I'll just say it up front: the title song of this album contains the best guitar solo in the history of rock music...~ You won't believe me, probably, because you have your own favorite solos clutched tightly to your chest, and anyway, isn't Funkadelic, well, y'know, a funk band? I salute your right to worship your own guitar gods; that's why we listen to loud music. But don't let the name of the band, or their color, or the age of this album fool you: Eddie Hazel recorded - in one take - the solo against which all other solos would be measured if he hadn't been African American. Sorry to play the race card, but it MUST be true.

The story on Maggot Brain is that George Clinton, out of his mind on Yellow Sunshine, told Hazel to play the first half of the song as if he had just heard that his own mother was dead, and then the second half as if he had found out she was alive. The result is beyond "astonishing" or "powerful" or anything else critics usually say; it's an improvised composition, of both deep blues purity and cold, hard, futuristic vision.

1. Can't argue with you.
Didja see 'em on the Jerry Lewis Telethon, of all things? Don't know if Hazel is still with 'em, but it wouldn't surprise me.

7. One of the greatest things
for me in watching any group perform is if they are having fun doing it and it shows! Can't be unhappy with a little George Clinton!
