WHAT ABOUT IT?
The legendary, troubled Parliament/Funkadelic guitarist Eddie Hazel made only a few albums with George Clinton's collective, which makes his 1977 LP Games, Dames, & Guitar Thangs all the more precious. Hazel is joined by the P-Funk rhythm section as well as the singers of the Brides of Funkenstein on a mostly instrumental collection that contains some incendiary soloing, notably on covers of the Mamas & The Papas' "California Dreaming" and the Beatles' "I Want You (She's So Heavy)."
