One of my finds in Illinois, Herbie Hancock’s ‘Headhunters’ is one of the funkiest albums I’ve ever heard, and a classic in my book.
I first bought this album in November of 2005. It was the remastered cd and my first taste of Hancock’s funky side. I’d gone to an 8 hour Hazmat training session in South Bend and stopped at a Borders on the way home to pick up something new. ‘Headhunters’ filled my void and it’s been a favorite ever since. Finding a first pressing of this funked-out classic was the icing on my vinyl hunting cake.
