"Cosmic Slop (1973) was the first Funkadelic album to feature artwork and liner notes by Pedro Bell, who assumed responsibility for the band's gate-fold album covers and liner notes until the band's collapse after 1981's The Electric Spanking of War Babies. Bell's liner notes to Cosmic Slop include small illustrations next to each song's name, summarizing the song in a picture." --Sholem Stein

The Electric Spanking of War Babies is the final album of Funkadelic's golden era. The title is an allusion to the Vietnam War and baby boomers. It features many relative newcomers to the P-Funk mob, many of whom would remain employed by George Clinton on future releases under his own name or under the name George Clinton & the P-Funk All-Stars. Clinton originally planned on this being a double album, but the idea was quashed by Warner Brothers. Some of the deleted tracks would appear on future P-Funk releases, most notably the 1983 hit single "Atomic Dog" which appeared on the first George Clinton solo album, "Computer Games."
