AllMusic Review by

The amount of Funkadelic compilations compiled of tracks circa 1976-1981 (1976's Hardcore Jollies, 1978's One Nation Under a Groove, 1979's Uncle Jam Wants You, and 1981's The Electric Spanking of War Babies) is quite staggering. Especially after the dawn of the 21st century, as such compilations as Funk Gets Stronger, Funkadelic Collection, Vol. 1 and Vol. 2, Under a Groove, and Cosmic Funkers (among others) all appeared. The latter title turns out to be a double-disc set, which spotlights on such Funkadelic standouts as "One Nation Under a Groove" (as a 12" mix), as well as "Hardcore Jollies," "If You Got Funk, You Got Style," "Cosmic Slop," and "Cholly (Funk Getting Ready to Roll)." There's no question that the material here is top-notch, but how many different ways can you release the same material (all within the space of only a few years)?
