This is a really good re-issue. Sounds nice and vibrant. I'm glad I picked this up, its very cheap at the moment, around £13.99. Recommended

'Making Osmium may not have been a fully satisfying experience, but the cover photo is one of my most vivid memories. We shot it up in Toronto. I wore a sheet and nothing else, and everyone was decked out in hippie regalia. What I remember most is how much acid we were doing at the time. We were eating lots of soul food and steaks, and when you eat that kind of food and drop acid, you start tripping on the meat. You see it pulsating, like it's still alive. That was freaky, but what was worse was how it ran hell on our stomachs. They call LSD acid because that's exactly what it is. It blows up your digestive system and blows your ass out. We spent more time in the bathroom in those days than you could imagine, and there were hemorrhoids everywhere. And while the acid may have given us second sight and opened our inner eye, it didn't affect our sense of smell, unfortunately. We could smell perfectly and that shit was horrible. The shoot took place in a park, in a flower garden, and it was so hot that the sweat and salt was getting in everyone's ass. Motherfuckers were crying like babies. And there were bees in there because it was a flower garden, so if it was a movie instead of a still photo, you could see people flinching and swatting, scared as shit.'

the camera itself was on acid when it snapped the front cover.

Seminal fancy-dress funk from the originators of P-Funk and all-round crazy psychedelic party people Parliament. This album begins the journey into P-Funk and launched the glitzy careers of George Clinton and Bootsy Collins. Cosmic.
