George Clinton Gets His Masters

According to, George Clinton has won back the master recordings for four of his records:

In a ruling Thursday, June 2, 2005, District Court Judge Manuel L. Real returned to George Clinton possession of four master recordings. Recorded by Clinton under the Funkadelic name in the late 70's, the respected musician now has sole possession of "Hardcore Jollies," "One Nation Under A Groove," "Uncle Jam Wants You" and "The Electric Spanking of War Babies." Judge Real remarked that Clinton had been defrauded of his creative works by the complicity of former employees, a member of his former management team and his lawyers.
I'm glad he wasn't defrauded by the guy who wore the diapers on stage. I don't think I could have taken that.
