George Clinton and his musical cohorts of Parliament-Funkadelic wouldn't just indulge in fanciful, funk-drenched "spacy talk" in the recording studio or while in concert. They'd routinely converse in it wherever they'd be gathered. Some of Clinton's imaginative creations would gallivant around the ocean bottom (The Motor Booty Affair), so the word "deep" figured prominently in their vocabulary. It also was a valuable term in the case of their hits. Written and produced by George Clinton, "(Not Just) Knee Deep" dug into the number one R&B spot for three weeks and went to number 77 pop in the fall of 1979. The Uncle Jam Wants You LP went gold, holding at number two R&B for three weeks, peaking at number 18 pop, and yielding the title track single.
