• funkadelic Maggot Brain (180g coloured vinyl LP, £31.95)

    label: 4 Men With Beards

    Reissued on BLUE AND WHITE STARBURST VINYL and packaged in a deluxe gatefold sleeve, this is Funkadelic's classic 1971 masterpiece 'Maggot Brain'. Absolutely no one working in soul and funk at the time had the scope, or vision, to pull off the kind of record that George Clinton and his collaborators have made here. Eccentric funk jams are bookended by two of the heaviest tracks ('Maggot Brain' and 'Wars Of Armageddon') ever committed to tape. Eddie Hazel's guitar in the mind blowing title track is a revolution brought on by Clinton asking him to play "as if your mother just died".
