More From PFunk and Overton Loyd

Funkentelechy Vs. the Placebo Syndrome was released by Parliament in 1977. Beside being one of Parliament’s finest albums, it came with extras that would never be possible in a cassette or CD format.

Funkentelechy Vs. The Placebo Syndrome

Both the fold-out poster of Sir Nose D’Voidoffunk and the included comic were illustrated by Overton Loyd.

Loyd is best known for creating the cover art for Motor Booty Affair, which was released the following year.

Billboard Magazine recognized Loyd for “Best Use of Computer Graphics” back in ’82 for the video effects in George Clinton’s “Atomic Dog.”

Funkentelechy was one of the first three Parliament records I bought, and has always remained a favorite.

And during my last trip to Rochester I replaced my copy of the live P.Funk Earth Tour LP with a copy that still had the poster of Dr. Funkenstein inside.

In my next post I’ll feature my favorite PFunk artist – Pedro Bell.
