It’s been more than 2 decades since the frontman for the groundbreaking R&B/Soul outfit Sly & The Family Stone has released a full album of new recordings. In that time, Sly Stone has become one of music’s most elusive recluses, making live appearances on rare occasions at select events, including the 2006 Rock N’ Roll Hall Of Fame induction ceremony, and all the while his legend has grown and grown.
In recent years, Stone – the writer of some of the most timeless and influential gems in music history such as “Dance To the Music,” “Everyday People” and “Family Affair” – has wrestled with demons both personal and professional, but never allowed the inspirational flame to die out completely. Now, Sly returns with brand new versions of classic songs from the Stone family repertoire, aided by Jeff Beck, Ray Manzarek, and a few other everyday people who also happen to be immensely talented superstars and great admirers of one Sly Stone!
- The first new album by legendary funk master Sly Stone since 1982 features brand new versions of Sly’s biggest hits with some help from rock n’ roll royalty!
- Features brand new renditions of the all-time classics “Dance To the Music,” “Everyday People,” “Family Affair,” “Thank You (Falentinme Be Mice Elf Agin)” and much more PLUS 3 previously unreleased tracks!
- Includes a host of well-known guests such as Ray Manzarek (The Doors), Bootsy Collins, Ann Wilson (Heart), Jeff Beck and others!
