hendrix gone full-tilt funk,
This review is from: Free Your Mind and Your Ass Will Follow: Remastered (Audio CD)
Having recently purchased all four Funkadelic albums featuring guitarist Eddie Hazel, (their self-titled debut, Maggot Brain, and Standing On The Verge....) I can hugely recommend this album to anyone with a craving for some early 70's acid-infused funky heavy rock!
Tracks 1 through 4 are all funk rock gems...Hazel's guitar sound throughout strongly recalls Hendrix, off tracks like 'Voodoo Child (Slight Return)' and the way he controls feedback can only be compared to Jimi himself. Meanwhile, it's all kept very funky with great basslines and wigged out vocals. The final track, 'Eulogy And Light' is a hilarious re-working of the Lords Prayer with truly tripped out mellow backing music, (actually a different song of theirs fed backwards through the tape player!)
Anyone and everyone is highly recommended to get this funky masterpiece, and if not this then definitely get their next release, 'Maggot Brain' from which the title track is the undisputed Eddie Hazel signature tune.
If you like Hendrix, and your funk, buy this without hesitation.
