"Free Your Mind... and Your Ass Will Follow is the second studio album by American funk band Funkadelic, released in July 1970 on Westbound Records.[2] The inspiration for this album was, according to George Clinton, an attempt to "see if we can cut a whole album while we're all tripping on acid."[2]"

You mean Free Your Mind...? I think the music is awesome, especially the freak out that is the title track. :)

Ha - shirt for proof, nice! Yeah, 'Free Your Mind' is certainly not my favorite ('Take it to the Stage' is!) but I still love it. :mrgreen:

Hi,

I just don't like the idea that no one can create music, paint a picture, write a novel, or a poem, or come up with some other artistic something or other ... by being ripped.

I know I wrote many poems inder the influence in my younger days, and while I enjoyed that, the biggest learning from that was that there was a freedom of expression that did not have any "conditions" or "designs", and it all just flowed ... and flowed ...

Of all the music scnes out there, none of them had more drugs involved in them, along with the honesty of the folks involved, than the "krautrock" folks in Germany. There are some far out interviews with Helmut Hattler and Mani Neumeier and others, that discuss these things ... but in the end, what one ended up with was some difficult stuff ... one listen to Amon Duul 2's Yeti ... and it is an "improvisation" and the first thing you say is ... ohh my gawd ... how did they do that? or the simplicity of the quiet space in the Marilyn Monroe cut in Dance of the Lemmings ...

I can't help thinking that we're being way too medicated and screwed up by religious and social views, to even know what the whole experience is all about ... in the first place ... and because of "fame" and "publicity", many artists do not discuss those days, or are honest about their livelihood in those days ... and one day you come across Miss Pamela's book, and she is now the pariah of ... naught ... nothing happened ... it was all very innocent.

I'm not looking for sordid anything ... but the person who denies his/her inner experience is already dead! You can not see yourself and ignore the side you don't want to see in the mirror right in front of you ... ripped or not ... there is a person there.

Frank had too much to lose to get busted, and he knew it. But then, he got setup in the earlier days, and already knew that the whole thing was just as dishionest in the other side. But anyone of us could easily say, that the best "visual" and "movie" on acid, ever done, and the music FITS, would be "200 Motels" ... and I think that Frank had seen enough of it, to know ... I didn't need it to create music!

As don Juan told Carlos, when asked if the dope was necessary, don Juan says ... "of course not you idiot! But we had to do something to shut you up long enough so you could check out something else! And learn!"

My only concern, is that we are afraid to learn! The rest is not an issue!
