Funkadelic releases Let's Take It to the Stage
Let's Take It to the Stage is the seventh album by American funk/soul/rock band Funkadelic.
It was released in April 1975 on Westbound Records. Compared to most of the group's albums it features more short and to-the-point songs and fewer extended jam sessions. The "G. Cook" songwriting credited was used by guitarist Eddie Hazel for contractual reasons (the pseudonym reflects his mother's name). The album is also notable for featuring the debut of Bootsy Collins's trademark Hendrix-inspired vocals on the track "Be My Beach". Some lyrics from "Get Off Your Ass and Jam" have been used in a remix of Lil Jon's "Get Low", by the Ying Yang Twins.
