Funk Plus The One is the second album by Jerome Brailey and his Funk band Mutiny. The album was released by Columbia Records in 1980. In 1994 the album was reissued by P-Vine records in Japan and contains one extra track entitled "I'm Ready". The album also features a guest appearance by P-Funk bassist/guitarist Cordell Mosson. In 2015 it was reissued in the U.S. by Funky Town Grooves as a two-CD set with their debut album Mutiny On The Mamaship without "I'm Ready," but with three other bonus tracks.[2]
