FOR CONTRACTUAL REASONS THIS RELEASE IS NOT AVAILABLE FOR SALE IN NORTH AMERICA.

Continuing our reissue programme of classic Funkadelic albums packaged in deluxe CD mediabooks, 1979's Uncle Jam Wants You was the band’s eleventh studio LP.  More militant in tone than its predecessor One Nation Under A Groove which essayed a Funk utopia, Uncle Jam’s 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.

Reproduced here in a deluxe mediabook, 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).  Referencing the“Uncle Sam Wants You!” US Army recruitment poster, the sleeve depicts George Clinton aka Dr Funkenstein in a Huey Newton Black Panthers pose.  Comprehensive liner notes by John Masouri complete the package.
