The Brides of Funkenstein. Featuring Jerry Jones, Bernie Worrell, Bruce Nazarian & 1 more. Produced by George Clinton. My granny had a saying: "Without humps, there would be no getting over. You pay for what you get, (Oooh) And hardly ever get what you pay for. (Never been to school) Life's full of ups and downs You got to find your own high ground Mother Wit is your connection. Oh) Use it for your protection. While you're in Brooklyn.
This time, the Brides were a trio instead of a duo. Dawn Silva was still on board, but Lynn Mabry was gone, and Silva's new allies were Sheila Horne and Jeannette McGruder. With the new lineup in place, the Brides delivered a sophomore effort that is as unpredictable as their first album, Funk or Walk. Smoke Signals" (which Clinton wrote and produced with Bootsy Collins) and "Party Up in Here" are very Parliament-like, which is to be expected. But "I'm Holding You Responsible" and the 15-minute title song find the Brides delivering.
