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.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Tragedy of Funkadelic Proportions August 22, 2002
Format:Audio CD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars A CULT FAVORITE February 24, 2000
Format:Audio CD
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"!

5.0 out of 5 stars Oops! amazon has the wrong titles listed for this one October 5, 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Raw and WILD Funk That Last February 20, 2006
Format:Audio CD
'Cosmic Slop' was the first Funkadelic CD I ever purchased.I was 16 and well aclimated to Parliamnt and George Clinton's solo album 'You Should'nt've Bit Fish'.The minute I laid eyes on this artwork I knew I was in for a funky good time.But was I ever underestimating things.The minute I started this up in my old Sony portable disk player 'Nappy Dugout' blew me away with it's raw,rhythmic funkiness.This album in particular (and the opener) owes alot of 'Payback'-period James Brown and the first school of funk-with Clinton's acid rock twists.Especially on "Trash A Go Go' Funkadelic give creedence to their name as one of the first all African American rock band.But funk is a premium and they never EVER water it down.One the rocking title cut and "You Can't Miss What You Can't Measure' the band push forward with honesty and great social insights into how the black community feels internaly.Kind of like James Brown and Sly Stone blended together for the black power movement.Those with an open mind to raw honesty and wisdom will not only be able to get this music but can boogie to it too.On "March Of The Witches Castle" George Clinton delivers one of his patended elder wiseman dialogs he is so good at.And Eddie Hazel is a GENIOUS on guitar-only recently accepted as such in the rock world next to Hendrix,Santana,Tommy Bolin and all other acid-rock funk guitar gods.The reality of life for African American's living in urban area's circa 1973 could be very unpleasant and these guys aren't about to lie about it but the story will be told on the booty shaking funky dancefloor if they had anything to do with it.After hearing this and coming to this realization I dug up all the other Funkadelic CD's-all of which are excellent.
