    Default 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?

    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.

    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.



    drugged out, fucked up, depressed ass dirty funk.

    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

    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.
