Funkadelic - Maggot Brain (1971)

Worth downloading just for the 10-minute intro track, a psychedelic, fuzzed-out, extended guitar solo by the amazing Eddie Hazel. "According to legend, George Clinton, under the influence of LSD, told Eddie Hazel to play the first half of the song like his mother had just died and to play the second half as if he had found out she was alive." The tracks that follow it are swing through hard rock, gospel, soul, and of course, funk. Definitely recommended.
