The Freak of the Week

Funkadelic : (Not Just) Knee Deep

In August of 1979 Funkadelic released "(Not Just) Knee Deep", a single that would top of the U.S. R+B charts for three weeks in October.  Edited down from its 15 minute running time on the forthcoming Uncle Jam Wants You, the tune features a keyboard line and vocals most famously sampled by De La Soul in their #1 R+B hit ten years later, "Me Myself and I". That's PhillipĂ© Wynne (formerly of the Spinners) on lead vocals.
