Next to George Clinton himself, Eddie Hazel may be the man most responsible for the unearthly brilliance of early Funkadelic. Not only did Hazel’s mercurial, Hendrix-inspired guitar work elevate songs like “Maggot Brain” and “I Bet You” to a level of previously undreamed-of lysergic transcendence; his much-neglected gifts as a songwriter let him serve as a powerful creative foil to bandleader Clinton. By the time Hazel recorded his lone solo album, Game, Dames and Guitar Thangs, he no longer occupied a central role in the P-Funk empire and increasingly devoted time to session work and his escalating drug habit. Nonetheless, Game, Dames and Guitar Thangs proves to be a remarkably impressive document not only of Hazel’s formidable instrumental powers but of the strangely compelling atmosphere of decadence and claustrophobia that characterized P-Funk at its mid-‘70s peak. Not all of the selections here impress, but Hazel catches fire frequently enough to make this album a reliably engaging listen.
