Rolling Stone's Top 500 Albums
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.

180 Gram Audiophile Pressing
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

Stand! (Out Of Stock)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!

Sly And The Family Stone There's A Riot Goin' On 180 gram 45RPM 2LP from ORG Music
Inducted into the Grammy Hall Of Fame in 1999 & Ranked #99 on Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Albums Of All Time!
More than four decades after they first stormed the Pop and R&B charts in the winter of 1968 with “Dance To the Music” – a groundbreaking jam that has the distinction of being chosen for the Grammy Hall Of Fame, the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame’s "500 Songs That Shaped Rock," and Rolling Stone magazine’s "500 Greatest Songs Of All Time" – the music of Sly and the Family Stone is more vital than ever.
The band's catalog (every single composition penned by Sylvester Stewart aka Sly Stone) includes their three career-defining RIAA gold Billboard #1 Pop/ #1 R&B smashes, “Everyday People,” “Thank You (Falletinme Be Mice Elf Again)” and “Family Affair,” and their signature Top 40 hits that began with “Dance To the Music” and went on to include “Stand!,” “Hot Fun In the Summertime,” “Runnin’ Away,” “If You Want Me To Stay,” “Time For Livin’," and more.
Those songs not only inspired an era of youthful rebellion and independence, but also had a potent effect on the course of modern music in general. A dazzling fusion of psychedelic rock, soul, gospel, jazz, and Latin flavors, Sly’s music brought the next step – funk – to a disparate populace of hip artists. From Miles Davis and Herbie Hancock, to the halls of Motown and George Clinton’s P-Funk, from Michael Jackson and Curtis Mayfield, down the line to Bob Marley, the Isley Brothers, Prince, Public Enemy, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Arrested Development, the Black Eyed Peas, the Roots, OutKast and on and on, Sly’s DNA is traceable to every cell of the musical stratosphere.
Since it took almost two years to make, the fifth album by bonafide superstars Sly and the Family Stone had everyone salivating in anticipation. Needless to say, Sly did not disappoint! 1971's There's A Riot Goin' On finds the Bay Area-based genius getting funkier than ever before, even as his artistic vision becomes progressively darker. Some may have been disappointed that Sly didn't simply re-create the chart successes of earlier singles, but who can argue with the flat-out brilliance of turning recent big hit "Thank You (Falettinme Be Mice Elf Agin)" on its head to create the mind-boggling "Thank You For Talkin' To Me Africa."
Two of this hypnotic album's best tunes "Family Affair" and "Runnin' Away" were gigantic chart hits, and There's A Riot Goin' On hit #1 Pop/ #1 R&B within a few weeks of its release in November, proving beyond any shadow of a doubt that Sly Stone could totally deliver the goods! A transformative masterpiece, There's A Riot Goin' On was inducted into the Grammy Hall Of Fame in 1999, and is ranked #99 on Rolling Stone magazine’s '500 Greatest Albums Of All Time.'Luv N' Haight
