Maggot Brain 10:19
Super Stupid 03:57


After teaching the world just how psychedelic funk could become and how seamlessly it could assimilate rock n’ roll, Funkadelic recorded and released what most agree is their masterpiece, Maggot Brain. Released in 1971, this collection of tracks represents the pinnacle of the band’s middle period before they slowly morphed into futuristic funky aliens from outer space as the decade progressed. A flawless synthesis of all of their influences from the titanic, guitar-lead title track, to the infectious pop of Can You Get To That and Back In Our Minds to the flat out rock assault of Super Stupid and the warped soul of You and Your Folks and Hit It And Quit It--Maggot Brain is truly one of the greatest albums of the 1970s or any decade.


released July 12, 1971
