Warthur
Parliament's debut album sounds more like Funkadelic, presenting a guitar-driven sound which is differentiated from the material on the Funkadelic albums of the era mainly through its focus on short-form structured songs as opposed to improvisational jams. Of course, from Maggot Brain onwards Funkadelic would incorporate songs such as this alongside their longer freakouts, leaving the Parliament name rather redundant until it was resurrected in 1974 as a home for P-Funks more horn-driven and funk-leaning and less psych-drenched material. This leaves Osmium as a real oddity in the P-Funk catalogue - but a catchier and more compelling oddity you'd struggle to find.
