Cosmic Slop

(Westbound Records Inc.)

Release date: Dec 27, 2005

Cosmic Slop is an album originally released on Westbound Records in 1973. The songs can be divided, approximately in half, as being straightforward R&B-sounding love songs and deep, philosophical and political songs ("This Broken Heart" vs "Cosmic Slop"). Bernie Worrell's keyboards are of particular interest, as they foreshadow some of his future innovations in that instrument.

Cosmic Slop is the first Funkadelic album to feature artwork and liner notes by Pedro Bell, who assumed responsibility for the band's gate-fold album covers and liner notes until the band's collapse after 1981's The Electric Spanking of War Babies. Bell's liner notes to Cosmic Slop include small illustrations next to each song's name, preparing the listener by summarizing the song in a picture.
