Funkadelic - Maggot Brain (1971)

George Clinton lets loose with this slab of funk.

Mixing soul and heavy rock with funky grooves
that drop in bits of jarring psychedelia, this is
rightly hailed as a classic release by Funkadelic.

It starts off with a Hendrix style, 10 minute burst
of slow wah-wah soloing before launching into
the rest of the tracks.

Playing this mish-mash of styles with hard rock
elements creeping in and out, you can hear future
echoes of Prince and Primal Scream.
