5.0 out of 5 stars Pure Funk Genius 20 Dec 2008
Format:Audio CD
This album is possibly the best I've bought in years. I have been into Parliament & Funkadelic since I was 14 and have somehow managed to overlook this album and not get around to buying it. It was also deleted for a while, it's a very worthy and welcome re-issue.

The line up includes Bootsy Collins on "Space Bass" and I swear its Bootsy at his finest. I don't think I've ever heard him so good on any record, be it Funkadelic or The JB's. Bernie Warrel on `What About It' just sizzles. There are several covers on this album, ordinarily I'm a bit dubious about cover versions but Hazel's version of `California Dreaming' is sublime from start to finish, the cover of `I Want Her (she's so heavy) originally by The Beatles, is incredible and some how manages to evoke early Sabbath for me.

Hazel had a unique ability, to be very showy as a guitarist, but maintain a degree of subtlety that few can achieve. He unfairly to my mind gets compared with Hendrix too much, it's a bit like accusing all Metal Bands of sounding like Black Sabbath. Each has there own voice and although Hendrix pioneered a style of playing, Hazel took it too his own new level. His fuzz tinged wah fuelled guitar licks shimmer over the whole album. The backing is incredible, particularly Jerome Braily and Tiki Fulwood's drumming contributions, along with the backing vocals of Dawn Silva, particularly on `I Want Her'. Every one involved with this album seems to have pulled out all the stops for Hazel. The final track on the album before the reprise of `California Dreaming', `What About It' is without a doubt one of the finest slices of dance floor Funk I have ever heard and should be dropped at every house party!!!

What can I say, buy this album its truly wonderful. Eddie Hazel left us something very beautiful indeed, may he Rest In Peace & jam with Jimi.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Holy Grail! 15 Aug 2006
By Cholly
Format:Audio CD
If you like guitar rock, metal, funk or soul then this album deserves a place in your collection. Eddie Hazel was part of Funkadelic during the early 70s but receded to the background as the decade progressed. He resurfaced in 1977 with this gem of an album. His astounding technical ability is complemented by a very soulful tone. Good backup from George Clinton, Bootsy Collins et al.

The only reason I didn't rate it with 5 stars is because the album is pretty short. The quality is 5 stars however.

4.0 out of 5 stars treasure chest 23 Oct 2012
By cagire
Format:Vinyl
A concentrated dose of superb guitar driven funk rock. what i choose to keep (i dont take prisoners) out of this collection, gives me a somewhat tailored collection of the original track listing, but man i love it! some exquisitely arranged backing vocals on "California Dreaming", as well as "shes so heavy" (an exellent grooved out version of the original masterpiece on the Beatles double white......i think); i have a compilation of intensely good Funkadelic tracks with which this fits very nicely for a good evenings funk. check out the MP3 album samples if youre in doubt.

5.0 out of 5 stars A TRUE GENIUS & LEGEND 7 Dec 2006
By Garnell Williams - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
EDDIE HAZEL- Let me start by saying I'm 53 yrs. old and still "FUNKIN"! I first heard Funkadelic around 1969-70. The song was "Mommy What's a Funkadelic". I knew right then & there I had heard the 3rd phase of funk, the first the god farther JB, the second being Sly. God, these were the most slammin brothers on the planet, and they featured one of the most(if not the slamminist guitarist I had ever heard. Next to Jimi Hendrix who in my opinion wasn't as smooth as this cat but was the god of guitar at that time. George Clinton had special gift for finding talented musical genuises and this was his first. The orignal cut of Maggot Brain is classical stuff, Truly this lp is classical, genius, magic that only happens once in a lifetime. A masterpiece & must have. Truly RIP EDDIE!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Guitar Thangs 8 Dec 2006
By BKenny - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This is a must have for funk fans. Eddie Hazel is a true genius on the lead guitar and never fully received his props. The guitar work on this album gives you an idea of what true guitar work is. The songs are for sure G. Clinton induced but, when you hear California Dreamin' or "I Want You", you are in for a true treat and experience. Buy this album! If you want to know real guitar, listen to Eddie "maggot Brain" Hazel!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars So so good at guitar 19 July 2007
By A. Chadderton - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Obviously every song has mind blowing guitar. The best being the end of Physical Love where Senor Hazel is playing some of the most intense guitar i've ever heard. The problem is that the guitar on that part is the least prominent instrument, but there is some sweet synth keyboard I think Bernie Worrell was playing his keyboard underwater. Anywho California Dreamin', Physical Love, and What about it? sell this cd. The "I want you (She's so heavy)" cover is fantastic and has a good little jam in between. Frantic Moment and So goes the story are odd, but who cares it's Eddie Hazel. For those of you who don't know Eddie Hazel is one of the greatest guitartists of all time, but unfortunately had a short life like many other musicians. Rest in P Eddie.
PS. There is quote that describes funk perfectly in the liner notes.

