In mid 1976, there was alot going on in George Clinton's
P-Funk universe! Parliament was riding high from their recent
successes with "Mothership Connection" and
"The Clones Of Dr. Funkenstein", he had just inked
Bootsy's Rubber Band a deal with Warner Bros. Records
on the strength of that success, and Funkadelic was
coming to the end of it's contractual obligations
with the independent Westbound Records, who had
given him and his funk mob the perfect lab to
experiment in and hone their craft over the seven
years that they had been together at the time of this album.
Add to this, they were in the middle of rehearsals for
the elaborate $275,000 (in 1976/77 dollars!) jaugernaut that
would become the fabled "P-Funk Earth Tour", which would take
them to another level as far as their concert & record sales!
It was in this magical & chaotic climate that Warner Bros.
made a move and put in a bid for Funkadelic to come
to their label! George, ever the opportunist, saw the
big budget of a major label behind his vision for Funkadelic
and the rest is history!
Songs were hastily thrown together from what the
Parliafunkadelicment Thang, at the height of their
creative powers, had been pooling together in United Sound
in Detroit, Sunset Sound in L.A., as well as from the
Air Force Hangar in Newburgh, NY where they had been hold
up in rehearsals. Some were really good, and some were
basically glorified demos. The result of this was called
"Hardcore Jollies", released in October 1976.

Class guitar solos on "Coming Around the Mountain", "hardcore Jollies" ,and "Cosmic Slop". Nice funktified song "If You Got Funk, You Got Style" and other funkadelic greats such as "Smoky", "Soul Mate", "You Scared the Loving Out of Me" and the mellow Bernie Worrel induced "Adolescent Funk". This albums kicks a@@.

One of the best funk albums(Funkadelic too). Eddie Hazel was an unsung heir apparent to Jimi Hendrix. While George Clinton was the comedian and consummate funk hype man Glenn Goins was the soul of early P-Funk.

By the time this album was released in 1976, I was already so enamored with Funkadelic that whenever a new album came out, I got so geeked I couldn't contain myself. Every new album meant a new adventure because you never knew what to expect (except that it was going to be FUNKY!). Just when I thought "Tales of Kidd Funkadelic" was IT until the next fall, out comes "HARDCORE JOLLIES! The hair on my body stood on end when I saw yet another new Pedro Bell album cover sitting in the record store bin. I knew this was going to be a CRAZY record and I was RIGHT! Nevermind award-winning singing/song-writing. This was crazy, hardcore FUNK right from the gate! "Comin' Round the Mountain" started it off with some nasty, nasty drum beats by guest drummer-the late, legendary Buddy Miles, "Boogie" Mosson's monster bass(!) and one of the BADDEST lead guitar performances ever recorded, by the "Maggot Brain" himself- Eddie Hazel! George goes into some crazy vocal experimentation throughout and Glen Goins and Garry Shider both get their chance to excercise their vocal cords. The title track is simply THE BADDEST BAND IN THE WORLD world doing their thing(!), featuring Eddie again and some hellacious "dueling guitars" to finish it off! Pedro's insane, ghetto space drawings and "fractured fairy-tale" liner notes contributed to making this album the complete "otherworld" experience. I thought this album was a slight step down from "Let's Take It to The Stage", but it's STILL FUNKADELIC TO ME!!

this is some stanking p funk not for the weak of funk. has the classic Soul Mate which one my favorite of all time P-funk songs. Get this if you got funk and want some adolcent funk but is still grown. The 70's were great and on this wreckin record it shows

"Hardcore Jollies" starts off with a classic-- "Comin Round The Mountain" is one of the all time best Funkadelic guitar jams and to me, it is the definitive Eddie Hazel moment. (before you argue, yes it is Eddie Hazel uncredited on that track no matter what you think) New kid (or should I say Kidd?) Mike Hampton gets a nice little guitar workout on the title track... There is a solid live version of "Cosmic Slop" which showcases both Hampton and Shider but suffers from poor mixing of the vocals which drop out at times... "You Scared the Lovin' out of me" is a classic track with shimmering Bernie Worrell synth, a phased and distorted guitar riff that quotes "The Streets of Cairo" (which spawned the "place in france, naked ladies dance" dirty nursery song) and a crazed Glen Goins screaming in a tone that is at once funny, incredibly skilled, exacerbated, soulful and a little bit unsettling. "Adolescent Funk" is a Worrell showcase with some nice moog soloing but it sort of meanders to nowhere. The rest of the tracks are listenable and not at all bad, they just aren't very memorable. Overall this is a good, solid record. I would give it 3.5 stars if I was allowed. A good album for fans, but probably not a good starting point for neophytes.
