A Joyful Process - America Eats Its Young - PFunk


Blog friend and Vancouver legend, Dusty Doug, sent us that flyer this week. I was unaware there was a Parliament Funkadelic link to the Manson saga. Bernie Worrell is the connection if I had to guess but a guess is all I have to offer. Could be George, too. Definitely willing to learn. 

Ohio is iced-in today. Soup and music are my plans. Here's the studio track of A Joyful Process from the 1972 Funkadelic album, America Eats Its Young.

I wouldn't even say it's a connection to the Manson saga. The only connection is the one created by The Church of Scientology and Ed Sanders.

True. Good point.

Here's a cool article I found several years ago; all about "Maggot Brain"-era Funkadelic and the Process.

In the documentary “Sympathy For the Devil, “ Funkadelic was the house band for the Process. If you can find a copy of the documentary do it is well worth the watch. It is much different from the usual information on the Process. Does anyone know is Paul Crockett still alive?

I was at a Black Rock Coalition meeting in the early 90s. There was a guy there that was in obviously bad shape, walking around barefoot in ratty clothes. He wasn't saying much, just sitting there. Someone whispered to me "that's Eddie Hazel". He died not long after. Billy "Bass" Nelson was also at that meeting.

I keep asking if people are still alive and am wondering if White Rabbit is still around?

Hi, Beauders. I have no idea. Larry, if you are here, say hello.
