Funkadelic's US R&B Top 20 Warner Bros. Debut reissued. Masterminded by the larger-than-life figure of George Clinton, Funkadelic was a key component of his influential P-Funk empire. Funkadelic's unique combination of Rock, Psychedelia and Soul led to the band to crossing over into the pop mainstream and gaining an international following, to become one of the most important groups in the evolution of funk. Continuing the reissue programme of classic Funkadelic albums, 'Hardcore Jollies' [US R&B No.12] was Funkadelic's ninth studio album and their first on Warner Bros. Records. Released in October 1976 and dedicated to "the guitar players of the world", it followed hard on the heels of their last album for indie Westbound, which comprised outtakes from the same recording sessions. 'Hardcore Jollies' was also the last Funkadelic album to feature three original members of The Parliaments, vocalists Fuzzy Haskins, Grady Thomas and Calvin Simon. Arguably lighter in tone that earlier outings, way-out goofiness still abounds with standout moments including 'If You Got Funk, You Got Style' and 'Soul Mate'.CD - Reproduced here in a deluxe media book with booklet. LP - Heavyweight vinyl reissue.
