This was almost going to be a Daily Funk by itself but I figured I’d share the whole album. A few days ago, I was messing around looking for something else & stumbled upon this one. It’s one of those that’s been shared & heard by most, but still worth re-sharing in case somebody’s missed it during their musical e-travels.

At sixteen, the world is an oyster. And for Bernard Wright, he managed to find, polish & bless the world with a pearl of a debut album in 1981. Don’t judge it by the cover; just grab it & listen if you aren’t familiar. A majority of G-Funk finds its origins & influences in young Bernard’s album.
