I know how people are for reporting my posts for nudity even though back in 1970 mothafuckas didn't think it was a sin to put this picture out to purchase in record stores (for those that know the gatefold picture). But to accompany you sensitive people, I put half the picture up to accommodate your love for PC shit. Now that's out of the way, Eddie Hazel, you genius bastard you, you've done it again. Free Your Mind... And Your Ass Will Follow by the genre bending group Funkadelic comes back after their debut making a more guitar dominant and blues inspired project which is very psychedelic in nature but very dirty and the pinnacle of what black musicians were doing in the early 70's in terms of pushing boundaries. The album was supposedly recorded under the musicians being on LSD (if you listen to the title track, this is clearly true and understandable, it's....very....otherworldly...) but as for the rest of the album, it's a coin toss, I was born 24 years after this album so my guess is up a rat's ass to be fact checking. LSD/Acid was a prominent drug in the early 70's in the music industry so you know George and the crew were getting fucked up and recording their vocals looking at mirages and bending colors, being an informed speculator but enough about that. The guitar work by Eddie Hazel is so blues/Rock influenced which derives from a more funky approach on their first album, "Funky Dollar Bill" displays this perfectly. This is one of their underrated works, Eddie Hazel would deliver a legendary guitar solo that would blow everything else out the water he did a year later on (do I really have to mention it? You know what it is.) Just know he played like his momma died. In any case, my favorites are "I Want Know If It's Good To You" (that 2 minute instrumental at the end is godly) and "Friday Night, August 14th" (that drum solo at the end is played by a non human I swear). 1970 at its finest.
