Funkadlelic - Hardcore Jollies (1976)



Continuing with the Funk for you children. This is an early shot of Funkadelic and, of course, worthy of any house party or day at home getting funky with our own bad selves. If anyone has any rare P-Funk, please drop a line and I will post it here with credit to you. I have not been able to find any, and that is really saying something with the connections that I have.
A nice and concise description is found below from the internets-


"After splitting from their first record label in 1976 (the independent funk/soul company, Westbound), Funkadelic signed with Warner Bros. and soon after issued HARDCORE JOLLIES, their first recording for the major label. Since their rough and ready self-titled debut appeared in 1969, the band had been evolving musically with each release. As HARDCORE JOLLIES shows, Funkadelic had transformed into a smooth dance machine. The production and performances are much sleeker, planting the seeds of such future P-Funk smash albums as ONE NATION UNDER A GROOVE. From the opening chords of the album's first track, "Comin' Round The Mountain," the listener is drawn into the fun-electric-party-world of the new Funkadelic. The funky guitar licks are much tighter and less organic than those on such earlier albums as MAGGOT BRAIN, and they lend shape to such standout numbers as "If You Got Fun, You Got Style" and "Smokey." Here we also find a live version of the group's perennial showstopper, "Cosmic Slop," a number originally featured on the 1973 release of the same name. HARDCORE JOLLIES shows that Funkadelic had altered its sound slightly. The move pays off nicely, with world domination just 'round the corner for these musicians."

The link still works. The comments section just seems to cut off the last part. If you copy/paste the whole link, the last part should read:

Keep up the good work, DaddyRich!

In your own words : "Support musicians especially the good ones-they're usually the poor ones"

I would like to know how your giving away entire albums free is supporting said musicians. Seems like you're actually taking money away from them.
If someone can download a free album they are not going to go out and buy it. There goes the artist's income..
Musicians have spent a lot of money getting this stuff down and out to the public, and people like you, "Daddy", feel somehow righteous in giving it away for nothing.
Maybe if you worship George Clinton so much, you could send a him a cheque every so often. At least let him know that you have taken it upon yourself to distribute his music like a free pamphlet. See what he says about it.
If an artist chooses to give away some of their music, that's THEIR right and their right only. Not yours. Let the public go out and buy the good stuff.
Is it any wonder the "good ones" are the poor ones?
You ain't helping the situation any.
Stick to the out-take albums and leave the available released albums alone, so musicians can actually get supported a little.

Uh, pardon me...this album is OVER 30 years old! The artists in question were compensated well (very?) many times over a long time ago. The relatively few people who download this Funkadelic album via the Internet are NOT going to make or break these musicians financially--ESPECIALLY George Clinton who's lived the 'good' and 'high' life for many years and continues to do so (provided he hasn't squandered his wealth)!
