Sly & The Family Stone
 
i don't know if there's already a thread on this but...

This is one of the greatest funk bands or just greatest bands ever. period. After two days of listening to There's A Riot Goin On and Fresh non stop, i have decided this. Every sound on every song is perfect. Sly's voice and organ playing are immaculate. Of course amazing basslines and guitar. Who else digs them?

i do, but theyr not the greatest

CharlesJones 01-25-2008 04:16 PM

Everyday People, Family Affair, Stand, Hot Fun In The Summertime, I Wanna Thank You For Letting Me Be Myself are my favorite songs by them.

oDoUoSoKo 01-25-2008 10:20 PM

DUMBO 01-28-2008 09:43 PM

sly is one of the baddest motherfuckers ever. there's a lot of great funk bands, but the best funk album = there's a riot goin on.

Longbongcilvaringz 03-17-2008 12:46 PM

yes, fucking awesome.

Family Affair bangs in the whip

LORD NOSE 03-17-2008 02:01 PM

most people don't know this, but Sly and them are the originators of funk
James and George and them were singing ballads and doing R&B then Sly came and showed them all how to be Funky - He even influenced Miles who predates Sly

Listen to the Whole "Stand" Album and check out a song they got on there called "Sex Machine" You'll see

herzog 03-17-2008 03:11 PM

james brown released "papa's got a brand new bag" in 1965, two years before sly even released an album. that's not funk?

but, yeah, stand is awesome.
