Heavyweight vinyl reissue LP on Charly inc. bonus 7″ (CHARLYL132)
Orig US LP on Warners with clipped spine (BSK3209)
Heavy weight vinyl reissue of Funkadelic’s all-time great album replicating the original gatefold sleeve art packaged together with a bonus 7″ vinyl EP.
Masterminded by the larger-than-life figure of George Clinton, Funkadelic was a key element of his highly influential P-Funk empire. With their unique combination of rock, psychedelia and soul music, Funkadelic crossed over into the pop mainstream and gained an international following, becoming one of the most important groups in the evolution of funk.
Regarded by many as the greatest funk album of all time, One Nation Under A Groove was recorded at United Sound in Detroit and includes a live track from their concert appearance at the Monroe Civic Center in Louisiana in April 1978. The band’s tenth studio album, One Nation… was also their most commercial and its title track spawned an international hit (and a US R&B No.1).
Renowned for their wacky, cartoon-inspired artwork this is one of Funkadelic’s most memorable and critically lauded creations. Featuring keyboardist and songwriter Walter “Junie” Morrison, the album also captures Michael Hampton at the pinnacle of his development as a guitarist.
