Funkadelic's ultimate early classic (from 1971) remastered from the original masters for the first time in 15 years. Maggot Brain
is rated by, amongst others, Mojo Magazine as an all-time classic. Their critics voted it the fourth greatest guitar album ever, beaten only by Jimi Hendrix and the Who. Guitarist Eddie Hazel's playing on the title track is nothing short of stunning. This 2005 reissue includes the original seven track album plus a bonus alternate mix from 1971 of Maggot Brain
, the album's title track. It also includes Whole Lot Of BS
, the non album B-side of the album's third single, Hit It And Quit It
, and the 45 I Miss My Baby
recorded by US Music with Funkadelic, a copy of which recently sold among collectors for $150. The booklet includes in-depth sleeve notes by funk expert Dean Rudland, with details of the history of the band and this recording. The package also includes a full color reproduction of the original artwork, contemporary memorabilia and copies of advertisements.
