Editorial Reviews

Sly & the Family Stone came into their own with their second album. Bursting with joy and invention, it brought the band their first commercial success while the title track became a genuine all time classic. This expanded edition features 6 bonus track - 4 of which are previously unreleased!

In my humble opinion,the title track that starts off this album is one of the most perfect pop and soul songs ever recorded!!!It blasts right into existance,spotlights each musician and who can't sing it?It's a MUSICAL DIRECTIVE that's been going on for generation after generation.Obviously one doesn't expect the rest of this album to be able to keep up.But BY GOLLY IT DOES and with plenty more to burn;as an album,but purely a single 'Dance To The Music' is leaps ahead of A Whole New Thing in terms of songwriting and even energym,plenty of which is present on that debut.So what exactly does Sly do here?He just makes sure people who loved the classic single and bought this album hoping to hear more got JUST THAT!"Higher" is also enormous fun-so fresh,bouncy and carnavalesqe that Sly elected to UTTERLY transform it for another big hit on Stand! (you know the one).Then there's "Dance To The Medley"-the title track fleshed out and extended into a KILLER twelve minutes jam where the musicians don't just get spotlighted but DISTINCT SOLOS (Larry Graham's crackling fuzz bass being the highlite of course)and what comes next?Yet MORE catchy,hook filled funky tunes to make you DANCE "Ride The Rhythm",Color Me True","Are You Ready",the more creeping psychedelia of "Don't Burn Baby" and "I'll Never Fall In Love Again".And the bonus cuts?Well aside from th single edit of the title song and "Higher" you get "Soul Clappin","We Love All", the amazing "I Can't Turn You Loose" (don't know why it didn't make the final cut) and 'Never Do Your Woman Wrong",so it's all more more MORE!!!!Read more ›

We put this on @ carnival in 2003 and the whole street came down to us!

That's the power of this music. The gumbo of RnB/Soul/Gospel/Rock n Roll/the advent of funk/acid swillin' platform stompin' grooves that just won't lay down!

The whole cd is like one movement. it comes it at around 40 mins, so just stick it in and hit the floor!

The transfer is crisp and clean, too, making it sound as fresh today as it did almost 40 years ago!

Essential funk theories.

...at how much better sly and the family stone are to everyone else. What a record! every track a funky masterpeice and how good is the production? You just simply can not fault them. After owning all their records this was the last one on the list and its right up there with the rest of the masterpeices ; stand fresh a whole new thing and of course riot. Nice one

Surely the best Sly & The Family Stone album ever released? Every track a stomping funk masterpiece. The unbelievably timeless, pounding, grooving, relentless, uplifting funk that is "Dance to the Medley" alone makes the album essential. I listen to that song every day - a true party tune. Get those hands in the air, and wave them like you just don't care. Buy it!
