Herbie Hancock Headhunters (1973)

Columbia
  • 1. Chameleon
  • 2. Watermelon Man
  • 3. Sly
  • 4. Vein Melter

This is THE definitive funk-jazz fusion album - truly jaw-droppingly good stuff that instantly set the standard against which other fusion musicians measured themselves!

This is one of those perfect albums that you will want to play from beginning to end, but the most famous tracks are probably the much-sampled awesome fifteen minute long Chameleon and the super-funky version of Watermelon Man!

And what great cover art! They don't make them like this anymore!
