Funkadelic Uncle Jam Wants You CD
For contractual reasons this release is not available for sale in North America
 
George Clinton's 1979 classic, designed to 'rescue dance music from the blahs'.
 
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!
