Capitol Records' 75th Anniversary Vinyl LP Reissue of 1982 Debut Solo Album!
Features Lenticular Cover!

Computer Games is the debut album by funk musician George Clinton, released by Capitol Records on November 5th, 1982. Though technically Clinton's first "solo" album, the record featured most of the same personnel who had appeared on recent albums by Parliament and Funkadelic, both formally disbanded by Clinton in 1981. Conceived in the aftermath of a period marked by financial and personal struggles for Clinton, "Computer Games" restored his popularity for a short time.

According to Glenn Kenny of Trouser Press, after the end of his Parliament-Funkadelic collective, Clinton's album was titled as a "nod to the burgeoning wave of techno-funk that was beginning to overtake almost every other form of dance music; rather than reject the new technology, he adapted it here in his own unique way." The single "Loopzilla" hit the Top 20 R&B charts, followed by "Atomic Dog" which reached #1 R&B but peaked at #101 on the pop chart. The album was listed by Slant Magazine at #97 on its list of "Best Albums of the 1980s."

"Clinton is clearly in the spotlight throughout Computer Games, and his vocal performances are as wacky and charming as ever...a tremendously successful rebirth." -Jason Birchmeier,
