Anyone here into funk ala Bootsy Collins or Parliament? If so, what are some of your favorites?

I have Stevie Wonder's Greatest Hits. He was known to get funky once in awhile. That's about as funky as I get.

Temptations, but more for their psychedelic soul music
Undisputed Truth for the same reason above - both bands had the same producer/songwriting team, Norman Whitfield/Strong, Whitfield, for a few albums.
James Brown - I have a best of
I REALLY dig Heatwave
Stevie Wonder
Earth Wind & Fire
Level 42

I have a funky bone in my body and I love a lot of 'funky' music without ever really delving into the genre big time but I like some James Brown, Stevie Wonder, Jamiroquai, Chic and lots of other funky disco and funky house, and most definitely............Prince!

Wasn't Extreme one of the early bands to mix metal with funk? I got their first album but haven't gotten around to listening to it yet.

I've really only went so far as to listen to Funkadelic, Parliament, and Sly & the Family Stone.

They didn't really have much "funk" on the first album. That one is pretty much straight-up Van Halen worship.

It was pretty prevalent on their second album ("Pornograffiti") though.
