5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Funkadelic Album 27 July 2004
By jamo
Format:Audio CD
this and 'standing on the verge of getting it on'(Eddie Hazels best moment contrary to popular beleif) are the most underrated of Funkadelic's albums. This actually sounds like the halfway point between funkadelic and parliament and is a very consistent album on the whole.It is much rawer than the later Warner albums and is all the better for it.The band is superb and this album has what is argubly the all time best line up inc. Eddie Hazel, Bootsy and bernie Worrel who does a fantastic instrumental all on his own at the end. I'd highly recommend it to any fan of funk and to people who just like eccentric, interesting and inventive music. Definately the band at their best - also check out standing on the verge and Maggot brain. Those three are equally the best in my opinion and everyone should own them all!

3.0 out of 5 stars a CD of two Halves 23 April 2001
Format:Audio CD
This CD starts brilliantly with the track Good to Your Earhole, but ends poorly with the final track Atmosphere. This final track is 7 minute instrumental which I just didn't take to, whereas the first track is an upbeat Funk number which is fun to listen to. This really tells the story of this CD. The first six tracks are just excellent Funky 'feel good' numbers, whereas the 2nd side seems to me to be alot more experimental and therefore disappointing. I would still recommend this cd, but if possible listen to tracks 7-10 before you buy it.

2.0 out of 5 stars remastering job great, but edited version on atmosphere HORRIBLE 1 Jan 2006
By fzappa113 - Published on
Format:Audio CD
the remastering job and cover art and liner notes are great, but westbound edited the beginning of atmosphere. i bought this version instead of the import because i read that the import had this edit also, so i figured that westbound wouldn't make the same mistake but they did. the edit is just stupid because it's only about 10 seconds they take off the beginning of the song and it makes no sense to do it.

don't buy until you know for sure that the edit has been fixed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Get Off Your WHAT And Jam? 12 Sep 2004
By Andre' S Grindle - Published on
Format:Audio CD
I personally believe that Funkadelic were hitting a peak when they made 'Let's Take It To The Stage".They had certainly perfected their mix of funk and psychedelic rock and

had it down to a science.And in the pure funk-rock idion

"Good To Your Earhole","Stuffs And Things" and the unforgettable

"Get Off Your Ass And Jam" are the real deal!The zany title track and the cryptic "Better By The Pound" are P-Funk basics with the latter featuring a brilliant percussion section.And the

whole shabang ends off with the dirty,dirty "Atmosphere",nothing

but gospel organ and a filthy lyric-it so sacreligious I LOVE it!

"Be My Beach" is one of those psychedelic Bootsy ballads that just punches you out (at least it does me) and

"No Head,No Backstage Pass" is trashier then anything I've

heard Aerosmith or Sabbath or ANY groovy hard rock band do!

"This Song Is Familiar" is yet more of Funkadelic at their

irreverant best-almost acapella gospel of sorts!To me this is

one Funkadelic album that got pretty overlooked at first but that the years have treated VERY kindly!This is the kind of music that Digital Underground and Outkast have cut their teeth on and as it is it's still out and out FUNKY!Not to mention how

it steers out of the long winded jam band style that had become a Funkadelic clishe'.I'd actually recommend this to anyone as the Funkadelic album to start with-their first album is at the

same level but this is somewhat easier to get into!

5.0 out of 5 stars Back & Forth 26 Aug 2006
By S. Brown - Published on
Format:Audio CD
I go back & forth between this album and Standing on the Verge being my favorite Funkadelic albums. Gun to my head, I'd probably say "Let's Take It To The Stage" most days. My father brought this home for me on 8-track (I was 14), and to this day I still don't know if he had any idea... The album smokes from start to finish, from Earhole to Atmosphere. More accessible than the earlier stuff, not as commercial as the later stuff, this is the band at the peak of its powers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Funk-Rock at its finest 25 Oct 1998
By A Customer - Published on
Format:Audio CD
This album strikes a balance between the earlier more psycadelic material; Maggot Brain, Free Your Mind; and the later more commercial stuff; One Nation. The first cut, Good To Your Earhole is as strong a record as the group ever made, with stong drumming, excellent keyboard work by Bernie Worrell, and a blistering guitar solo at the end, courtesey of the legendary Eddie Hazel.

5.0 out of 5 stars My Favorite Funkadelic 3 Jun 2004
By Blackberry Tea - Published on
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I first had this on 8-track in high school, so among other things, it is a sentimental favorite. But ... I have most of their stuff and to me, this is their best. It does not have the longer funk jams or completely whacked out guitar work that some of the later/earlier CDs feature. What you get here is very TIGHT, very clever and very funny stuff. The title track is a classic where they poke fun at other funk/soul groups of the day. Lot's of Bootsy shines through here too. "Get Off Your Ass and Jam" forces you to do just that, albeit for only 2 minutes. The lead cut, "Good To Your Earhole" is another burner.
Don't miss this one!!!
BTW, it is not a live album, as some folks think.
