I personally believe that Funkadelic were hitting a peak when they made 'Let's Take It To The Stage".

They had certainly perfected their mix of funk and psychedelic rock and
had it down to a science.

And in the pure funk-rock idion

"Good To Your Earhole","Stuffs And Things" and the unforgettable
"Get Off Your Ass And Jam" are the real deal!

The zany title track and the cryptic "Better By The Pound" are P-Funk basics with the latter featuring a brilliant percussion section.

And the whole shabang ends off with the dirty,dirty "Atmosphere"
,nothing but gospel organ and a filthy lyric-it so sacreligious I LOVE it!

"Be My Beach" is one of those psychedelic Bootsy ballads that just punches you out (at least it does me)

"No Head,No Backstage Pass" is trashier then anything I've
heard Aerosmith or Sabbath or ANY groovy hard rock band do!

"This Song Is Familiar" is yet more of Funkadelic at their
irreverant best-almost acapella gospel of sorts!

To me this is one Funkadelic album that got pretty overlooked at first but that the years have treated VERY kindly!

This is the kind of music that Digital Underground and Outkast have cut their teeth on and as it is it's still out and out FUNKY!

Not to mention how it steers out of the long winded jam band style that had become a Funkadelic clishe'.
