September 1, 2020

[Album 795/1001]

“Who says a jazz band can’t play dance music?
Who says a rock band can’t play funky?
Who says a funk band can’t play rock?”220px-Funkadelic_-_One_Nation_Under_a_Groove
– Funkadelic, Who Says A Funk Band Can’t Play Rock?!

Whoever was saying those things, they clearly weren’t listening to Funkadelic.

Whatever the band classification / whatever the music genre, my goodness, these folks can play.

So don’t listen to the nay-sayers; instead, do yourself a favour & listen to the irresistible One Nation Under a Groove, pronto!


Verbalize the Positive

It’s tough to pick a favourite Funkadelic album (so far) between this & Maggot Brain, a very nice problem to have!

From → 1970s

  1. So many great musicians in one band – Eddie Hazel, Bernie Worrell, Bootsy Collins.

    • That’s it exactly – with some groups, it feels like there’s maybe a standout guitarist, or a standout drummer…here, it’s the whole ensemble that makes it work!

  2. Just pick both…that is fair!!

  3. That’s a good problem to have if you ask me. Pick both and crank em both when your out on your runs!

  4. Both Maggot Brain and this are on my want list. Just need to find them for less than $50, lol.

    • Both good ones to have on the wish list – and yes, both difficult to find at semi-reasonable prices!

  5. With you on the ‘Verbalise the positive’ problem here, GS.

    • If complaining about being unable to choose is the best we can do for negativity, life is good!
