Mothership Connection is the fourth album by American funk band Parliament. Mothership Connection became
Parliament's first album to be certified gold and later platinum. The Library of Congress added the album to the
National Recording Registry in 2011, declaring "The album has had an enormous influence on jazz, rock and dance music." Continuing with its Respect The Classics campaign Universal Music Enterprises is reissuing this classic back on vinyl.

"Mothership Connection boasts a trio of hands-down classics — "P-Funk (Wants to Get Funked Up)," "Mothership Connection (Star Child)," "Give Up the Funk (Tear the Roof off the Sucker)" — that are among the best to ever arise from the funk era, each sampled and interpolated time and time again by rap producers; in particular, Dr. Dre pays homage to the former two on The Chronic (on "The Roach" and "Let Me Ride," respectively). The remaining four songs on Mothership Connection are all great also, if less canonical." — AllMusic