4.0 out of 5 stars An excellent debut from the king of funk guitar 28 July 2008
By finulanu - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
An all-too-rare cult classic. Fans of Hazel's work with Funkadelic should know that this is in a similar vein: trippy funk-rock with a lot of Hazel's guitar. The dark "Frantic Moment" is especially in this style. And Hazel cranks up the distortion knob on the entertaining "So Goes the Story," playing a solo that's a lot like his work on Standing on the Verge of Getting it On. The two sixties rock covers are also very, very good. Eddie takes on the Beatles' "I Want You (She's so Heavy)" and the Mamas and the Papas' "California Dreamin'" into a slow, stoned haze, and turns both of them into showcases for his awesome guitar playing. "I Want You" especially benefits from this, and although the Beatles are my favorite band and Abbey Road is my favorite album ever, this is my pick for the best version of the song. Just because his many solos are so good. He pulls out all the stops, and does some of his most imaginative playing this side of "Maggot Brain." His version of Bootsy Collins' "Physical Love" is just a vehicle for his guitar playing, so it's good that his solo there is excellent. Sadly, the last two tracks are disappointing. "What About It?" isn't very exciting compared to the rest of the material, and there's an annoying reprise of "California Dreamin'". Still, fans of the P should get this if they can find it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Game, Dames, & Guitar Thangs 6 Jun 2008
By Morton - Published on Amazon.com

Eddie Hazel-Game, Dames, & Guitar Thangs *****

When I first bought this I put it in the stereo the second I got home, and I loved it so much I cancelled my plans for the rest of the day and listened to the album over and over and over again. As a guitar player and someone who the first thing he notices is the guitar in the song, I was absolutely amazed by this and still am. I can't believe how a guitar player as great as Hazel was didn't get the recognition he deserves. I'm not gonna compare him to Hendrix because the only comparison I can think of is that they are both black so that would be a little silly.

But as a whole the album, Game, Dames, & Guitar Thangs is simply breathtaking. With a majority of the album being written by the great George Clinton (Hazel's partner in Parliament and Funkadelic) with the exception of two covers. 'California Dreamin' starts off the album, which is a Mama's & Papa's cover and while it isn't as great as the original it is a great vehicle for Eddie's guitar acrobatics. 'Frantic Moment' is one of the most stellar guitar grooves of all time, released in the time of the guitar God it would make most of them blush. 'So Goes The Story' is a weird and funky groove, and while yes it is strange it is classic Hazel. The Beatles cover 'I Want You (She's So Heavy)' is in my opinion a major improvement upon the original, and once again a perfect vehicle for his playing. 'Physical Love' would make Steve Vai and Joe Satriani scratch their heads, and 'What About It?' is the only track less than amazing, and yet it is still very enjoyable. However the 'California Dreamin (Reprise)' is slightly pointless other than to bookend the album.

It's a shame that Hazels fantastic musicianship has gone largely unknown much like Game, Dames, & Guitar Thangs has. But with the help of his Funkadelic band mates Hazel created one of the greatest unsung albums of all time, it's just to bad he quit music not to long after this due to his loss of control to substance abuse, which later killed him...at least we have this. Highly recommended.
