Uncle Jam Wants You Funkadelic Vinyl

 

Funkadelic's politically provocative eleventh studio album from 1979
 
2014 reissue on heavyweight vinyl in a reproduction gatefold sleeve.
 
---------
 
More militant in tone than its predecessor One Nation Under A Groove, which described a Funk utopia, Uncle Jam's stated mandate was to, 'Rescue dance music from the blah'. 
 
A reference to the 'Uncle Sam Wants You!' US Army recruitment poster, the sleeve depicts George Clinton (aka Dr Funkenstein) in a Huey Newton Black Panthers pose.  
 
The album contains a 15-minute plus version of the band's last significant hit (Not Just) Knee Deep. A veritable Funkathon, by Lord!
