IT WAS ON THIS DATE OCT 22, 1991 DEL THE FUNKY HOMOSAPIEN RELEASED HIS DEBUT SOLO STUDIO ALBUM I WISH MY BROTHER GEORGE WAS HERE

I Wish My Brother George Was Here is the debut solo studio album by American hip hop musician Del the Funky Homosapien. It was released by Elektra Records in 1991. It peaked at number 24 on the Billboard Heatseekers Albums chart, as well as number 48 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart.

It has been incorrectly assumed that the title of the album is a reference to George Clinton.[1] The title actually refers to a quote from a Looney Tunes short film, which is in turn a reference to Liberace’s catchphrase, which he would say on his television show whenever his brother George did not appear.

Fred Thomas of AllMusic gave the album 4.5 stars out of 5, saying, “[Del has] clearly been writing his own rules since the beginning, and the lucid dreaming and everyday observations of I Wish My Brother George Was Here are the first and some of the best examples of this, and how wonderful the results can be.”
