Parliament's Newburgh sessions

I must have overlooked this release. Some online surfing revealed that there is a vinyl version of this rehearsal from 1976. I'm sure the funkateers here know more about this! Looks like something worth getting...

This is a widely circulating P-Funk bootleg. It was recorded in Hangar E at Stewart Airfield in Newburgh, New York on September 26, 1976 during the rehearsals for the P-Funk Earth Tour.There are several CD and vinyl copies available.

Last year,a new Parliament Funkadelic bootleg appeared.It is mislabled as "Live....Madison Square Garden 1977".It's really just the Newburg Session.Available on CD and vinyl.

Just ordered it. Also on white vinyl, like the one posted by SoulAlive. It's on this Dutch record label:
www.funktothemaxrecords.com.
But strangely enough, it seems like you can't buy this album on their website.

What I always found significant about the recording is it’s the only live version I know of that includes one of my most fave songs Gettin To Know You. The way Boogie is popping the bass on that one is pure bottom.

That's one of the reasons I wanted to buy it. Gettin to Know You is a favourite of mine too. George and the boys are always funking so hard that you tend to forget that they also can write great pop/soul songs. I'm Never Gonna Tell It is another example of this. There's a dvd called Live In France 2005 that has a performance of this song with violinist Lili Haydn. Great stuff!

Man don’t you just love that extended jam on Never Gonna Tell It? Lili is the perfect collaborator on that and takes things to a whole nother level. I would love to see her back onstage with him before he sits down.

It's pretty fuckin' great especially because you don't really expect a violin on pop/soul music. Sly had Sid Page on his Small Talk album, Bob Dylan (another favourite of mine) had Scarlet Rivera on his Desire album, which included Hurricane. But still, a violin with a rock/funk band is unusual and it opens up your ears.

nod yeah,that's one of my favorite songs too.I don't think it was performed regularly on that 1976/77 tour,so it's nice to have a (very good) rehearsal version of it.

I'm only aware/in possession of the 1995 P-Vine release that (somewhat oddly) also contained 2 tracks from 1993. Has there been any official rerelease since?
