The Parliament album entitled Osmium was released on Invictus Records in 1970, and was later reissued on CD with non-album tracks as both Rhenium and First Thangs. Osmium featured a mostly psychedelic soul sound that was more similar to the Funkadelic albums of the period than to the later Parliament albums. Two further Parliament albums, Gloryhallastoopid (1979) and Trombipulation (1980) were less successful than the albums from the group's prime 1975-1978 period. Parliament's 1978 release "Aqua Boogie (A bioaquadoloop)" would go on to become one of the defining samples of the West Coast G-Funk movement.

Trombipulation is the final studio album by George Clinton’s psychedelic funk outfit Parliament, one face of his c collective. It was released in 1980, after which Clinton ended the group, although they continued to record as Funkadelic for several more years. Trombipulation Q&A.

1. Crush It. 2. Trombipulation.

Perhaps the most interesting aspect of Trombipulation is how it finds Parliament in free fall, seemingly out of good ideas and sounding downright uninspired. It's no wonder Clinton dissolved the group after this album's wake - after both Gloryhallastoopid and Trombipulation, it'd become apparent Parliament had run its course and had become creatively bankrupt.
