Biography

Born: April 25, 1917 in Newport News, VA
Genre: Jazz
Years Active: '30s, '40s, '50s, '60s, '70s, '80s, '90s

“The First Lady of Song,” Ella Fitzgerald was arguably the finest female jazz singer of all time (although some may vote for Sarah Vaughan or Billie Holiday). Blessed with a beautiful voice and a wide range, Fitzgerald could outswing anyone, was a brilliant scat singer, and had near-perfect elocution; one could always understand the words she sang. The one fault was that, since she always sounded so happy to be singing, Fitzgerald did not always dig below the surface of the lyrics she interpreted…

Our Review

Arguments will forever ensue over whether 1969’s Stand! or 1971’s There’s A Riot Goin’ On serves as Sly and the Family Stone’s
finest hour. Riot is an artistically dark collection of songs confronting the mounting tensions within the group and the country, whereas Stand! tries to have it both ways. There is the growing tension of race relations, sparked by Martin Luther King, Jr.’s assassination and the inner city riots, indirectly addressed in “Don’t Call Me Nigger, Whitey,” and the growing surveillance paranoia of “Somebody’s Watching You,” but there is also the unrestrained ebullience of the title track, “I Want to Take You Higher,” “Everyday People,” and “You Can Make It If You Try.” The band was firing on all cylinders: Larry Graham’s uncompromising bass, Freddy Stone’s hard rock and funky guitars, Sly and sister Rosie’s enveloping keyboards, the punctual horn section and, most exciting, the revolving door of vocal contributions from the five band members that make every song a celebration regardless of the situation. The expanded edition includes several single mono mixes, including the truncated version of “I Want To Take You Higher,” a previously un-issued instrumental (“My Brain” (Zig-Zag)”) and the spirited if less than groundbreaking “Soul Clappin’ II.”

Customer Reviews

Sex Machine (5 stars)
You guys @ iTunes need to release sex machine as a stand alone single for sale. This is a request from the ole school soul surviours. How about it ITunes.

Sex Machine (5 stars)
I am very disappointed that I cannot buy Sly Stone's Sex Machine as a single but could only get it if buying the album. This was my first time coming to the store to buy but I think I may avoid it if that is the way sales are packaged.

CLASSIC SLY & THE FAMILY STONE (5 stars)
This was Sly at his creative best, a must for ALL to have, the 2 bonus cuts sound great, definitely from the same era. If you don't have any music by Sly, you better hurry and get this new cleaned up great sounding version. Thanks itunes.

Biography

Formed: 1967 in San Francisco, CA
Genre: R&B/Soul
Years Active: '60s, '70s, '80s

Sly & the Family Stone harnessed all of the disparate musical and social trends of the late '60s, creating a wild, brilliant fusion of soul, rock, R&B, psychedelia, and funk that broke boundaries down without a second thought. Led by Sly Stone, the Family Stone was comprised of men and women, and blacks and whites, making the band the first fully integrated group in rock's history. That integration shone through the music, as well as the group's message. Before Stone, very few soul and R&B…
