Can You Get to That

I've never been big on funk.  Yes there are a couple of standout artists that have made some timeless ablums(Sly, Curtis, etc.) but the genre just doesn't seem that pertinent to today's scene.  Every once and awhile you come across an old track that leaps out to you and makes you reconsider it's value.  Funkadelic has provided us with countless classics and George Clinton is now practically a living legend.  "Can You Get to That" is off their remarkable 1971 album Maggot Brain and this gospel-style piece fits perfectly between the album's numerous giant funk grooves.  Profound, catchy, and bold.  Can you get to that?
