FUNKADELIC - LIVE: MEADOWBROOK (1971)


















It's extremely difficult to articulate the greatness of this recording. As far as official releases go, this is your best shot at hearing a young Eddie Hazel live and in top form. If you're new to FUNKADELIC, please don't confuse this record and lineup with the P-FUNK ARMY of later years. This FUNKADELIC was very much a rock band, and featured a tight roster of top-notch innovators rivaled only by JIMI's BAND OF GYPSYS. This is probably the definitive live recording of Eddie at his absolute best.

Fun stuff! Thanks for posting this. I finally had a chance to listen today. I found my mind drifting away to the mellow strains of "Maggot Brain"...
