Deluxe facsimile edition of original 1978 UK pressing in gatefold sleeve - Pedro Bell's original album artwork fully restored + lyrics on both inner sleeves - Illustrated booklet with in-depth sleeve notes by author & music journalist John Masouri.
Regarded by many as the greatest funk album of all time, 'One Nation Under A Groove' was recorded at United Sound in Detroit & included a live track from their concert appearance at the Monroe Civic Center in Louisiana in April 1978. The band's tenth studio album released during September 1978 was also their most commercial & gave the band their first platinum disc.
The iconic title track was an international hit and a US R&B No.1. With lead guitarists Michael Hampton & Eddie Hazel dazzling, the personification of funk Bootsy Collins on bass, Bernie Worrell & Walter "Junie" Morrison's keyboard wizardry & many more, the album was produced by the genius of George Clinton. Regularly ranked at or near the top of various "best album" lists, 'One Nation Under A Groove' is mastered for vinyl in a deluxe facsimile gatefold sleeve with booklet & lyric inner sleeves, all housed in a protective PVC sleeve. The albums' original bonus songs are now included on a second 12-inch "Special EP" which adds the rare 11-minute "Disco Mix" of 'One Nation Under A Groove' to replicate the original first UK pressing from 1978.
