CD Reviews

My Favorite Funkadelic
Blackberry Tea | Kansas | 06/03/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I first had this on 8-track in high school, so among other things, it is a sentimental favorite. But ... I have most of their stuff and to me, this is their best. It does not have the longer funk jams or completely whacked out guitar work that some of the later/earlier CDs feature. What you get here is very TIGHT, very clever and very funny stuff. The title track is a classic where they poke fun at other funk/soul groups of the day. Lot's of Bootsy shines through here too. "Get Off Your Ass and Jam" forces you to do just that, albeit for only 2 minutes. The lead cut, "Good To Your Earhole" is another burner.Don't miss this one!!!BTW, it is not a live album, as some folks think."
Get Off Your WHAT And Jam?
Andre' S Grindle | Bangor,ME. | 09/11/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I personally believe that Funkadelic were hitting a peak when they made 'Let's Take It To The Stage".They had certainly perfected their mix of funk and psychedelic rock and

had it down to a science.And in the pure funk-rock idion

"Good To Your Earhole","Stuffs And Things" and the unforgettable

"Get Off Your Ass And Jam" are the real deal!The zany title track and the cryptic "Better By The Pound" are P-Funk basics with the latter featuring a brilliant percussion section.And the

whole shabang ends off with the dirty,dirty "Atmosphere",nothing

but gospel organ and a filthy lyric-it so sacreligious I LOVE it!

"Be My Beach" is one of those psychedelic Bootsy ballads that just punches you out (at least it does me) and

"No Head,No Backstage Pass" is trashier then anything I've

heard Aerosmith or Sabbath or ANY groovy hard rock band do!

"This Song Is Familiar" is yet more of Funkadelic at their

irreverant best-almost acapella gospel of sorts!To me this is

one Funkadelic album that got pretty overlooked at first but that the years have treated VERY kindly!This is the kind of music that Digital Underground and Outkast have cut their teeth on and as it is it's still out and out FUNKY!Not to mention how

it steers out of the long winded jam band style that had become a Funkadelic clishe'.I'd actually recommend this to anyone as the Funkadelic album to start with-their first album is at the

same level but this is somewhat easier to get into!"
Funk-Rock at its finest

"This album strikes a balance between the earlier more psycadelic material; Maggot Brain, Free Your Mind; and the later more commercial stuff; One Nation. The first cut, Good To Your Earhole is as strong a record as the group ever made, with stong drumming, excellent keyboard work by Bernie Worrell, and a blistering guitar solo at the end, courtesey of the legendary Eddie Hazel."
