Editorial Reviews

This classic Funkadelic album (from 1973) has been remastered from its original master tapes for the first time in 15 years. This is the first album with Gary Shider and marks the beginning of the tighter, more commercial, Funkadelic albums of the later Westbound years. It includes a number of dance floor favorites such as the title track Cosmic Slop and the much-sampled Nappy Dugout. This 2005 CD includes the full nine tracks of the original album plus the substantially different single edit of the title track. The in-depth sleeve notes by funk expert and series consultant Dean Rudland include details of the history of the band and this recording, including information taken from an exclusive interview with original Parliamentarian Fuzzy Haskins. The CD booklet includes a full color reproduction of Pedro Bell's classic album art and contemporary adverts, pictures and memorabilia. Westbound U.S.

Between 1970 and 1975 Funkadelic released seven albums on the Westbound record label. All of them are essential. The fifth album, 1973's "Cosmic Slop", is as strong, soulful and funky as any other from this seminal period.
That "Cosmic Slop" didn't end up a cosmic flop is a testament to George Clinton's unparalleled skill as a producer. In 1972, after the release of "America Eats Its Young", things were falling apart for Funkadelic. Ace lead guitarist Eddie Hazel was incarcerated for drug possession and assault, bassist Billy Nelson quit and rhythm guitarist Lucius Ross overdosed on LSD and speed, leaving him incapacitated. Funkadelic essentially lost three of its founding members right before recording for "Cosmic Slop" began.
Funkadelic, though technically a group, was essentially a George Clinton "thang." Determined to make "Cosmic Slop" Clinton reincarnated the band. Nelson and Ross, though founding members, proved dispensable. Hazel was missed (but will return on later albums.) Gary Shider, a guitar virtuoso in his own right, takes his lead, contributing incredible, soulful vocals as well. And keyboardist Bernie Worrell comes into his own. In fact, a cobbled together Funkadelic proved as solid and formidable as any previous incarnation.
"Cosmic Slop" is brimming with classic P-funk essentials. "Nappy Dugout", replete with whistles and duck calls, starts the album in typical Funkadelic style. "You Can't Miss..." sounds like a lost "Maggot Brain" single (a good thing.) "March to the Witch's Castle" is, in my opinion, the saddest, darkest, most honest song ever written about the Vietnam War. (A masterpiece maybe?) "Let's Make It Last" is transcendent and soulful. "Cosmic Slop" is a classic, 'nuff said. "No Compute" sounds like, well, country-funk.

This has to be one of the most underated Funkadelic albums never gained any real chart status when was released in '73.. but this is still one of the most interesting albums they have put out dealing with such issues drug addiction ( Trash - A- GO-GO) a brutual rock track.. the very eerie vibe of March to the Witch Castle a recount of Viet War.. to the 70's soul of You cant miss what you measure.. To the slice of life every day hustle of Comsic Slop.. this is a great album.. Have to put this on the list of their best albums.. PICK IT UP REAL FUNK FANS

When I look back at much I've spent on Funkadelic CDs and LPs, I have to say that this is most likely the best investment.
"Cosmic Slop" album released that was supposedly remastered. Yeah. Right. I picked up this one, played it, and was amazed at the the clarity, sharpness, and God knows what else. As a consumer I want quality and I got it. Whoever took this album and the songs, cleaned them up thoroughly then put them back down again deserves a day off. I heard instruments that I did not hear before. To whomever, I say "Thanks"!

Beeware, newcomers to the Funk...the tracks listed above for "Cosmic Slop" are actually the tracks on 1972's "America Eats its Young," a delectable and somewhat more acid-rocky/Sly-ly influenced double album adventure typical of earlier Funkadelic jaunts. There is much sharp positivity and cunning linguistal social commentary on "America," as one might guess from its title. I'd give it four and a half stars. Minus one half for continuity, but plus four-and-one-half for brilliant power to move the mind and hips.
"Cosmic Slop" itself is one of the bestestt and most funksome albums of the heretofor mentioned funketeer troupe known as Funnnkadelic. It marks the premier of Pedro Bell's crazy cover antics, as well as Funkadelic's finding its signature sound which streched throughout its mid-seventies galacto-sloppcontinuum. This album has a pace of lightness and humor, save for the beautiful and more tragic "Cosmic Slop" anthem itself as well as the dark narration of "March to the Witches CAstle". Tracks tend to be short and insidious in their funkfection. An excellent purchase for any funkateer to be, or even the casual funk cruiser.

"Cosmic Slop" is an unusual moment in the band's history. While it has elements of the radical social commentary and acid-influenced psychedelia of the earliest Funkadelic records and certainly some of the more danceable fare that was just around the corner, it is really not a part of either phase. Indeed, this album at times sounds like a different band altogether, if not for the recognizable voices. While it is not considered a definitive or important Funkadelic album (unlike say "Maggot Brain", "Standing On The Verge Of Getting It On" and "One Nation Under A Groove", the three critically acknowledged essential albums) it is nonetheless an excellent one. The half-speed bounce of "Nappy Dugout" is a terrific head-bobbin opener and "You Can't Miss What You Can't Measure" is both sweet and hard-rocking all at once ("Sting" Ray Davis's booming bass vocal is sure to elicit a grin from even the unfunkiest listeners)... Similar, surprisingly straight ahead soul songs are featured in the southern-tinged "Can't Stand The Strain" and a rare cover (the ballad "This Broken Heart", soulfully sung by Calvin Simon). While these songs are somewhat un-funkadelic, they are great tracks and they are performed with passion and played with unforced honesty, no irony or sarcasm. The title track is the only song from the album that was consistently played in later, more commercially successful times for the band. Gary Shider provides a sweet falsetto vocal to a song that recalls the band's earlier socio/political bent, dealing with a single mother forced to into prostitution by the lack of opportunities around her. It is a very moving song, complete with sighing, wailing guitars (courtesy of Shider and Ron Bykowski).Read more ›
