Let's Take It to the Stage. Released April 21, 1975. Let's Take It to the Stage Tracklist. 1. Good to Your Earhole Lyrics.

Uncle Jam Wants You is the eleventh studio album by American funk band Funkadelic. It was originally released by Warner Bros. Records on September 21, 1979, and was later reissued on CD by Charly Groove Records and Priority Records. It was produced by George Clinton under the alias Dr. Funkenstein. It is the first Funkadelic album since America Eats Its Young in 1972 not to sport a cover illustrated by Funkadelic artist Pedro Bell, though Bell did contribute some interior artwork

Let's Take It to the Stage also finds c on the verge of shedding it's long-lived cult status and finally reaching wide spread commercial success. UK only vinyl pressing. Despite it's misleading title, Funkadelic's Let's Take It to the Stage is not a live album. This 1975 studio release is what many Funkadelic aficionados consider the band's last true rock-funk album, before Clinton and Co. concentrated entirely on more dance-based and radio-friendly material. It is also the first c release to prominently feature the talents of the groups' recently acquired bassist, the outrageous Bootsy Collins, whom many regard as the very embodiment of funk.

Good to Your Earhole.

The following year they released the amazing Let's Take It to the Stage. Let's Take It to the Stage was part invitation, part challenge, part promise and all funk. This was an album of cool music made by cool people for cool people, and while "cool" might not sound like a political statement, Let's Take It to the Stage successfully showcased the oldest political ploy in history – the concept of "us" vs. "them". To Funkadelic though, "us" was a potentially all inclusive concept, one that had room to embrace anybody who was down (on the one, of course) with the sounds of sex, spectacle and equality that Let's Take It to the Stage offered. Funkadelic guitar great Eddie Hazel. To that end, Funkadelic refused.

Let's Take It to the Stage' was Funkadelic's seventh album, and they'd go on to release plenty more throughout the '70s, '80s and beyond - but none of them would include the mystery man who contributed to 'Get Off Your Ass and Ja. "Over the years it's proven to be one of the most enduring songs from that record. I tried to find the guy and put him on another song, but he was gone. He never resurfaced," Clinton admitted
