About the Artist
Along with James Brown and Parliament-Funkadelic, Sly & the Family Stone virtually invented 1970's funk. Their fusion of R&B rhythms, infectious melodies, and psychedelia created a new pop/soul/rock hybrid. The impact of Sly's music has proven widespread and long-lasting. For instance, Motown producer Norman Whitfield patterned the label's forays into harder-driving, socially relevant material (such as The Temptations’ 'Runaway Child' and 'Ball of Confusion') based on their sound. The pioneering Stone had a major influence in the 1980's on artists such as Prince and Rick James. Legions of artists from the 1990's forward - including Public Enemy, Fatboy Slim, Arrested Development, Beck and many others - mined Stone's back catalogue for samples. For those not familiar with Sly this 2LP set is a great introduction and an invitation to dig deeper into Sly & The Family Stone's catalogue. This 20 track compilation covers all the hits & fan favourites from the 1968-1974 period. The Best Of Sly and The Family Stone is now available as a limited edition on transparent pink vinyl. Also available on 180 gm vinyl: Dance To The Music / There's A Riot Goin' On / Fresh. Tracklist: Side A: 1. Dance To The Music 2. I Want To Take You Higher 3. Family Affair 4.
