Herbie Hancock and the Headhunters changed ‘the game' fusing Jazz with Funk to create a genre now known as Jazz Funk, Fusion or Space Funk. Of course there were other inflential Cats but the 1973 Headhunters LP, (Played HEAVILY at the home of themusicologist throughout the 70's, along with LP's by cats such as Curtis Mayfield, Bobby Womack, Bill Withers, the Heptones, the Wailers, Dillinger,the Doors, Ian Dury and Stephen Stills), was a catalyst. I was 4/5 years old when it was introduced in our house on release and it blew my tiny mind.
The cover alone with its central image a combination of a reel to reel tape head demagnetiser and an African mask, it's presence called upon in times of danger during epidemics or at funeral ceremonies, was an inspiration let alone the outstanding music recorded and the t shirt was designed and produced almost 40 years later in tribute to that LP, the music and the memory.
