Descriptions du produit

Premier album de cet exubérant combo de funk du début des années 70, ce disque paraît en 1973. Formé autour de l'ancien bassiste de Sly & The Family Stone, Larry Graham, le groupe combine les influences de cette formation fondatrice ainsi qu'un accent particulier porté sur les percussions, parfois proches de la démarche de Santana. On retrouve ici leur très bon premier single "Can You Handle It", mélange impeccable de funk, de soul et de rock qui est un des sommets de cet album paru chez Warner. --Florent Mazzoleni

Format: CD Achat vérifié
Le réjouissant titre d'ouverture a cappella ou le funk débridé et contagieux de "It ain't no fun to me" (reprise d'Al Green) vous rappellent la musique de Sly Stone et sa Family déjantée ? Rien d'étonnant, puisque cet opus, le 1er de Graham Central Station, paru en 1974, fut le premier de Larry Graham en tant que leader d'un nouvel irrésistible funk-band.
Après plusieurs années passées chez l'oncle Sly et une séparation pour le moins houleuse, L.G. s'est décidé à prendre le micro, et a réuni autour de lui quelques fines lames tels que le guitariste David "Dynamite" Vega, le claviériste Hershall "Happiness" Kennedy, le batteur Willie "Wild" Sparks, ou encore la polyvalente et pétillante Patryce "Chocolate" Banks (qui se déchaine dans les choeurs ainsi qu'à l'"Electric Funk Box"!).

C'est donc dorénavant Larry Graham qui mène le bal, comme en témoigne l'intro de basse furieusement slappée de "Hair". Cependant, le premier album de ce nouveau combo est chargé d'effluves funk, rock et soul souvent dignes des albums de Sly Stone.
Certes, le plus lent et mélancolique "We be's gettin down" fait quelque peu redescendre la pression, mais le train repart de plus belle avec "Tell me what it is" et son groove reptilien avec Freddie Stone et sa guitare en invités (on n'oublie pas les vieux copains !), puis "Can you handle it?" (pour le moins contrasté : des couplets façon "La Croisière s'amuse" sont bousculés par un refrain très pulsé).
"People", en revanche, est sans ambiguité LA ballade soul et militante pleinement assumée.

HASH(0x95ed5954) étoiles sur 5 Baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaad!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 2 novembre 2004

Format: CD
When I first heard the bassline for hair, I nearly climaxed!

HOTDAMNNNNNN! This was the fonkiest slap an' tickle, honky tonk, ghetto cruising, soul stealing, gospel hollering, doo wap scattin' disc I ever heard. I still put on 'We've been waiting' when I get up in the morning, cause it take me up to a sacred place, where no one can touch me. 'Aint no fun' is the finest of covers, 'Can you handle it?' has the funniest over the top top vocals, and ,Tell me what it is' takes us back down the funk box road to 'Riot goin on.'

Pure funk, pure soul, undiluted and raw. If only such bands thrived today...

Like most people, I knew all about Sly and the Family Stone long before I realized that his bass player broke out on his own. In fact, the first time I ever heard this album, I didn't know it was fronted by Larry Graham, I just thought, This mother-funky album sounds a bit like Sly, but... FUNKIER?! Could such a thing be possible? In my opinion, yes! Sly has a sometimes fun, sometimes soulfully oozing sound, with a healthy dose of funk, but this album is a fresh-cut slice of FONK. It's got a gospel flavour, but that popping bass and the freaked-out lyrics take it to a pop level. The vocal stylings by "Chocolate" (as she styles herself) are straight from the gut. It's great. The whole album is uneven, stylistically, and a couple of the cuts are not quite up to par (like maybe a 4.5 out of 5), but it hardly matters -- as a cohesive whole, it's just delectable. If you like Sly but want a churchier, more purely funky sound, this album is for you.

I am ripping songs into my iPod and got to the G's. My big sis introduced me to this album waaaaay back in 1976. We were Sly fans and of course we dug Larry. I still listen to this often. I am one to "keepsake". One of those keepsakes was the pricetag on the CD I am ripping. Anyone who lives in Austin TX knows Waterloo Records. "If they didn't have it they would order it". Well I ordered it alright in early the tune of $26.99 American (still have the price tag on it!). Funny to see it listed for 9 and change now! regrets...cause I was FUNKIFIED way back. If you enjoy funk ('aDelic...Bro Johnson...Sly...etc...GET THIS NOW!) And check out the orig "It Ain't No Fun To Me" Al Green off of "Let's Stay Together". Community is a good thing.

HASH(0x95b2f5ac) étoiles sur 5 The Man Who Put The "Pop" in Funk ! ! ! 22 octobre 2000
Par Eddie Landsberg - Publié sur
Format: CD
Larry Graham tells the story of how he was playing in church, and one day the drummer didn't show up, so to compensate for the absence of the kick and snare he started "popping" on his bass, and that's how it all started... Well, you won't find him at your local Baptist church revival these days... he became a Jehovah Witness, and last I heard was on tour with Prince, but if we slip back in time, Graham Central Station definitely was one of the hardest hitting funk bands to emerge on that WB label... he was wedged between Tower of Power, Sly and The Family Stone (of which he was a key member), Little Feet, and the Doobie Brothers (white boy but still kickin' funk, pardon the expression)... To this day "The Jam" (found on Ain't No Doubt About It) is a dance floor groove anthem. This album though is hard hitting... there's that Sly Stone influence, and *IMHO* a bit of "Southern Rock" type Boogie - - anotherwords, leaning more towards the Mandrill and War side of funk and less towards the space funk of George Clinton and Bootsy Collins. This album would definitely make a great follow up in your collection wedged between a bit of Sly and Bobby Womack and a few Mother's Finest and AWB albums... and maybe some COLD BLOOD. (Ain't No Doubt About It kind of crosses back to the other side of the tracks and has a more urban sound.)
Right on for Grahahm Central Station ! ! !

Par Garfield Miller - Publié sur

My first experience of listening to Graham central station was nearly 28 yeas ago,a generous cousin of mine who himself is a muscian gave me a album, release your self, from then I became captivated by the innovative style of Larry Graham, and his creative, slaptick funk, superlative bass sound,as well as his abilty to play almost any instrument on his LP. obviously I went on a search for all his album Graham Central station, this album made even more of an impact than his first.
This was a more heavey brand of funk, mixed with gospel soulful rendition, " we been waiting" "Hair" and "Ghetto" and "can you handle it" this was Larry Graham at is creative best,of course most would say that he carried on where Sly & Family Stone, failed to deliver, particularly after their mixed review album, " there's a riot goin" Larry Graham who will always be mentioned as former member of Sly& family Stone, Brought bass playing to a new level to all bass enthusiats, not only of course in America but to Bass Musicians in the United Kingdom, ask any well renowed bass muscians from the sixties, and seventies, whether Hard or Progressive rock not to mention Funk, Larry Graham's name will be mentioned as the innovative bass technician, who took bass playing to a new dimension,
Larry Graham astutely merged his musical brilliance with his range of deep mellow vocal chords to produce music at an era where musicianship was and still is appreciated, the fact that he has been associated with Prince ( formely known as the artist) tells us something of Larry Grahams appeal. although my album is not with me but some where in my parents basement, I will be purchasing Graham Central Station on CD, Unfortunately in England, music of rare quality are difficult to locate, but the world is a small place, when I visit America, I will make sure that I get Graham Central Station on CD. A MUST FOR ALL. remember the seed goes back to the Sly Stone era. Larry Graham has always been there. he took the mantle from Sly and has never looked back.
