About

- The Analog Vault // Essential Listening -

Masterminded by George Clinton alongside core members lead guitarist Eddie Hazel, bassist Billy Nelson, rhythm guitarist Lucious “Tawl” Ross, and drummer Ramon “Tiki” Fulwood - Funkadelic pioneered a heavy and heady mix of acid rock and funk. Following their self-titled debut, and their sophomore release “Free Your Mind… And Your Ass Will Follow”, this third album was the collective at their zenith. It was as if the training wheels came off - Maggot Brain was mind-blowing from its opening solo, a launchpad into an LSD-fueled freak out full of fuzzed-out guitars, intoxicating grooves and explicit lyricism. An exhibition of controlled musical chaos, this album embodies the bombast and bedlam of the 1970s. Socially and spiritually, Maggot Brain was singular of its time.

This version is remastered from new high-res analogue transfers. Includes bonus 'Maggot Brain' 12” with 2017 “Reworked by Detroiters” remix and 1971 live performance. Pressed on 180gm black vinyl.
