Eddie Hazel – At Home (With Family)
In 1977, Hazel recorded a “solo” album, Game, Dames and Guitar Thangs, with support from other members of Parliament-Funkadelic, including vocals from The Brides of Funkenstein.
On December 23, 1992, Hazel died from internal bleeding and liver failure, after a long struggle with stomach problems related to alcoholism and drug abuse. “Maggot Brain” was played at his funeral.
Three collections of unreleased recordings have been released posthumously: The 1994 four-song EP Jams From the Heart (which Rhino Records later added as bonus material to its re-release of Game, Dames and Guitar Thangs), 1994’s Rest in P and 2006’s Eddie Hazel At Home.
