Legend has it that George Clinton decided to see what would happen if Funkadelic quickly recorded an entire album under the influence of LSD. The story may or may not be apocryphal, but the results, released hot on the heels of their debut, sure lend credence to the tale.
Free Your Mind goes far out… really, really far out. It takes the listener on a wild trip that is at once far reaching and intensely funky. Eddie Hazel, picking up the torch for his hero Jimi Hendrix, lays down some of the most scorching guitar-driven rock in history, intertwining it with the ever-evolving psychedelic funk of the group. History tells us that people found the results more than a little confounding–but it’s clear they just weren’t ready. Heed the advice of the title track and take the trip.
