Sounds like something I need to hear.
Hey Jax, here's my take:

MF changed alot from record to record, due to Epic and Atlantic's trying to find them a larger audience. They were just too funky for AOR (outside of the Southeast) and too rockin' for RnB...

BTW, they're not really a black rock band per se. They've always been a mix of black and white in both personel and style (and the fanatic following they attracted). Think Sly & Family Stone plus an incredible female vocalist, very english rock/ funk R&B guitarist, and Bonhamish drummer. Very different. Very original. They lived and rehearsed together in a big house in Atlanta, and seemed to be as much a 'family' as they were a 'band.'

I've seen hundreds (maybe thousands) of concerts over the years, and I swear, I've never seen any band rock as hard, or as tight, and put out as much 'pure energy' as these guys did in their heyday. Every person in the audience would be drenched by the end of the night and leave walking 3 feet off the ground with **** eating grins on their faces. I loved taking people (who had never heard of them) to see their shows, and watching their jaws drop when MF hit the stage!
