Tommy's Fresh Record Club #1Funkadelic - Maggot Brain

Maggot Brain, released July 1971 is considered by many as the seminal release from George Clinton's funk collective Funkadelic. I love this record for many reasons, the most obvious being the amazing guitar work of the late great Eddie Hazel. Legend has it that George Clinton told Hazel to play as if his mother had died on the title track, the feedback drenched results are truly stunning.

Each track on the record is wildly different and encompasses funk, hard rock, soul and elements of gospel. This is the sound of a band at their peak.

Check it out!
