Funkadelic- I Can Get To That, Yes Sir

I have recently discovered early Funkadelic through the joy that is Spotify. I have a couple of their later poppy disco LPs, and was never that fussed, but their early recordings truly are something special, a fusion of deep funk, hendrix-style wigouts, cosmic psycho-babble and white country-stylings. Check out Can You Get To That from the album Maggot Brain (1971):

Sounds like something from 'Exile On Main Street'... gorgeous countrified soul music. Who can resist those female backing vocals. The band Sleigh Bells must also love it, as they pinched the intro for this song, a real highlight from their excellent debut album Treats
