OVSE-MOV-610xSly & The Family Stone
Stand!Ranked 118/500 on Rolling Stone Magazine's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.
All things wonderful about Sly & The Family Stone in the first years of their existence came together on their 1969 album 'Stand!'. The enthusiasm, the blurring of lines, the testing of boundaries; it all blends together in the Funk of the Family Stone
'Stand!' is one of those records that came to define the flower power generation; the activism in 'Don't Call Me Nigger, Whitey', the psychedelic pulsating dance rhythms in 'I Want To Take You Higher', the spirit of belonging in 'Everyday People'. Stand! isone of the most sampled records in Hip Hop and R&B. This is the pinnacle of Sly The Family Stone's career, and it has a rightful place in music history.1. Stand!

There's A Riot Going On was Sly & The Family Stone's answer to Marvin Gaye's What's Going On?, the seminal Soul album that came out five months before the Sly Stone masterpiece. It's a dark, earthy Funk album, that went straight to number 1 upon release. Single Family Affair also topped the charts, and is still one of Sly Stone's most beloved tracks. It manages to capture the era of militant activism and deep social unrest in a brooding, moody album with tension that could cut through steel. It still appears on plenty of 'greatest albums of all time' lists (Rolling Stone placed it on #99 out of 500) and is seen as one of the most important and influential albums of the 1970s.Side A

OVSE-MOV-1430xSly & The Family Stone
A Whole New ThingA Whole New Thing is the debut album of Sly and the Family Stone, released in 1967. Unlike later Sly and the Family Stone albums, A Whole New Thing was recorded live in the studio instead of being overdubbed and featured less of a Pop feel than later releases such as Dance to the Music and Stand!. The lead vocals are shared between Sly Stone, Freddie Stone, and Larry Graham; Rose Stone would not join the band until they began work on Dance to the Music.
The album is more restrained and not nearly as funky or psychedelic as their subsequent efforts, owing far more to traditional Soul arrangements. These aren't that traditional, though; Sly is already using goofier and/or more thoughtful lyrics than the Soul norm, and taking some cues from Rock in his adventurous and unexpected song construction.1.

FreshRanked 186/500 on Rolling Stone Magazine's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.
With classics such as If You Want Me To Stay and Que Sera Sera, Fresh is one of Sly & The Family Stone's masterpieces. Recorded in 1973 it's steeped in the narcotic haze of political and social protest, but it is also an undeniably funky album. Elastic basslines, foot-stomping beats, eccentricity lurking around every note; Fresh is cool demonstration of why Sly & The Family Stone were one of the most influential bands in 'black' music, and Fresh is one of the best Funk albums of its era.1.

Anthology - Greatest Hits180 Gram Translucent Gold Colored Vinyl With Gatefold Cover
Anthology essentially replicates the previous collection Greatest Hits and adds singles from There's a Riot Goin' On and Fresh to the end of the album. Where Greatest Hits didn't follow a chronological order, Anthology presents every single in the order it was released -- and, with the exception of the latter-day singles and the inclusion of Don't Call Me Nigger, Whitey, that is the major difference between the two collections. Anthology goes for a sweeping, definitive overview, while Greatest Hits is a brief blast of 12 of the finest singles of the rock & roll era. Either compilation functions as an excellent introduction, but Anthology is more comprehensive, giving it the edge as a first purchase.

MTO Plays SlyNew York City's favorite 'little big band' Steven Bernstein's Millennial Territory Orchestra cracks open wide the monumental songbook of Sly & The Family Stone on its third album, MTO Plays Sly.
On this freewheeling and jubilant 13-track tribute, MTO, propelled by a dynamic cast of special guests, treats Sly and Co. with the same reverence it would Duke Ellington or Count Basie, illuminating the melodic and harmonic sophistication of the iconoclast's body of work by re-imagining the music through the filter of their own downtown NYC aesthetic, while upholding th Day-Glo soul and psychedelic funk that is the backbone for classics like M'Lady, Everybody People and Family Affair.
MTO is Steven Bernstein, Peter Apfelbaum, Doug Wieselman, Erik Lawrence, Curtis Fowlkes, Charlie Burnham, Matt Munisteri, Ben Allison and Ben Perowsky.

The Songs Of Tony Sly: A TributeOn July 31, 2012, we lost a true original, Tony Sly. While we continue to mourn Tony our friend, we also celebrate Tony the artist with the official release The Songs of Tony Sly: A Tribute. We can't express how much it means to us and Tony's family that each of the artists and bands on this album took the time and effort to contribute such meaningful and interesting interpretations of Tony's songs. - Fat Wreck Chords
Anthony J. Sly (November 4, 1970 - July 31, 2012) was an American singer, songwriter and guitarist, best known as the front man of the punk rock band No Use for a Name.

