Funkadelic The Electric Spanking Of War Bab CD
For contractual reasons this release is not available for sale in North America
 
The last in a decade-long run of Top 50 R&B albums, The Electric Spanking Of War Babies was the Funkadelic's twelfth studio LP and featured several players new to the Funkadelic line-up, notably Sly Stone. 
With its allusions to the Vietnam War and US imperialism, to paraphrase critic Robert Christgau, Clinton reached, "Into the disgusting depths of his drug-addled mind," for a project that was destined to court controversy from the start, not least for its uncompromising sleeve art which Warner Bros. demanded be changed.  
 
Originally conceived as a double album, many tracks saw release on Clinton's later P-Funk projects. 
 
Described by Christgau as, "The solidest, weirdest chunk of P-Funk since one nation gathered under a groove," and arguably better for having been edited down to a single album, The Electric Spanking... spawned two hit singles.
