Ahh... The Name Is Bootsy, Baby! is a funk album by Bootsy Collins, released in 1977. It reached number one on Billboard magazine's Top R&B/Soul albums chart, the first P-Funk release to achieve this goal. The album was produced by George Clinton and William "Bootsy" Collins and arranged by Bootsy and Casper (names William Collins uses to refer to his various roles [http://www.funky-stuff.com/bootsy/inter_nft1.htm: New Funk Times' Collins interview] ).


Bootsy's second album is widely considered his best: the Motherpage and warr.org give it five-star ratings. Similar to most of Bootsy's other work, it is divided between dance tracks and slow jams. The song "The Pinocchio Theory" inspired the George Clinton creation Sir Nose D'voidoffunk (see P-Funk mythology: the song says if you fake the funk, your nose will grow, and Sir Nose fakes the funk).
