Sly and the Family Stone pioneered funk in the late 1960s and early 1970s.
Their fusion of soul and psychedelic rock created a new music that reflected the growing radicalism – particularly on US university campuses.
This collection combines the band’s early recordings with Sly’s various outside productions.
These tracks trace the build up to the seminal 1971 album There’s A Riot Going On.
Tracks like “Small Fries” satirise the army and conscription. It’s fantastic stuff.
