Let’s Take It to the Stage

Released

Funkadelic would continue to feature rock guitars, not least on their ‘guitar album’ Hardcore Jollies, but Let’s… was their final full psychedelic acid-rock album before transforming into a churning groove-machine. Album highlight Get Off Your Ass And Jam appears from a squall of feedback, matching a supa-tight drum and bass rhythm track with guitar shredding and yet another highly memorable P-Funk slogan/lyric hook. The acid-funk-rock, surreal asides and sonic experimentation of Let’s… uniquely mesh squealing overdriven guitars, J.B.s-esque funk, occasional synth noodles and classic P-Funk stacked vocal harmonies.
