Live: Meadowbrook, Rochester, Michigan 12th September 1971 by Funkadelic
Released: Mar 1996
Label: Westbound Records
Funkadelic's earliest albums are profoundly strange and psychedelic, but amazingly enough their sound was even more out there in the live setting. On this impeccably recorded performance from 1971, individual songs melt into a gooey stew of fuzzy acid-dirges and porno-cosmic incantations. Perversely visionary stuff for sure. George Clinton is a freaky scatological genius. "We might pee on you, but we won't do you no harm," he at one point implores. Guitarist Eddie Hazel, meanwhile, is a heavy metal feedback warlord. Would grunge and noise rock even have been born were it not for him?
