Mothership Connection is the fourth album by American funk band Parliament, released on December 15, 1975 on Casablanca Records. This concept album of P Funk mythology is usually rated as one of Parliament’s best. Mothership Connection was the first P-funk album to feature Maceo Parker and Fred Wesley, who had left The J.B.’s, James Brown’s backing band. “Mothership Connection” became Parliament’s first album to be certified gold and later platinum. The Library of Congress added the album to the National Recording Registry in 2011, declaring “[t]he album has had an enormous influence on jazz, rock and dance music.”
