Make no mistake about it - Funkadelic's "One Nation Under a Groove" is among the best funk discs ever recorded. I contains elements of the complex arrangements that made George, Bootsy and Bernie famous among today's hip-hop samplers (One Nation, Cholly, etc.). But, ONUAG adds that rock edge that make Funkadelic FUNKADELIC (Lunkmeataphobia, Maggot Brain, etc.). The Funkadelic sound is best summarized (lyrically and musically) on "Who Says a Funk Band Can't Play Rock?!"
Ok, why do you spend the extra coin on this Japanese import? There are three VERY important reasons:
1. This CD is mastered using 20-bit sampling which creates a smoother more rich sound as compared to the standard 16-bit recording available in the US. I have both CDs and the Japanese version is noticably cleaner, louder, and smoother.
2. The 12" Version of "One Nation Under A Groove" is included. This 16+ minute track is actually the A and B side of the original 12" vinyl issue from 1977. The first 11 minutes is the remix that has been reissued on vinyl but is impossible to find on CD. The last 5 minutes is the B-side which features a slamming extended guitar solo by Mike Hampton - a must have for every collector.
3. The packaging includes full size liner notes from the original LP. The US CD only reprints portions of the original LP art. Again, a must for the true funk fan.
Get this while you can, burn a copy, and put this one away. It may pay for itself in the future.

Wow. That is one word to describe this cd. It truly is unbelievable that they could make so many good records and help to spawn modern genres, and get virtually no credit. And if you think that nothing from today is influenced by Parliament/Funkadelic, then listen to this entire LP and write a nasty review about me. These guys were, and still are, the bomb. I swear, modern artists have all this technology and are overproduced and still can't come close to touching George and the boys. Whew!! Sorry, had to get that off my chest. This LP starts off with one the best dance songs in history (the title track). This song will have you dancing in no time, even if you can't dance. "Groovalegence" is a reggae inspired song, with some funk sprinkled in. It's pretty good. "Who Says a Funk Band" is definitely a cool track, that could put any modern "rock" band today to shame. And these guys weren't even a rock band. Another highlight is "Cholly." The bass sounds very similar to MOTHERSHIP CONNECTIONS's "Night of the Thumpasaurus Peoples". (That LP is the best funk album, by the way.) Of course, "Maggot Brain," while not originally appearing on this album, contains the best guitar solo of all time. (Mike Hampton plays it on this album, but it was Eddie Hazel who should get the credit for the great lick.) Not to mention, go ahead and get MAGGOT BRAIN cd, which is an early classic by Funkadelic. Getting off track again. So, to sum it up, this is a great LP, and it showcases a variety of sounds Funkadelic could give off. 100% P-Funk... THE BOMB!!

Another solid cd from Funkadelic. Definitely for the Funkateer young or old!!! Of course the title cut "One Nation Under A Groove" is great, eventhough it is the 7:28 version, but there are other definitive jams on here. "Groovallegiance" is real low down and funky!! "Cholly" is a solid groove and gets you ready to roll. "Who Says A Funk Band Can't Play Rock" is a serious cut that demands immediate attention from the listener, because Funkadelic throws down on this one. "Lunchmeataphobia" is a real funk/rock groove that will tickle your senses. "Maggot Brain" is simply marvelous, like always, plus it is the live, "...ain't illegal yet" version. This entire CD represents the masterful composition and artistry of George Clinton, Bernie Worrell, and Gary Shider. The lyrics are pure, the melodies are solid, and the beats are simply funky. All Funkateers must have this CD, otherwise their collection is incomplete until they possess it.

Format: Audio CD
When this album came out in the late summer of 1978,
it was highly anticipated because P-Funk was selling
out concert arenas all over the country, as well as
saturating black radio with plenty of good-n-funky product!
There was "Flashlight" (Parliament), "Bootzilla"
(Bootsy's Rubberband), "Disco To Go" (The Brides Of
Funkenstein), all released earlier that year and all
were big hits! Then, the single for the title track
"One Nation Under A Groove" came out in June or July
of '78, and it was unlike anything that had ever been
heard up to that time! It was an immediate house party,
block party and skating rink / dance floor filler!
A bunch of lesser funk bands of the day tried to come
out with their own copycat spins on this song.
(The Barkays "Move Your Boogie Body", Raydio "Hot Stuff"
and "For Those Who Like To Groove", and Herbie Hancock's
"Ready Or Not" to name a few!)

The other highlights of this album were: "Groovalliegence",
"Who Says A Funk Band Can't Play Rock",
"Cholly (Funk Gettin' Ready To Roll!)" and
Michael "Kidd Funkadelic" Hampton's scorching live
rendition of the early Funkadelic psychedelic-rock
classic "Maggot Brain", which was first played by
the late great Eddie "Maggot Brain" Hazel in 1971,
and has since become as essential to rock guitarists
as "Stairway To Heaven", "Kashmir" or
"Runnin' With The Devil" is!

**Honorable Mention** goes to the song
"P.M.S.B.W.P.E. Squad (The D.D. Chasers)" (LOL!!
