Kidd Funkadelic vs Blackbyrd.
You don't need to choose from these versions btw, and we all know who will win, but feel free to post any good versions by parliament-funkadelic or good cover versions.
Probably best to restrict the embeds though.

Apparently Angel Bat Dawid played this at the Woodsist Fest last weekend — would love to hear that.

J Mascis also did 'Maggot Brain' on Mike Watt's Tugboat record with Bernie Worrell on keys.

Sorry I didn't vote in time. Of the two in the OP, I thought Blackbyrd was tighter and better crafted. The other one was more lyrical and aspired to the soul of the original but also just seemed to noodle a bit.

Would probably have voted for the Kidd, both were awesome though!
