Funkadelic "Maggot Brain"

Today’s Cool Album of the Day  is Funkadelic, Maggot Brain.

A little ‘70s hard funk! This was a ground breaking album that combined parts of funk, jazz, soul, rock and roll, you name it.

Funkadelic was led by vocalist George Clinton and keyboard man Bernie Worrell. ( Who later had a stint in Talking Heads.)

It was produced by George Clinton and reached #108 on the Billboard charts.
