This Boot is Made for Fonk-N is the fourth album by the American funk band Bootsy’s Rubber Band. It was released through Warner Bros. Records on June 1, 1979. Unlike previous albums by Bootsy’s Rubber Band, this album did not generate any hit singles. The album was more experimental in nature than previous efforts. It would also mark the last time that the name “Bootsy’s Rubber Band” would be used on a Bootsy Collins related project until the 1982 12″ single release “Body Slam”.

The album’s cover was drawn by P-Funk album artist Overton Loyd and included an 8-page comic book entitled “The Almost Finished Comic” also drawn by Loyd.

The album was produced by George Clinton and Bootsy Collins under the aliases Dr. Funkenstein and Starr-Mon. The album was reissued first in 1990 by the Warner/Pioneer company in Japan and then by Warner Music-Europe. In 2007, the album was licensed through Rhino Records and reissued through the Collectors Choice music service.

    MacDaddy – The remarkable thing is that both James Brown and Bootsy Collins have a mucisal pedigree that started here in Cincinnati OH area. In fact, Bootsy and his wife still live here. They are often spotted at Bengals’ games and such…
