"You know, I'd buy this collection from Sly and the Family Stone but it still only contains the original 12 tracks of it's initial 1970 release. And every track on here is great. He does have some gay sounding 70's tunes that I'm glad are not here, but there are still two classic high pop charters from 1971 and 1973 from Sly and the Family Stone that could make this collection a whole lot better.
If they added "Family Affair" and "If You Want Me To Stay" as bonus tracks, this CD would be ultimately complete as a greatest hits CD of Sly and the Family Stone. I know there is a double CD of the best of Sly and the Family Stone, but that's just way too much Sly and the Family Stone to have to sit through. And, like I said, he's got some really pansy sounding tunes.
Now, Columbia did good when they re-released Donovan's greatest hits, and the Hollies greatest hits, by adding their few extra charted hits after the albums initial release, so why can't they improve on Sly and the Family Stone? If Santana's greatest hits had the full version of "Black Magic Woman/Gypsy Queen", I'd buy that CD. When Columbia released the first CD of Blood, Sweat, and Tears, they gave us the full versions of all the songs (even though they printed the shorter 45 versions time lengths on the back). When they re-released their greatest hits as re-mastered, they then gave us the original 45 versions as the original album was released in the 70's. I'm glad I still have the first CD issue.
I guess I'll just have to make my own "best of CD" of Sly and the Family Stone. Heck, I'm sure alot of people are doing that anyway."
