Re-recording: "Hot Fun In The Summertime" w/ Bootsy Collins

Bootsy's bass kills on this cut.  Larry we love ya but Bootsy definitely served noticed that Sly would have been successful with a Bootsy.  Ummmm.   But Bootsy aint no Larry.  Let's be clear about that.  But come on Larry, you know you have to give him props on his thumping here.  Bootsy went way down on the fret board WITH the mutron peddle.  I mean Larry your fuzz did the same thing back in the day (think "Sex Machine").

Sly's production genius is in clear view if you listen down into the mix of the music.  A close listen to his best stuff reveals his artistic genius.  Freddie Stone was one of Sly's master painters.  And Bootsy's vocals are nowhere near Larry's power.  Yet Bootsy raps, which puts the Woodstock Nation genre up to date.

You have to listen to this. It lets you know that when Sly is trying, can't nobody touch him.
