180-gram remastered edition
Funkadelic's politically provocative 11th studio album from 1979
More militant in tone than its predecessor One Nation Under A Groove, which described a Funk utopia, Uncle Jam's stated mandate was to, "Rescue dance music from the blah."
A reference to the "Uncle Sam Wants You!" U.S. Army recruitment poster, the sleeve depicts George Clinton (aka Dr Funkenstein) in a Huey Newton Black Panthers pose.
The album contains a 15-minute plus version of the band's last significant hit "(Not Just) Knee Deep." A veritable Funkathon, by Lord!
