DESCRIPTION 'Hardcore Jollies' was Funkadelic's ninth studio album and their debut on Warner Bros Records. Released in October 1976 and dedicated to "the guitar players of the world", it showed Funkadelic was the heaviest black rock band since Jimi Hendrix's Band Of Gypsies (even featuring Buddy Miles on one track). With lead guitarists Michael Hampton and Eddie Hazel dazzling, the personification of funk Bootsy Collins on bass, Bernie Worrell's keyboard wizardry and many more, the album was helmed by the genius of George Clinton. Reaching no.12 on the US R&B chart, the album spawned singles 'Comin' Round The Mountain' (US R&B No.54) and 'Smokey' (US R&B No.96) and a live remake of 1973's 'Cosmic Slop' from the album of the same name. Recorded during rehearsals for 1976's P-Funk Earth Tour, this version features a vocal introduction dropped from the 1973 studio cut. Over 45 years since its original release, 'Hardcore Jollies' is among Funkadelic and George Clinton's best-ever albums and remains a masterful example of their creative genius. FUNKADELIC 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, R&B & Soul led to the band crossing over to the pop mainstream & gaining a vast international following, becoming one of the most important & influential groups in music. On 6 May 1997, Parliament / Funkadelic were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame by Prince. To commemorate six decades of thrilling & delighting fans, George Clinton returned to the stage in 2022 for a series of concerts. To celebrate, Charly have reissued Funkadelic's classic four albums 'Hardcore Jollies'; 'One Nation Under A Groove'; 'Uncle Jam Wants You'; & 'The Electric Spanking Of War Babies' (originally released by Warner Bros during a golden period for the band between 1976-1981). Each album will be available as deluxe gatefold Digi-Sleeve CDs in PVC wallets + obi-strip & facsimile-edition gatefold LPs on 180-gram black vinyl & limited edition 180-gram colored vinyl + 1970s-style obi-strip in a protective PVC sleeve. "They played a HUGE role in creating the future of music." PRINCE
