iTunes Review

As heavy as Led Zeppelin, as free as Jimi Hendrix, and as soulful as anything on Motown, Funkadelic is one of pop music’s most auspicious debuts. After training for years with various R&B groups in the Detroit underground, George Clinton and his multitude of players broke through in 1970. The music herein represents the far side of the other side. Utilizing an entire chorus of voices, Clinton serves here as director of his own hedonistic congregation.

The band pursued album statements of social/political commentary while Parliament stayed in the funk singles format, but Funkadelic nevertheless paralleled the more commercial group's success, especially in the late '70s when the interplay between bands moved the...
