Osmium, Funkadelic, Free You Mind And Your Ass Will Follow, Maggot Brain, America Eats Its Young, Cosmic Slop…I love the early Parliament-Funkadelic before they became P-Funk legends. The music is completely “out there”. Totally original. Raw psychedelic soul mixed with proto-heavy metal and funk. Nasty guitar licks from Eddie Hazel (check out the solo on Maggot Brain – he’s up there with Hendrix) and mad
singing chanting from George Clinton.
One of the great things about youtube is that it’s possible to watch wonderful clips like the two I post here. One clip is from a TV-show in 1969 and the other one is a clip from 1973 where the whole P-Funk gang run around in NYC and mime to “Cosmic Slop”.
