1. The Parliaments ‘n’ Funkadelic Go Black to The Future in ’69 (VIDEO).

    Simply put, this is a great moment in music history (and television, too). George Clinton , looking like a punk rock Ol’ Dirty Bastard, leads a P-Funk revolution (look for Fuzzy Haskins sharing lead vocals and Eddie Hazel on guitar) on the Boston-based TV show Say Brother back in July of 1969. If you’ve never seen this, you must as it comes complete with nods to Sly & The Family Stone, Stevie Wonder, and even a Jimi Hendrix-esque climax thrown into a mix that includes but not limited to a raw-as-hell “Testify” and an early take of “What Is Soul.”
