Funkadelic releases Hardcore Jollies
Hardcore Jollies is the ninth studio album by the funk band Funkadelic, released on October 29, 1976 by Warner Bros.
Records, their first album to be issued on a major label. It is dedicated to "the guitar players of the world." Originally, the first side of the album was called "Osmosis Phase 1" and the second side was "Terribitus Phase 2." Hardcore Jollies was released one month after Funkadelic's last album for Westbound Records, Tales of Kidd Funkadelic, which was made up of outtakes recorded at the same sessions.
Hardcore Jollies was the last Parliament-Funkadelic album to include three of the original members of The Parliaments: Fuzzy Haskins, Calvin Simon and Grady Thomas. Though uncredited, Hardcore Jollies features instrumental performances by guitarist Eddie Hazel.
The album has been reissued on compact disc by Charly Groove Records and Priority Records.
