Funkentelechy vs. the Placebo Syndrome is a funk album by Parliament, released in 1977 (see 1977 in music). It is a loose concept album warning the listener of falling into the "Placebo Syndrome," which according to George Clinton is consumerism, and listening to disco music, which he saw as a simplification of funk music in attempt to gain commercial success.

The album is considered to be one of the best in Parliament’s catalog. Funkentelechy vs. the Placebo Syndrome Q&A. Producers George Clinton. Writers Bernie Worrell, Billy Nelson, Bootsy Collins & 4 more. Bass Cordell Boogie Mosson. Drums and Percussion Bootsy Collins. Guitars Catfish Collins.

Released: Nov 28, 1977. 20th Century Masters - The Millennium Collection: The Best of Parliament. Clones Of Dr. Funkenstein.

His lead vocal is both playful and passionate: Otis Redding as gunslinger philosopher. While Funkentelechy is no exception. Clinton’s production work here is atypically light and clear. Michael Hampton’s expert guitar solos quiver starkly in the mix, and Clinton even strives to make his own lyrics intelligible - not coherent maybe, but intelligible.

Label variant and Keel Mfg. Corp. pressing, which can be identified via the stamped 'union jack' symbol and the etched 'K' in runout etchings. Should include the following: A two page (eight sided) stapled illustrated Cartoon Pack. A very large folded one sided poster. A Casablanca inner sleeve.

Taken at face value, "Funkentelechy vs. the Placebo Syndrome" wants you to dance with your heart rather than with your image, and provides the perfect dance floor on which to distill the two. Yet there's a more spiritual vibe underneath throughout the work of Funkadelic, of Parliament, of George Clinton and of all their splinters - much like France's Magma, the space opera trappings conceal a much more earnest message to the listener, a spiritual and uplifting vibe meant to inspire brotherhood and aspiration.
