Synopsis

Album Description
When the irresistible sound of "Dance To The Music" lit up the nation's airwaves in early 1968, it was obvious that Sly Stone's "whole new thing" was about to blow everyone's mind sky-high. This live-wire chart smash used the time-tested "introduce the band" technique to showcase trumpeter Cynthia Robinson, Sly's brother/guitarist Freddie Stone, saxman Jerry Martini, Sly's sister/pianist Rosie Stone, bassist Larry Graham and drummer Greg Errico--all from different cultural/racial backgrounds. This radical new sound would have far-reaching musical implications--the second album by Sly & the Family Stone is full of grooves and beats just as intoxicating as "Dance To The Music," featuring addictive heavyweight numbers like "Higher" and "Ride The Rhythm"--tunes ripe for Cynthia's cautionary warning, "All the squares go home!"

CD Reviews

As good as Sly gets, which is better than everyone else.
Eric V. Moye | New York, by way of Dallas | 02/22/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"His first, and along with "Stand", his best. Full of the energy and innovation that made him the best that there was back in '68.Buy it for "Dance to the Medley": Dance In, Music Lover an Music is Alive. Fifteen minutes of the best there was."
Embarrasing

"...at how much better sly and the family stone are to everyone else. What a record! every track a funky masterpeice and how good is the production? You just simply can not fault them. After owning all their records this was the last one on the list and its right up there with the rest of the masterpeices ; stand fresh a whole new thing and of course riot. Nice one"
The foundations of funk...

"We put this on @ carnival in 2003 and the whole street came down to us!

That's the power of this music. The gumbo of RnB/Soul/Gospel/Rock n Roll/the advent of funk/acid swillin' platform stompin' grooves that just won't lay down!

The whole cd is like one movement. it comes it at around 40 mins, so just stick it in and hit the floor!

The transfer is crisp and clean, too, making it sound as fresh today as it did almost 40 years ago!

Essential funk theories."
