About this item
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. With their roots in the late 60’s, this boundary-defying creative powerhouse was a source of inspiration during the worldwide explosion of rap and hip-hop in the 1980’s and 90’s.
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 lauded creations. Featuring keyboardist and songwriter Walter “Junie” Morrison, the album also captures Michael Hampton at the pinnacle of his development as a guitarist.
