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.

Reviews

  • Bunny Lee/Various Artists - Full UpBunny Lee/Various ArtistsFull Up

    A post rocksteady jamboree of Striker Lee's early reggae productions. Includes some pulsating instrumentals, soulful vocals and twisting dj verbosity. 21 tracks many from original master tapes, laced with evocative photographs that have been supplied by Bunny and his family and some excellent notes on the ‘Bunny Lee’ modus operandi by Diggory Kenrick. A single CD and double Vinyl Lp.

  • One Love Books  - Sound System CultureOne Love Books Sound System Culture

    A really excellent book from Al Fingers 'One Love Books' who are fast gaining a reputation for being the premier label for all things related to Jamaican Culture. Can't recommend this highly enough. Lavish thoughtful and done with real panache.
    Huddersfield a town in the North of England was always known as a hotbed for Reggae Music. This book explains why and how. Tasty.

  • One Love Books  - Clarks in JamaicaOne Love Books Clarks in Jamaica

    The First book from One Love books that came out a while a go. If you missed it then we would recommend it. Nominally a book about shoes!!! But actually lifts gives you an insight into the rich cultural heritage of an iconic English Shoe brand and how it permeated all aspects of Jamaican life. Tempted to mention the 'Sole' of Jamaica but we wont.
