America Eats Its Young is the fourth album (a double album) by Funkadelic, released in 1972. This was the first album to include the whole of the House Guests, including Bootsy Collins, Catfish Collins, Chicken Gunnels, Rob McCollough and Kash Waddy. It also features the Plainfield based band U.S. (United Soul), which consisted of guitarist Garry Shider and bassist Cordell Mosson, on most of the tracks. Unlike previous Funkadelic albums, America Eats Its Young was recorded in Toronto, Canada, and in the UK. The original vinyl version contained a poster illustrated by Cathy Abel. The bottom of the poster features the first widespread appearance of the Funkadelic logo, which would later appear on the cover of the album Standing On The Verge Of Getting It On.

  1. I wish I had taken to heart the lyrics of WAKE UP!! This album is a underrated classic- versatility and command of performance take the lead!!! It storms right out of the gate with YOU HIT THE NAIL ON THE HEAD!!!! Too much.

  2. On Maggot Brain , Eddie Hazel played the most beitfauul tribute ever to the genius of Jimi Hendrix, who had just passed away recently. It could even be argued that he actually outpassed his master, something I would never say of anyone else among the vast crowd of Hendrix heirs and imitators. Too bad he became less and less audible on the subsequent Funkadelic albums, because he really pulled the whole band higher to unknown spheres.
