|BOOTSY'S RUBBER BAND BOOTSY? PLAYER OF THE YEAR Limited Gatefold 180gram Audiophile Vinyl LP
Bootsy? Player of the Year (1978) by Bootsy's Rubber Band featured two hit singles, "Bootzilla", which went to number one on the Billboard Hot Soul Singles charts, and "Hollywood Squares". The album itself peaked at number one on the Billboard Soul Album charts.
This album finds Bootsy at his peak. There isn't a dull moment on Bootsy? Player of the Year. Take for instance, "Hollywood Squares" is a song that teeters somewhere between a dance song and a ballad, sometimes picking up the pace, other times slowing it down to a strut.
Bootsy? Player of the Year is one of the most enjoyable P-Funk albums ever. However, by the following year, 1979, it was clear that the P-Funk army was running out of fresh ideas, and Bootsy was no exception. This makes the album even more special in retrospect, because it was among the last of the great P-Funk releases.
