FUNKADELIC 'LIVE MEADOWBROOK 1971'
January 6 - 2017
Vinyl (Double LP)
Contained here is a unique snapshot of Funkadelic's live performance at the height of their powers. Recorded live at Meadowbrook, Rochester, Michigan on the 12th of September 1971, this is the only official in-concert recording from their early career.
The crystal clear recordings here (taken from the soundboard master tapes) provide you with an overdose of free-floating psychedelic black rock and spaced-out jams that can only be described as ‘Jimi Hendrix, James Brown & Sun Ra making a love-child live on stage’.
This release also includes extensive & exhaustive liner notes from the Grammy-award winning professor of ethnomusicology ‘Rob Bowman’ who goes over each track in detail and also wrote down quotes from Bernie Worrell & Billy Bass.
Featuring an all-star line up that includes George Clinton, Fuzzy Haskins, Calvin Simon, Grady Thomas, Ray Davis, Tyrone Lampkin, Eddie Hazel, Billy Bass Nelson, Bernie Worrell & former Isaac Hayes sideman Harold Beane.
Today we present to you this unique release for the FIRST TIME ON VINYL & packaged as a deluxe Double-LP set. An exclusive color vinyl variant for this release is available from AMBOEBA RECORDS (100 copies GOLD vinyl) & from ZIA RECORDS (100 copies MAGGOT BRAIN vinyl).