LifeBy late 1968, the third album by Sly & the Family Stone absolutely blew the roof off the building. Life sounded so tangibly real it almost seemed like it was cut live. The title track, along with Love City, Plastic Jim, Into My Own Thing and especially Dynamite! signaled a perfect alliance between Sly's multi-influence, far-reaching musical vision and the burgeoning hippie ballroom community, already spreading like lawn daisies throughout the land. Never before had juicily syncopated beats dovetailed so perfectly with distortion-laced rock guitar. You don't have to die before you live, sings Sly on Life and he's not kidding! The lyrical content of Sly's music becomes even more graphic with detailed workouts like Jane Is A Groupee, a riveting description of this fascinating rock 'n' roll sub-culture. Then, on the other hand, you have the full-bore party numbers like M'Lady and Fun, songs fully capable of launching anybody's weekend with reckless abandon!1. Dynamite!

Whole New ThingBy the time Sly Stone, former producer/talent scout for Tom Donahue's Autumn records, decided to step out front and form his own band in 1967, he knew exactly what the music business needed: a multi-racial, boy-girl outfit that skillfully blended elements of soul, rock, jazz and funk. Sly & the Family Stone's debut, A Whole New Thing, didn't completely tip Sly's hand, but it got the ball rolling in the right direction by adding fuzzed-up guitar to soulful vocals, a tasty horn section, occasional protest lyrics and just enough Golden State psychedelia to make Sly's groundbreaking work unmistakable. This revolutionary new sound wouldn't fully catch the nation's fancy until the spring of 1968, but it was already perfectly clear that A Whole New Thing was going to be nothing less than what it proclaimed! It was, indeed, the harbinger of a whole new thing!1. Underdog

You Haunt MeSir Sly is not a person but the sum of its parts. Landon Jacobs, Hayden Coplen, and
Jason Suwito often refer to Sir Sly as an elusive, almost unattainable entity they strive to
embody. This personification of the mysterious Sir Sly is what helps drive the nonstop
creative process that keeps the trio constantly writing and recording music, tirelessly
striving to create art that is inventive and honest.
The Los Angeles based band write, record, produce, mix and master all of their music in
their own recording studio, where they have developed their signature sound - a delicate
balance of solemnly surging, yet indelibly catchy electronic indie rock.
Before coming together as Sir Sly in the Fall of 2012, each member spent years
perfecting their self-taught respective crafts, honing their skills in whatever ways they
could. Lead singer Landon Jacobs began writing songs at age 13 in the bedroom of his
southern California home, after learning to play guitar and piano. Drummer Hayden
Coplen learned how to play by watching and imitating old videos of Buddy Rich and
Gene Krupa. Keyboardist Jason Suwito built the band's studio himself, and self-taught
the technical skills involved with recording engineering and music production.
It's this refreshing self-sustaining approach to creating music that initially brought the
three members together, and has kept them continually working to develop and maintain
the spirit of Sir Sly1. Where I'm Going

High On YouSly Stone is a songwriter and record producer, mostly famous for his role as frontman for Sly and the Family Stone. The band played a critical role in the development of soul, funk, rock, and psychedelics in the 1960s and '70s.
Sly Stone was identified as a musical prodigy at a young age. By the time he was seven, Sylvester had already become proficient on the keyboards and by the age of eleven he had mastered the guitar, bass, and drums as well. While still in high school, Sylvester had settled primarily on the guitar and joined a number of high school bands.
The most talented musician I know is Sly Stone, Bootsy Collins told Mojo magazine (March 2002 issue). He's more talented than anybody I ever have seen - he's amazing. I worked with him in Detroit from 1981 to '83, and to see him just fooling around, playing, jamming, is a whole other trip. He's the most amazing musician.
In 1993 he was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a member of the group.
High On You (1975) is the first solo album by songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Sly Stone. For the most part, Stone performed a large part of the instrumentation for each song on his own by using multi-tracking. The album prominently features vocalist Rudy Love and includes the singles I Get High on You, Le Lo Li and Crossword Puzzle.1. I Get High On You

Sly & The Family Stone-Live At The Fillmore East October 4th & 5th, 1968 is a never before released live album set by Sly & The Family Stone which was recorded in 1968 at Bill Graham's legendary New York City venue The Fillmore East where the band performed for 2 nights. It will at long last be released for the first time ever on a 4-CD set comprised of these concerts (two shows per night), each disc featuring one of the shows.
On October 4th and 5th, 1968, shortly after the release of the band's third album Life, Sly & The Family Stone took the stage at Bill Graham's legendary Fillmore East in New York City. Along with the success of Dance To The Music, which was released earlier that year and spun off the Top 10 hit of the same name, Sly & The Family Stone were making a name for themselves on the concert circuit, with their dynamic, high energy live performances.
Epic Records recorded all four of these concerts (two shows per night) with plans to release a live album that would consist of selections from these performances but the release was shelved until now.LP1

