Deluxe double LP 2017 reissue

Out of print since 1997 and mastered from the original analog tapes

Compilations are tricky and hard to get right ... Finest is that rare one that knocks it out of the park. This release focuses on George Clinton and crew at the height of their career and on their most renowned work.

Comprising 16 carefully selected tracks and covering a six-year period (1970-1976), Finest may be the best-assembled Funkadelic collection from this period yet, as both renowned band standards share space with several oft-overlooked tracks.

The early tracks "I Got a Thing" and "I Wanna Know if It's Good to You" show the band-members still honing their rich 'n' funky sound, before they hit their stride with selections from the classic Maggot Brain album. As a result, you get a healthy sampling of some of the best funk the '70s had to offer, including "Hit It and Quit It," "You and Your Folks, Me and My Folks," "Loose Booty," "Cosmic Slop," "Red Hot Mama," and "Get Off Your Ass and Jam."

Finest is an exceptional sampler for those discovering the wild and wacky universe of Funkadelic.

Out of print since 1997 and transferred from the original analog master tapes, now finally back available as a deluxe double LP set with some of the craziest psychedelic crumb-style artwork you'll ever see.
