Product Notes

In the Funkadelic Vinyl Bundle you two of the biggest Albums from the 1970's by Funkadelic. You Hardcore Jollies the ninth studio Funkadelic album released 1976 and you get Uncle Jam Wants You the eleventh studio album by Funkadelic from 1979. In the 1970's CDs weren't out yet and funk was king. The Funkadelic Vinyl Bundle will bring you back to George Clinton and Funkadelis hey-day.

HARDCORE JOLLIES (LP)

Masterminded by the larger-than-life figure of George Clinton, Funkadelic was a key component of his influential P-Funk empire. Funkadelic's unique combination of Rock, Psychedelia and Soul led to the band to crossing over into the pop mainstream and gaining an international following, to become one of the most important groups in the evolution of funk.

'Hardcore Jollies' [US R&B No.12] was Funkadelic's ninth studio album and their first on Warner Bros Records. Released in October 1976 and dedicated to "the guitar players of the world", it followed hard on the heels of their last album for indie Westbound, which comprised outtakes from the same recording sessions. 'Hardcore Jollies' was also the last Funkadelic album to feature three original members of The Parliaments, vocalists Fuzzy Haskins, Grady Thomas and Calvin Simon. Arguably lighter in tone that earlier outings, way-out goofiness still abounds with standout moments including 'If You Got Funk, You Got Style' and 'Soul Mate'.

Spawning the singles 'Comin' Round The Mountain' [US R&B No.54] and 'Smokey' [US R&B No.96], the album also includes a live remake of 1973's 'Cosmic Slop', from the album of the same name. Recorded during rehearsals for 1976's P-Funk Earth Tour, this version features a vocal introduction dropped from the 1973 studio cut and features prominent guitar solos by Michael Hampton, widely considered to be among the best of his early work. Although uncredited, 'Hardcore Jollies' also features guitarist Eddie Hazel. Artist Pedro Bell delivers the band's trademark wacky sleeve art, whilst the accompanying short story should raise a smile or two.

UNCLE JAM WANTS YOU

Masterminded by the larger-than-life figure of George Clinton, Funkadelic was a key component of his influential P-Funk empire. Funkadelic's unique combination of Rock, Psychedelia and Soul led to the band to crossing over into the pop mainstream and gaining an international following, to become one of the most important groups in the evolution of funk.

'Uncle Jam Wants You' was the band's eleventh studio LP released in 1979. More militant in tone than it's predecessor 'One Nation Under A Groove' which described a Funk utopia, 'Uncle Jam's' stated mandate was to "rescue dance music from the blahs".

The album features a 15-minute version of what was to become the band's last hit single '(Not Just) Knee Deep', an edited version of which made no.1 in the US R&B chart. Uncle Jam... had a huge influence on the hip-hop scene, notably the legendary Uncle Jam's Army.

This was Funkadelic's first album since 1972 not to feature a cover design by artist Pedro Bell (although he did contribute to the interior design). A reference to the "Uncle Sam Wants You!" US Army recruitment poster, the sleeve depicts George Clinton aka Dr Funkenstein in a Huey Newton Black Panthers pose.
