A Blow for Me, a Toot for You

A Blow for Me, A Toot for You is a 1977 album by funk musician Fred Wesley and the Horny Horns featuring Maceo Parker. The album contains heavy participation by the P-Funk musical collective, including Garry Shider, Michael Hampton, and Jerome Brailey. The album also contains the heavily sampled track "Four Play" which, due to its title, prevented the track from garnering airplay when it was released as a single.

The album was produced by George Clinton and Bootsy Collins. It was reissued in 1993, first by P-Vine records in Japan, then by Sequel Records in the UK, and lastly AEM in the U.S.. The reissue contains two new remixes as well as an interview with George Clinton discussing the background of the recording. Years later, both Horny Horns albums were released on a two-CD set by WEA in the UK.
