An extraordinary three page handwritten letter from funk legend Bootsy Collins to an executive of Warner Bros Records with incredible content. Bootsy, on his great Bootzilla Productions letterhead, writes about a possibly Greatest Hits album for Warner Brothers, mentioning speaking about it with directors The Hudlin Brothers (who were going to film a Mothership Connection feature that never was made), his appearance in the never-made film, possible re-recordings for a hits album, the fact that he could get Shock G of Digital Underground or the The Jungle Brothers to to appear on new tracks, recording a song for an upcoming album with Les Paul, possible songs for the hits album, and best of all, the third page notes “P.F. Oh heah, I’m also talking to the Godfather of Soul James Brown about touring this summer…We are discussing putting all of the remaining JB’s back together. The Originals: Fred Wesley, Maceo, Catfish, St. Clair, Jabo, Clyde Stubblefield, Myself, Pee Wee Ellis, Bobby Byrd, Vicky Anderson, Marva Whitney, Hank Ballard and The King Himself. What a show Huh!!!”
Unfortunately none of the things Bootsy wrote about came to pass–the film, the hits album, or the JBs tour.
It’s almost certain this letter was written circa 1990 as it references collaborations with Shock G, The Jungle Brothers and Les Paul, whick date from approximately that time.
A great Bootsy/P-Funk collectible, with Recordmecca’s written lifetime guarantee of authenticity.
