Horny Alternatives) (1985/Streetwave/Polydor) - 3 versions 
 of P.Funk cover versions, incl. 'One Nation Under A Groove', 'Flash Light',
 'Tear The Roof Off The Sucker' + '(Not Just) Knee Deep'.

 JD: "Super Stupid" features Doug Wimbish on bass. 

 MW: The Sequence song is a 12" single cover of "Give Up the Funk." 	

 CK: _Farewell My Summer Love 1984_ was an album released in that year
 by Motown to milk the success of Michael Jackson.  It's a collection of
 Jackson songs that were considered too weak to issue in the early 70's
 (and considering "Ben" was one of his better songs, try to imagine his
 outtakes...).  Included in it is a forgettable song called "Touch The 
 One You Love."  Info is as follows:
  Touch The One You Love (Artie Wayne, George Clinton)  
 WB Music Corps & Brown's-Mill Music (ASCAP)/Warner-Tamerlane Pub. Corp. (BMI)
 Recorded 6/14/73.
  My guess is this one of the songs GC wrote for Motown in the 60's which
 ended up in the vault.  They must have hauled it out for MJ to record in
 '73 before vaulting it again.
 RC: Along the same lines, MJ also covered another Motown-written Clinton
 song, "Little Christmas Tree".  Not sure where or when (or even if) that
 one was released. 

 DM: The Maggotron cover of "Cosmic Slop", featured as a non-LP bonus
 track, is actually titled "Cosmic Bass", but it is a cover version of
 "Cosmic Slop", right down to the writing credits: G. Clinton and B. Worrell.
 It's nine minutes long and yes, it sucks.

 Other Covers-Related Comments:

 DF: Dr.Dre's "The Roach" is so close to the original P.Funk [Wants to Get
 Funked Up] that IMO it goes beyond being considered a sample...the music
 is exactly the same and the vocals, while with different lyrics, are
 delivered w/ the same "intonation".

 JB: Snoop Doggy Dogg does a bit about a radio station called WBALLS that
 uses the Flashlight melody.  It's not a sample and not really a cover
 though.  I don't know where/if you'd list it.

 MB: Derek Martin's "Soul Power" on a Detroit label called Tuba (the 
 single was later picked up by Stax) borrows so heavily from "Testify"
 that it deserves a footnote.

 RC: Earth, Wind & Fire also covered "Open Our Eyes", a song that Funkadelic
 recorded in 1969.  However, it was not originally performed by Funkadelic.
 EWF's version appeared on the album of the same name, in 1974, on Columbia
 KC 32712.

	*********The P.Funk Bibliography*********

  RC:   The bibliography gives a listing of a smattering of places
        where people have written about the Funk Mob over the years.
        It's organized in five sections: newspapers, reviews, magazines, 
        books, and other miscellaneous sources.  Most of the books are
	album-review reference sources; I've yet to see a book totally
	devoted to P.Funk.  Each section is organized chronologically.
  	Special props to Edward Friedman, who provided much of this info.
          Whenever possible, the entries are annotated.  Extra-special
	shout-out to Melissa Weber for her efforts here.  Length of
 	article is divided into four categories: full-length, long, 
	medium, and short.

opening set, the comedy set from "a gangly young black comic" (probably 
James Wesley Jackson, the Funkamedian), and the P-Funk performance.  1
