POP MUSIC George Clinton Throughout the '70s, George Clinton was the spearhead of the huge Parliament-Funkadelic collective, which also spun off other groups, including the Brides of Funkenstein and Parlet. But Clinton, the eccentric chieftain, was the anchor of it all. His free-style funk infused elements of jazz and acid rock and helped set the stage for numerous hip-hop acts and bands such as the Red Hot Chili Peppers. George Clinton & Parliament Funkadelic perform at 9 p.m. Saturday at Rams Head Live, 20 Market Place.

As far as George Clinton is concerned, playing the Lollapalooza festival is simply a matter of adjusting.On the one hand, he and his P-Funk All Stars have adjusted their approach to fit the 45- to 50-minute time slot the festival allows them. "We just have to re-relate to back in the day when there were like 20 groups on the shows at the Apollo," he says, over the phone from a tour stop in Pittsburgh. "As opposed to the way we've been for the last 15 years, having the whole three-and-a-half to four hours to ourselves."

Make no mistake: When the history of our age is finally written, people will speak with awe and admiration of the Clinton Era. It's almost inevitable, really. Because beyond the expected hero worship -- the plaudits to Clinton's imagination, innovation and initiative -- it will be impossible not to acknowledge the extent to in which the Clintonian vision will have shaped the world of the future.What? No, no, not Bill and Hillary. We're talking about George Clinton.Don't worry -- it's a common mistake.

You've really got to admire Bill Clinton for rushing to appoint his Cabinet before Christmas.I do?Yes, it shows a commitment to, uhm, something or other.Yeah, it shows a commitment to giving the press something to write about at a time of year when depression, shopping and don't-eat-the-mistletoe are our usual subjects.Picking a Cabinet is important!Not really. It's an inside-the-beltway story. Because unless they really screw up or get indicted, it doesn't really matter much who is in the Cabinet.

LL Cool JAll World (Def Jam 314 534 125)Hip-hop hasn't produced all that many greatest hits collections, in large part because few rap acts last long enough to generate an album's worth of hits. LL Cool J, though, has not only endured but grown in the 12 years since "I Need a Beat" put the then-16-year-old rapper on the map. But what makes "All World" remarkable isn't the incredible consistency of his output over the years so much as the way he has been able to maintain such a recognizable presence even as his sound changed.

George Clinton and the P-Funk AllstarsT.A.P.O.A.F.O.M. (550 Music/Epic 67144)It's one of the great ironies of modern funk that even as hip-hop auteurs like Ice Cube, Dr. Dre and Warren G crib from the '70s sound of George Clinton's Parliament and Funkadelic, Clinton and the current set of P-Funk Allstars are perfecting an entirely new strain of funk. That's why the pulse that powers "T.A.P.O.A.F.O.M." sounds little like the music Cube and Dre make; Clinton and his crew are much more interested in computerized rhythms and high-tech grooves than their young disciples.
