In 1972 as the lineup of Funkadelic that had made the first three albums collapsed in on themselves, some members shuttled back and forth between Detroit and Toronto and kept recording. One of the projects that was embarked upon was an LP by a group called U.S. (United Soul), a single "Baby I Owe You Something Good" b/w "I Miss My Baby" appeared that year credited to U.S. music with Funkadelic. The original album of five tracks includes some prime era Funkadelic grooves including the outrageous "Rat Kiss The Cat On The Navel" and "Be What You Is" which are both uptempo psychedelic funk, as well as the wonderful gospel-imbued vocals of Gary Shider on the opener "This Broken Heart".
An album reached test-pressing stage, but was never released. LP version available on WSU 149.
