This Funkadelic "Best Of" compilation covers both their Westbound and Warner Brothers years. Over a period of 12 years - from their Westbound debut album to the release of 1981's The Electric Spanking Of War Babies, Funkadelic, piloted by George Clinton, redefined the way that black music was recorded and presented. They scored 20 R&B chart hit singles and a dozen chart albums, but their influence was far greater. They brought rock music into the black music charts and demanded to be treated like a rock band and in the years following their demise they have become treated as musical greats, by the sampling hip hop hordes and by the rock music establishment.

Standing On The Verge includes classic hit singles like "One Nation Under A Groove" and "(Not Just) Knee Deep", sample favourites such as "I’ll Bet You" and "Undisco Kidd" and dancefloor monsters such as "Cosmic Slop" and "Better By The Pound". Of course no Funkadelic collection would be complete without the incredible ten minute-plus epic "Maggot Brain"! As well, their early 1969 single "Whatever Makes My Baby Feels Good" is included.

This double vinyl edition produced by Westbound Records in 2009. Mastered at Sound Mastering. Lacquer cut at SST Bruggemann GbbH.
