1LP Vinyl – SEW 010

When Funkadelic's self-titled debut album came out in late February 1970, it sounded like bits and pieces of all the music that influenced the group. But it also sounded nothing at all like anything that came before it.

That was George Clinton's intention all along. It was also an accident. And it's indicative of the P-Funk mothership flight log: From its maiden voyage and the Funkadelic and Parliament split to the peak period at the end of the '70s and their eventual breakup and merging into a profitable touring entity, everything and nothing went as planned.