I'm Just Like You: Sly's Stone Flower 1969-70Compilation And Notes By Alec Palao
An Exclusive New Interview With Sly Stone Himself
In-depth Liner Notes With First-hand Reminiscences Of The Stone Flower Era From Many Of The Participants
Features All Five Stone Flower Produced Singles Plus Ten Previously Unissued Cuts From The Label Archives
All Tracks Newly Remastered From The Original Tapes
In 1970, The Family Stone were at the peak of their popularity, but the maestro Sly Stone had already moved his head to a completely different space. The first evidence of Sly's musical about-turn was revealed by the small catalog of his new label, Stone Flower: a pioneering, peculiar, minimal electro-funk sound that unfolded over just four seven-inch singles. Stone Flower's releases were credited to their individual artists, but each had Sly's design and musicianship stamped into the grooves-and the words "Written by Sylvester Stewart/Produced and arranged by Sly Stone" on the sticker.
Set up by Stone's manager David Kapralik with distribution by Atlantic Records, Stone Flower was, predictably, a family affair: the first release was by Little Sister, fronted by Stone's little sister Vaetta Stewart. It was short lived too-the imprint folded in 1971-but its influence was longer lasting. The sound Stone formulated while working on Stone Flower's output would shape the next phase in his own career as a recording artist: it was here he began experimenting with the brand new Maestro Rhythm King drum machine. In conjunction with languid, effected organ and guitar sounds and a distinctly lo-fi soundscape, Sly's productions for Stone Flower would inform the basis of his masterwork There's A Riot Goin' On.
The first 45 came in February 1970: Little Sister's dancefloor-ready "You're The One" hit Number 22 in the charts-the label's highest showing. The follow-up, "Stanga, also by Little Sister, made the wah pedal the star. The third release came from 6IX, a six-piece multi-racial rock group whose sole release, a super-slow version of The Family Stone's "Dynamite, featured only the lead singer and harmonica player from the group. Joe Hicks was the final Stone Flower stablemate; his pulsing, electronic Life And Death In G&A" is one of the bleakest moments Sly Stone ever created on disc (Hicks' prior single for Scepter, "Home Sweet Home," the first released Stone Flower production, is also included).
This long overdue compilation of Sly's Stone Flower era gathers each side of the five 45s plus ten previously unissued cuts from the label archives, all newly remastered from the original tapes. In these grooves you'll find the missing link between the rocky, soulful Sly Stone of Stand! and the dark, drum machine-punctuated, overdubbed sound of There's A Riot Going On. I'm Just Like You: Sly's Stone Flower 1969-70 opens up the mysteries of an obscure but monumental phase in Stone's career.1. You're The One (Parts 1 & 2) - Little Sister

Acoustic Volume 2Before the current barrage of seasoned punk rockers trying their hand at acoustic music, Joey Cape and Tony Sly, frontmen of Lagwagon and No Use For a Name, forged a path into the genre with their acclaimed 2004 split release, aptly titled Acoustic. The release featured acoustic arrangements of Lagwagon and NUFAN hits as well as a couple originals, and proved to be wildly popular with fans of their bands.
They didn't know it at the time, but the album served as a launching point for both Joey's and Tony's solo careers. Since they cut their teeth recording Acoustic, Tony and Joey have flourished as solo musicians. Over the past 8 years, their dedication and focus has progressively shifted toward solo work, resulting in the release of 2 solo albums each. The writing and recording process, not to mention countless tours and shows, have all served to hone their aptitude for acoustic music.
With a much greater command of the genre, the guys decided to revisit their original concept and release Acoustic Vol. 2. Once again Tony took 5 classic No Use For A Name songs and Joey selected 5 Lagwagon tracks, and transformed them into acoustic masterpieces. The guys also kept up tradition by each writing and recording brand new original tracks exclusively for the release. The product, Acoustic Vol. 2, is an album of reinvented classics, captured through a lens of complex instrumentation and subdued aesthetic. Joey's and Tony's mastery of the acoustic medium absolutely shines, breathing a completely new mood and feel into fan favorites and upping the ante on the second installment in the Acoustic series of releases. Vinyl includes digital download of full album.
Last year Tony and I collaborated with Jon Snodgrass and Brian Wahlstrom and released an LP called Scorpios. It was great fun, but the original split we did in 2004 for Fat Wreck Chords, entitled Acoustic has often been in our conversation over the years. We perform so many No Use For A Name and Lagwagon songs in our acoustic sets. After extensive touring together and almost 8 years since Acoustic, it seemed like a good time for a sequel. The new split, simply called Acoustic Volume 2, came together naturally and effortlessly. I have always liked the idea of an acoustic version of a band's song. It's nice to hear it stripped down. My feeling is, the song often rings more true and its original inspiration is honored. - Joey CapeJoey Cape

