Bootsy? Player of the Year is the third album by the American funk band Bootsy’s Rubber Band.
The album was released on Warner Bros. Records on January 27, 1978. At the height of the album’s popularity, it competed head to head with Bootsy Collins’ mentor George Clinton and his band Parliament, who had released the album Funkentelechy Vs. the Placebo Syndrome just two months earlier.
Bootsy? Player of the Year featured two hit singles, “Bootzilla”, which went to number one on the Billboard Hot Soul Singles charts, and “Hollywood Squares”. The album peaked at number one on the Billboard Soul Album charts. The original vinyl version of the album contained a pair of cut out star shaped eyeglasses. It probably stands as the band’s most successful album to date. The album introduces Collins’ roles as Bootzilla and The Player.
The album was produced by George Clinton and Bootsy Collins and arranged by “THE PLAYER”. The album was reissued in 1990 by Warner/Pioneer of Japan (now Warner Music-Japan), then through WEA International in the mid-1990s and then by Time/Warner in the U.S. in April 1998.
