AllMusic Review by

The Early Years is a repackaging of all of Parliament's recordings for Invictus Records, including their 1970 album Osmium and three bonus tracks -- "Fantasy is Reality," "Loose Booty" and "Unfinished Instrumental." Parliament hadn't quite refined their sound on Osmium, but the record showed promise, and it's interesting for hardcore fans. For any fan who hasn't picked the album up, this is a good way to add it, as well as the rarities, to your collection.
