Reworked By Detroiters

Vinyl: $36.99 Buy

MP3 Album: $11.49 Download

Limited triple vinyl LP pressing. Funkadelic was the most influential group to emerge from Detroit in the 1970s. Their early albums have cast a long shadow over everything that came afterwards in the city. It was music that understood the past but was firmly aiming towards the future and mixed soul, funk and rock into an almost unimaginable stew. This album is a tribute from some of the most important recording artists currently working in the city to these most influential of forefathers. The very finest talent now active in Detroit appear on the record, being given free rein to work on the multi-track tapes, to rework in any way they see fit. We have full-on remixes, futuristic creations using the original track as an inspiration, discofied re-edits and skeletal dubs. Spearheaded by Brendan Gillen of Interdimensional Transmissions, the set features names working across the musical spectrum. There is an appearance by those most mysterious of techno pioneers Underground Resistance, and by Kenny Dixon Jr and his alter-ego Moodymann. The Dirtbombs throw down a frenetic take on 'Super Stupid', whilst disco re-edit expert Gaye Marvine adds his magic to 'Undisco Kidd'. Other contributors include Funkadelic alumni Amp Fiddler, Marcellus Pittman and Anthony Shake Shakir.

UK only vinyl pressing! Recorded at United Sound Studios, Audio Graphic Services, and G-M Recording Studios, Detroit, Michigan. Funkadelic's self-titled debut may have touched upon drug-induced acid rock, but on their 1970 follow-up, Free Your Mind And Your Ass Will Follow, the band blows the door off it's hinges. Look no further than the album-opening ten-minute title track-perhaps the most spaced out composition witnessed by rock & roll since the Rolling Stones' late-'60s psychedelic-phase. Westbound. 2006.

UK only vinyl pressing! Funkadelic's 1974 release STANDING ON THE VERGE OF GETTING IT ON proved to be a continuation of the more consolidated direction laid down on it's predecessor, COSMIC SLOP. But STANDING is the better and stronger album, and easily Funkadelic's most consistent work since the classic MAGGOT BRAIN. Even though the band's members were, at the time, doing double duty in the more commercially oriented Parliament, Funkadelic maintained it's complete allegiance here to wildly experimental, rock-influenced music. The album begins with a lighthearted poem read by two band members, their voices sped up to sound like the Chipmunks. This leads directly into the vicious funk-rock of "Red Hot Mama" and the absolutely raging rocker, "Alice in My Fantasies". The mood calms down briefly for the soulful "I'll Stay" and the playful pop of "Sexy Ways". There are jazzy moments ("Jimmy's Got a Little Bit of Bitch in Him"), and meditative instrumentals ("Good Thoughts, Bad Thoughts"), but the topper is the title track, a manically exuberant jam that still ranks among P-funk's greatest moments. Westbound. 2006.
