Hardcore Jollies is the ninth studio album by the funkbandFunkadelic, released on October 29, 1976 by Warner Bros. Records, their first album to be issued on a major label. It is dedicated to "the guitar players of the world." Originally, the first side of the album was called "Osmosis Phase 1" and the second side was "Terribitus Phase 2." Hardcore Jollies was released one month after Funkadelic's last album for Westbound Records, Tales of Kidd Funkadelic, which was made up of outtakes recorded at the same sessions.
Drums: Jerome Brailey, Tiki Fulwood on "Soul Mate", Buddy Miles on "Comin' Round the Mountain"
This would be the last album to feature Fuzzy Haskins, Calvin Simon, and Grady Thomas. They would leave because of money and other personal issues. Glen Goins would leave the band after this album as well.
This track is a live version of the 1973 song from the Funkadelic album of the same name and it was recorded at a rehearsal for the 1976 P-Funk Earth Tour (see Mothership Connection Newberg Session). This version uses a vocal introduction that was removed from the 1973 studio version, and it features prominent guitar solos by Michael Hampton. This version is widely considered to be the best early example of Hampton's guitar work.
