    According to legend, George Clinton told Eddie Hazel during the recording session to imagine he had been told his mother was dead, then for the second half of the song finding out it wasn't true. The result was the 10-minute guitar solo for which Hazel is most fondly remembered by many music critics and fans.

    Though several other musicians began the track playing, Clinton soon realized the power of Hazel's solo and faded them out so that the focus would be on Hazel's guitar. Critics have described the solo as "lengthy, mind-melting" and the ending as "an emotional apocalypse of sound."

    The entire track was recorded in one take.
