Well, in 1975 Westbound signed up producers Dennis Coffey and Mike Theodore, both of whom knew something was going on in the clubs of New York. When they presented their new project . It was this work that drew Coffey and Theodore’s attention. Mike Theodore soon grew so confident in the genre that he mixed all the music on his High On Mad Mountain album, including the title track which was given a 12-inch release, while others such as Eramus Hall and the Crowd Pleasers didn’t feel the need for a remix – they just worked. By the end of the decade the disco bubble had burst.

Title: Westbound Super Breaks. Record Label: westbound records. VARIOUS - Super Breaks Volume 3: Essential Funk Soul & Jazz Samples & Breakbeats.

The P-Funk story began in 1956 in Plainfield, New Jersey, with a doo-wop group formed by fifteen-year-old George Clinton. This was The Parliaments, a name inspired by Parliament cigarettes. By the early 1960s, the group had solidified into the five-man lineup of Clinton, Ray "Stingray" Davis, Clarence "Fuzzy" Haskins, Calvin Simon and Grady Thomas. The debut album Funkadelic was released in 1970. Meanwhile, Clinton regained the rights to the name "The Parliaments" and initiated another new entity, now known as Parliament, with the same five singers and five musicians but this time as a smoother R&B-based funk ensemble that Clinton positioned as a counterpoint to the more rock-oriented Funkadelic.
