FUNKADELIC - FREE YOUR MIND...AND YOUR ASS WILL FOLLOW (1970)
There really aren't enough superlatives in the dictionary to do this album justice. Free Your Mind... is an absolute masterpiece, and its influence spans PRINCE to CLUTCH and all points in between. My sole complaint was always that the production on this album is downright dismal. Fear not, though, as this set has been tweaked and adjusted by yours truly for your listening pleasure. From the 10-minute acid freakout title track, through the classic "Friday Night, August 14th" and Eddie Hazel's amazing leadwork on "I Wanna Know if It's Good to You?", Funkadelic's Free Your Mind...and Your Ass Will Follow is absolutely essential to any rock fan's collection.
