Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

In 1967, Sly Stone was unabashed: his debut, A Whole New Thing, claimed high ground--it was new, big time. He knew it. By 1969, the newness was transformed, Sly was imploring listeners to Stand! and breaking new ground. The snarl of "Don't Call Me Nigger, Whitey" with its droning organ and wah-wah guitar had claws, it was unmistakable. And the full-on blast of harmonica, fuzz guitars, and horns that opens "I Want to Take You Higher" just cemented the claim: Music would unite and fight and kick and get you high. "Everyday People" almost seems an anomaly in this company, a breezy harmony vocal backing, simple piano framing, long horn lines, and a churchy chorus. It's the biggest hit from Stand!, a true pop gem. What you get with the rest of the album (and Sly's early catalog overall) is sui generis. "Sing a Simple Song" has scouring, wordless shouts, a heavy beat backed by multiple voices half-atop each other, horn riffs jetting across guitar riffs, and an abrupt, scrambling end. It's a tight and tough embrace, an open door. It's 1969. --Andrew Bartlett

Product Description

Stand! is the pinnacle of Sly & the Family Stone's early work, a record that represents a culmination of the group's musical vision and accomplishment. Stand! integrates astounding funk, irresistible melodies, psychedelic guitars and deep rhythums. Add to this a sharpened sense of pop songcraft and Sly's social conscious and the result is utterly stunning. This expanded edition features 5 bonus tracks.

5.0 out of 5 stars Intoxicating and Superb! May 3, 2004
By Samhot
Format:Audio CD
To say that Sly & The Family stone were influential is probably an understatement. Prince has admitted many times that he grew up listening to (and loving) Sly & Company's music, and if you listen to Prince's music, you can hear where he got some of his ideas and techniques. George Clinton and Parliament/Funkadelic were influenced as well. Sly was probably the singlemost interesting (not to mention, the baddest) funkmeister this side of James Brown (and for what it's worth, I grew up listening to, and loving the music of other funksters like The Ohio Players, Rufus/Chaka Khan, Earth, Wind & Fire, George Clinton and others.)
1969's _Stand_ is a non-stop joy-fest: it's almost impossible not to feel uplifted after listening to this. Similarly, it'll also be difficult to stay still, as the grooves on here are just sexy, funky, infectious and downright delicious. Sly mixed up genders and races in his band, and when listening to the music, you can feel the celebration of harmony, and desire for transcendence over the many ills that have plagued society for the longest time. It was all about injecting positivity and exuberance into this mix of psychedelic funk, soul and rock, and the sunny vibe that runs throughout this album is one of the many things that make this effort highly intoxicating - so intoxicating, that even after three decades since it's release, listeners are, more than possibly, still feeling drunk from it's juices.
Just take a look at some of the song titles: "Stand!," "I Want To Take You Higher," "You Can Make It If You Try" -- the vibes are positive and spiritually uplifting throughout. And leave it to clever Sly to turn something as controversial and touchy as racism ("Don't Call Me...") into something so sexy, intoxicating, scrumptious and downright orgasmic.

5.0 out of 5 stars The pinnacle. May 15, 2007
Format:Audio CD
In 1969, Sly & the Family Stone finally found their voice with "Stand!". Continuing his fusion of nearly all sounds he could find while redefining what funk was, leader Sly Stone crafted an album with no less than 4 charting singles, topped off by #1 hit "Everyday People".

The album is dominated by something entirely new-- Stone has taken the band's funk sounds and injected some space, some openness into the music. Take the aformentioned "Everyday People"-- it's a funk song, there's no doubt, but it's got a breeziness to it that's somewhat indefinable (that and an irrestible chorus shouted passionately by the band with Sly on top). Likewise title track "Stand!" has this same openness, almost a California pop song to its verses, again with Stone's soulful vocal leading the way.

But there's something else on here as well, an almost claustrophobically dense sound that's beginning to emerge (and that would define the album's followup "There's a Riot Goin' On"). I think in some capacity it's evident everywhere, but it can most be heard in "Don't Call Me N*gger, Whitey" and the 12 minute jam "Sex Machine"-- a dark, bleak sound that doesn't lend itself to open structure but somehow maintains the same irresistability that the rest of the material has. On the former, Sly Stone sings the chorus with a venom over the dense funk dirge, the latter is wholly instrumental, but in roughly the same vein. Both also feature Sly Stone singing through a vocodor run through a wah-wah pedal to extraordinary effect. One thing about them that's definitely, even at their extended lengths (nearly 6 minutes and over 13 minutes respectively), both of them are incredibly intense and intriguing.

5.0 out of 5 stars The document of a musical revolution October 29, 1999
Format:Audio CD
This is one of the CDs you can't get away from. It was 1969 when this album by Sly & TFS was released and I bet the people haven't heard & seen something like this before. First of all the musical style: Too positive to be blues, too much rock to be soul and too much soul to be rock - the PROTOTYPE of a FUNK album. Then the look: Sly was the first one dressed in multi-colored clothes onstage what even inspired George Clinton for Parliament and -most of all- Funkadelic. Then they were a multi-racial group. The title track "Stand!" is more related to the Beatles' music in the first part of the song but is transforming into Sly's thang in second. Amazing ! Then the other tracks are reflecting every band member (remind Larry Graham's Central Station), they're full of political attitude (f.e. Stand!, Don't Call Me N*****, Whitey !; Sly's tracking down a guitar sound made with his mouth and Wah-Wah effect), sexual exploitation (a sharp bluesy track called "Sex Machine") and Pop standards ("Everyday People"). Wild things and topics were explored on this OVERLOOKED (yes, it is !)'69 masterpiece and you could also find a bunch of HipHop samples in here like Digital Underground's beat for the "Humpty Dance" (f.e.). It seems that the kids 2day are not interested in this music so the way to teach them simply is HipHop. Sampling kept the FUNK alive. But it's all about the promotion, then Sly would even beat out the Stones... !
Other suggestions are: "There's A Riot Going On", "Dance To The Music", "Life" and "Fresh."
