Live - Meadowbrook, Rochester, Michigan - 12th September 1971Tidal Waves Music
***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’. 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, and former Isaac Hayes sideman HAROLD BEANE. Includes extensive and 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 and Billy Bass. Packaged with an obi strip and limited to 1,000 copies.
