Sly & The Family Stone
Sly & The Family Stone - Life LP
On 1968's 'Life', Sly and his Family Stone take it up a notch. There's a heavier reliance on psychedelics and fuzz guitars, plus a sharpening of Sly's songcraft that extends to even throwaways like "Chicken." Brilliant, intoxicating slices of funk-pop that get by as much on sound as song, and they're all hard to resist.
