Funkadelic: America Eats Its Young (1972)
Lengthy opening jam "You Hit The Nail On The Head" is a personal fave, a phenomenal psychedelic groove opening and closing the song, with a melodic, downbeat lyrical interlude tucked into the middle. Other stand-outs include the slow-burning anthem "If You Don't Like The Effects, Don't Produce The Cause"; funky party rocker "Loose Booty"; understated R&B ditty "I Call My Baby Pussycat"; the jaunty little instrumental "A Joyful Process"; and the poppy Motown-ish "That Was My Girl." I'm less partial to the quieter soul tracks here, but when the whole band plugs in, it's pretty damn engaging.
