Here is the Nutz album, from I believe 1977. I posted it before but it was a vinyl rip and if memory serves correct (a 50/50 proposition at best) it was just the sides of the albums without splits. Well here I did all the work and split the tracks and reuploaded it for your enjoyment and by request. Kit has posted some post-Nutz in this blog previously also.
And as I have been slacking off on my personal favorites for a while, I was listening to this today and said, ah what the hell, I'll stick it up. This album is sort of a transitional one for Clinton & crew. He hasn't gone full on funk yet, there is still plenty of the psychy hard rock of old, and plenty of rockin' jams. Killer riffs abound from Eddie Hazel and the album is just loaded with killer hooks that drag you in. Every time I listen to Standing on the Verge of Getting It On, I walk around half the day singing and humming the songs, and the death threats for doing so don't even affect me. My personal favorite track is the pseudo-novelty song "Jimmy's Got a Little Bit of Bitch In Him" and in a way it's typical of what is so great about this album. The Eddie Hazel wah-wahed out riff, the humor, and the unstoppable groove that wavers betweeen what was and what was to come from this excellent band. Magnificent!!!
