No way! P-Funk's gospel songs are among their finest work. "Everyone" and "Can You Get to That" are definitely two of my favorite Funkadelic tracks. I even like "The Silent Boatman."

I'll second "Can You Get To That." That would be my favorite Funkadelic song ever if "Maggot Brain," "I Wanna Know If It's Good To You," and "Super Stupid" had never been written or recorded. Since they were, however, it is relegated to a glorious fourth place. An amazing, brilliant track: "When you base your life on credit, and your lovin' days are done, checks you signed with love and kisses later come back signed 'insufficient funds.'" That line is straight-up genius.
Life...life...I know it's got its ups and downs.

In the someday, what's that sound.

Yeah, but it's not nearly as good as the song's first line(s): I once had a life / or, rather, life had me.

I got a thing you got a thing is heavy influenced by sly and the family stone the riff played by ray monnette is the funkiest guitar riff hendrix never recorded this song is about getting high the ultimate party jam. good old music is another parliaments remake the original was motown psychedelic soul this version outdoes it the drums are louder tiki fulwood is smiling from the grave the drum paTTERN IS THE MOST SAMPLED IN RAP MUSIC NEXT TO James brown's funky drummer the guitars are loud props to eddie hazel, and tawl ross and billy bass goes stupid on the bassline at the end he hoes into ball of confusion by the temptations who was copying these mugs heavily round this time but the temps being on motown was gonna get more exposure. qualify to satisfy is another funkpsychedelic blues tune calvin simon tries to convince a girl to sleep with him saying he's better than her man the lyrics are'mt much but the funkadelics make up for it the beat gets crazieer as the song progress eddie hazel gets more out there til he goes to the next solar system at the end it was like he met the crossroads, hendrix and said I'll be back next millenium I'm, going back to earth now crazy stuff man the last song what is soul has george clinton once again explaining his mission tiki'as drums are loud and eddie and billy's playing are on the 1. can't shake it loose is an old jam in the motown fashion the supremes covered this this one has george, calvin simon and eddie hazel singing lead cool jam, as good as i can feel is instrumental the funkadelics was the hottest funk band love it, open our eyes is the stramgest gopspel song I ever heard eddie hazel sings lead over an haunting piana man sounds like an gospel performance from 1870 scary man what's weirder is that hazel does a guitar solo at the end and gets all jimi hendrix with it clearly funkadelic was the best funk band that graced mother earth please cop this and all p funk recordings if p funk is your cup of tea.

I have loved Maggot Brain and various other bits for many years, but a spare tenner in my pocket the other day urged me to buy FREE YOUR MIND... ...AND YOUR ASS WILL FOLLOW. Never heard it before and it's not been mentioned in this thread either.

Well fuck me! Side 1 of this record is so great that i haven't managed to move on to side 2 yet.

I don't know if anyone mentioned this album:
http://www.amazon.com/Live-at-Beverly-T ... B000001TV5

It's not the prime Mother Earth era, but it's no joke either. It's blown out the speakers in a few cars Ive been in. Eddie Hazel destroys. The vocals are all on fire. Dennis Chambers on drums. The horn are great. I remember crying laughing at how ridiculously awesome the hot spots of this cd hit me while driving somewhere with my cousin (who got me into the P). Two grown men crying laughing at how awesome a band is. Jesus.

Ever hear someone say that they don't trust anyone (musically speaking) that wasn't into some form of 'Punk' at one time? Well, I don't trust anyone who doesn't like PFunk or James Brown. They are Spocks to me. Actually, HAL9000.
Hey givemenoughrope, this sounds like a prime candidate for the sendspace thread! Hint hint.

Every now and then, "Wars of Armageddon" will pop up on my iPod while I'm out for a run. This song is notable for two qualities:

1) It is the best song ever to hear while running.

2) It is the funkiest song ever performed.

Strange, America Eats Its Young would be only Funkadelic album that I do not consider brilliant or essential. Yes, it does have cool cover and many good songs but overall there's too much of Parliament vibe in it.

On the other hand Osmium is the only Parliament record which I don't need to own. It's too psychedelic in a silly way. Sure, songs on their own work just fine but put together they make bizarre collection. The Silent Boatmen is a wonderful closer. Afro-American people and bagpipes!

Here I am talking about P-Funk from their beginning up to 1978 or 1979.

You know what else is not crap? Pedro Bell's artwork (pardom me if this hasn't already been mentioned). And he's a Chicagoan--I had the pleasure to meet him a few months back. Here's a Roctober interview with him:

wow. i never got that at all really. hmm. now, i have to listen to everything...


Like most double albums, there is some filler, but there's plenty of really good stuff on it--I can see Bootsy's presence suggesting a bit of Parliament vibe, though. Although I'd put it below Maggot Brain, Cosmic Slop, and Standing on the Verge . . . (and Osmium), I probably listen to it more than those P-Funk records I haven't mentioned.

Keep in mind, it's about the performances. The recording is a basically a real great board tape, but a 90s board tape with 90s live sound: too much compression on everything.

How do I do the sendspace thing? I'll have to convert to mp3 first..
Convert to mp3, zip it, and upload it at sendspace.com.

Then paste the link they give you in the sendspace thread. ;)

"Chocolate City" a Parliament record, is great as well.
