HO – LY Shit!
“Drug free mind expansion, enlightenment thru music. Timeless and universal virtuosity. The entire track was recorded in one take. The solo is played in a pentatonic minor scale in the key of E over another guitar track of a simple arpeggio.vHazel’s solo was played through a fuzzbox and a wah pedal; some sections of the song utilize a delay effect.This 47 year old recording still gives me eargasms. Recorded in 1970 released in 1971 it’s one of the best recordings of the 20th century of any genre:)”
“Now if this song doesn’t bring tears to your eyes, you’re definitely missing something.”
“My new goal in life is having sex to this.”
“I’m going to listen to this song when the world ends. This is going to be the last thing I hear, drowning out tears.W
“Damn, I’ve never just straight up had a flood of tears from listening to a song for the first time before.. I feel like a bitch but what a soul this guy had.. speechless.”
“First listen ever. Cried tears of joy. Better for the experience. Regret not having listened sooner. Life changer. Salute to all hardcore funkanauts”
“I can’t recall ever being so moved by a song.”
“A funk masterpiece. Why Eddie Hazel and later Mike Hampton are not included in discussions about great guitarists is criminal. This track makes a most compelling case.”
“Thank you Mr Eddie Hazel for writing and performing a song that makes me tear up every time I hear it, without knowing why. First heard this song in 1976. It reminds me of good friends and good life. Truly overwhelming.”
“Blew me away then, blows me away now.”
“I put on my headphones, lie back in my chair and get stoned on Maggot Brain. It’s a nice smooth high.”
Chicago is an American rock band formed in 1967 in Chicago, Illinois. The self-described “rock and roll band with horns” began as a politically charged, sometimes experimental, rock band and later moved to a predominantly softer sound, generating several hit ballads.
The group had a steady stream of hits throughout the 1970s and 1980s. Second only to The Beach Boys in Billboard singles and albums chart success among American bands, Chicago is one of the longest-running and most successful rock groups, and one of the world’s best-selling groups of all time, having sold more than 100 million records.
Aphrodite’s Child was a Greek progressive rock band formed in 1967, by Vangelis (keyboards), Demis Roussos (bass guitar and vocals), Loukas Sideras (drums and vocals), and Anargyros “Silver” Koulouris (guitar). Their band’s name was derived from the title of a track from another Mercury act, Dick Campbell, from his Sings Where It’s At album. Papathanassiou and Roussos had already been successful in Greece (playing in the bands Formynx and Idols respectively) while they got together with Sideras and Koulouris to form a new band. Their first recording as a band was for George Romanos’ album In Concert and in Studio where they played on four songs and were credited as ‘Vangelis and his Orchestra’. In the same year they recorded a two song demo and submitted it to Philips Records.
