Deluxe two CD mediabook edition including a bonus CD that contains the tracks from the EP that accompanied the original 1978 album from the Funk legends. 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. 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 it's title track spawned an international hit. 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.

"The 12" Version of "One Nation Under A Groove" is included."
Well, that's what the posted review said. But I didn't notice that the review was written April 13, 2001--yet, it was posted beneath the 2014 re-release of the product. Already having an earlier version of this disc, the only reason I purchased it was for the 12" version of 'One Nation..'.
So, if you're looking for the previously unavailable 12" version of the song--sorry to day, it's not here.
Why they couldn't include it here, I have no Idea; especially since there's at least three other previously re-released versions of this disc,
What a waste.
I think this product is a re-issue of an item that was originally a double LP vinyl. The music is outstanding. The guitar work alone is worth the usual price of the product, which is about $12. The lyrics show the political side of Funkadelic as it should be shown.
The problem is the disks. The product description says both 4 disks and 1 disk. In fact, the version I got has 2 disks. The first disk has about 6 songs and is about 40 minutes long. The second disk has 3 songs and is 17 minutes long. All of the material could easily have been fit onto 1 disk without any distortion or editing. In this respect, you overpay at the usual price. The set that I got was done by Charly, usually from the UK and Europe. Charly usually does a good job, so I don't know what is going on here.
If you also got 2 disks and one disk had only 17 minutes, then please tell Amazon and ask them for clarity in the product description.
Despite feeling annoyed at the wrong product description and at getting a disk with only 17 minutes of music, I kept the set. The guitar work alone is that good.
The combination of very good music with bad product organization and presentation results in the 3 stars.
Space age and down and dirty George Clinton unites many forms and shapes. Please note that in the liner notes are some pornographic-graphics painted by Genius artist Pedro Bell that may be too freak-nasty for the young maggot brains.
I could not find this on iTunes or amazon mp3 so I got the cd and it is everything that I remember the album being.
