商品説明

Eddie Hazel rose to fame in the early '70s as part of George Clinton's Parliament/Funkadelic troupe. An extremely talented and underappreciated guitarist/songwriter, Hazel had no problem nailing down Hendrix-like guitar freakouts (Maggot Brain) or nasty, straight-up funk (Loose Booty, Red Hot Mama). Although drug abuse would hinder his talents (he went to prison in the late '70s and eventually died in 1993 because of it), Hazel still came through when inspired and focused. Although he did release one official solo album in 1977 (Games, Dames & Guitar Thangs), there wasn't much material left behind where the listener could hear Eddie cut loose on guitar due to the Clinton-generated pressure to write a hit single. All of this is solved by the Jams From the Heart EP, which features some of Eddie's greatest playing ever committed to tape. The tracks are from a 1975 studio session, when he was laying down demos for his upcoming solo debut. Quite simply, Eddie rips on guitar. Smedley Smorganoff opens up with Eddie getting the feel for the other musicians, while the near 12-minute Lampoc Boogie is the near-ultimate guitar showcase for Hazel (the above-mentioned Maggot Brain gets top honors). The gut-wrenching ballad From the Bottom of My Heart is another long track and is the only song on the album to contain vocals. The final selection, the short Unkut Funk, features some great band interplay on a fat groove, which wraps up the EP nicely. A wonderful introduction for those curious about the many talents of Eddie Hazel, especially since it's nearly 30 minutes long yet priced as a mini-album. [Note: the first pressing of Jams From the Heart didn't contain personnel and track listings. Later pressings did.] ~ Greg Prato, Rovi

Eddie Hazel

A mythical figure, original Funkadelic guitarist Eddie Hazel pioneered an innovative funk-metal sound in the early '70s, best exemplified on his mammoth classic instrumental jam Maggot Brain. This mythological status arises from his brief, mysterious era of productivity, a shadowy three-album cycle capped by Maggot Brain that came to a close as Hazel's notorious drug problems began to haunt him, r
