Funkadelic Uncle Jam Wants You Limited Heavyweight Vinyl LP

Continuing Charly’s reissue programme of classic Funkadelic albums faithfully reproduced on heavyweight vinyl, ‘Uncle Jam Wants You’ was the band’s eleventh studio LP first released in 1979.
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 blahs”. The album features a 15-minute version of what was to become the band’s last hit single ‘(Not Just) Knee Deep’, an edited version of which made US R&B No.1. Uncle Jam... had a huge influence on the hip-hop scene, notably the legendary Uncle Jamm’s Army.
This was Funkadelic’s first album since 1972 not to feature a cover design by artist Pedro Bell (although he did contribute to the interior design). 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
