Over a period of 12 years from their Westbound debut album to the release of 1981’s “The Electric Spanking Of War Babies”, Funkadelic, piloted by George Clinton, redefined the way that black music was recorded and presented. They scored 20 R&B chart hit singles and a dozen chart albums, but their influence was far greater. They brought rock music into the black music charts and demanded to be treated like a rock band and in the years following their demise they have become treated as musical greats, by the sampling hip hop hordes and by the rock music establishment.
“Standing On The Verge” includes the two number one R&B singles ‘One Nation Under A Groove’ and ‘(Not Just) Knee Deep’, sample favourites such as ‘I’ll Bet You’ and ‘Undisco Kidd’ and dancefloor monsters such as ‘Cosmic Slop’ and ‘Better By The Pound’. We have also taken the time to shine a light on more contemplative masterpieces such as ‘Sexy Ways’, the wonderful instrumental ‘A Joyful Process’, and the incredible ten minute-plus epic ‘Maggot Brain’. Their early 1969 single ‘Whatever Makes My Baby Feels Good’ is included - the first time it has ever been reissued.
