Information

The pioneering precedent of Stone's racial, sexual, and stylistic mix had a major influence in the eighties on artists such as Prince and Rick James and legions more from the nineties onward as Public Enemy, Fatboy Slim, Arrested Development, Beck and many others all mined Stone's back catalogue for samples.

For those not familiar with Sly Stone this 2LP set (on 180 grams audiophile vinyl) is a great introduction and an invitation to dig deeper into The Family Stone´s incredible back catalogue.

    Memphis Soul Food cooked the Jamaican way. Has a Lee Perry credit but he is most likely not involved. Never the less an excellent 45.