Dance To The MusicSly & the Family Stone came into their own with their second album, Dance to the Music, released in 1968. It contains the Top Ten hit single of the same name. This seminal album helped lay the groundwork for the development of Funk music.
This is such exuberant music, bursting with joy and invention, it's easy to get sucked into the freewheeling spirit and cavalier virtuosity of the group. Prior to this record no one, not even the Family Stone, treated Soul as a psychedelic sun splash, filled with bright melodies, kaleidoscopic arrangements, inextricably intertwined interplay, and deft, fast rhythms.
Dance to the Music peaked at #8 in The Billboard Hot 100, and reached 9th place in the R&B Singles of 1968. The song propelled Sly & The Family Stone into the stratosphere.1. Dance To The Music

LifeLife is the third studio album of Sly and the Family Stone, originally released in 1968.
Many of its songs, including M'Lady, Fun, Love City, as well as the title track, became popular staples in the Family Stone's live show. A middle ground between the fiery A Whole New Thing and the more commercial Dance To The Music, Life features very little use of studio effects, and is instead more driven by frontman Sly Stone's compositions.
Much of Life has been heavily sampled for Hip Hop and Electronica recordings, particularly Gregg Errico's drum solo on Love City. The opening riff on Into My Own Thing was sampled for Fatboy Slim's 2001 hit Weapon of Choice.1. Dynamite!

Small TalkSmall Talk is the seventh album by Sly and the Family Stone, released in 1974. This album was the final LP to feature the original Family Stone, which broke up in January 1975.
Singles include Time For Livin' (the band's final Top 40 hit) and Loose Booty, an up-tempo funk track which uses the names of Bible characters Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego as a chant, sampled by the Beastie Boys on their masterpiece Paul's Boutique in 1989. Beastie Boys also covered Time For Livin' which was released on the album Check Your Head in 1992 along with a live music video augmented with skateboarding footage.

DigTaking up from where iconic bands like Deep Purple and Bad Company have left off, Heaven & Earth is on a mission to resurrect the sanctity of classic rock in its purest, most accessible form on their third studio album titled Dig. Dig was produced by Dave Jenkins-who's turned the knobs for everyone from Metallica to Tower of Power-and features special guests Howard Leese (Heart, Paul Rodgers), Richie Sambora (Bon Jovi) and David Paich (Toto).
Heaven & Earth-guitarist Stuart Smith, singer Joe Retta, bassist Chuck Wright, drummer Richie Onori and keyboardist Arlan Schierbaum-fuse elements of hard rock, blues and bits of classical with bravado and a razor-sharp focus.
As the band's founder and visionary, Smith says about Dig, "I feel that with the crafting of the songs on this album, the incredible band we've put together, especially with powerhouse vocalist Joe Retta and the unwavering support of Quarto Valley Records' President, Bruce Quarto, we really have a shot at getting Heaven & Earth the attention it deserves. This album is by far, the best thing I have ever done in my life!"
The British-born guitarist spent the 70's bending strings with numerous groups before he distinguished himself by making the acquaintance of Deep Purple's Ritchie Blackmore, who mentored the up-and-coming musician. "I'm probably one of the few people in the world who grew up with a poster of someone on their wall, ended up meeting them, becoming friends with them, and getting mentored by them," Smith notes. At the urging of Blackmore, Smith migrated to Los Angeles where the seeds for Heaven & Earth were planted. The band released two critically acclaimed albums-Heaven & Earth Featuring Stuart Smith (1994) and Windows to the World (2000)-which helped advance Smith's musical vision. Now, with Dig complete, the guitarist says Heaven & Earth is a true band, an energized collective of like-minded musicians who are excited at bringing its unique, celestial brand of rock to audiences all over the world in 2013. "All the pieces are in place," he explains with graceful candor. "We're ready to make this our year."
All the backing tracks on Dig were recorded at Ocean Studios in Burbank, California, and all the overdubs were done at the band's own Wine Cellar Studios in Woodland Hills, California. To further refine the record's sonic reach, Jenkins used a Closed Loop Analog Signal Processor (CLASP), a device that integrates real analog tape recording into digital tools like Pro Tools to create a warm and vintage sound. Both Van Halen and Aerosmith enlisted a CLASP on their most recent albums.1. Victorious
