    Funkadelic from 1970 was a bomb dropped all over rock and soul. No matter Hendrix, no matter James Brown, no matter the MC5, nobody had ever heard anything like this. This music was slower than sludge. (…) It was a great big fucking mess, and a lot of people didn’t know what to make of it. – Pitchfork

    Cover design by The Graffiteria, who designed lots of funk and soul album artwork in the 1970s. For this cover, Chwast Blimp is used white on black, and the spaces between the pattern lines are filled with a kind of rainbow.

    Back cover, with information set in Cooper Black.
