Our Review

Sly Stone’s erratic behavior had made his live performances hit and mostly miss affairs. But in the studio, Stone managed to harness his troubles and channel his energy into music that remained among the era’s most challenging and exciting. Coming after his two strongest albums, 1969’s Stand! and 1971’s There’s A Riot Goin’ On, 1973’s Fresh suffered from unrealistic expectations and a soul music marketplace that had absorbed his innovations and replicated his results with stunning vitality, as the socially conscious music of Curtis Mayfield and Marvin Gaye and the powerful funk of Funkadelic clearly illustrated. Drummer Greg Errico quit and bassist Larry Graham was fired after a heated argument with Sly. This shift in rhythm section sends the music into a direct, hard-hitting funk. “Keep On Dancin’” channels “Dance to the Music,” adding a sardonic edge, while “In Time,” “I Don’t Know (Satisfaction)” and “Let Me Have It All” groove with a shockingly modern edge. The album serves as a primer for the works of Prince. The 2007 reissue includes four alternate mixes and an alternate version of “Babies Makin’ Babies” that top off Sly Stone’s most artistically fruitful period.

Customer Reviews

That's the stuff. (5 stars)
One of the most underrated albums of all time. The ultimate soundtrack to making love or getting down. Too bad homeboy up above gave it only 1 star by mistake.

FUNKY (5 stars)
"In time" alone is as funky as it gets

Sly is a "Wizard" (5 stars)
I grew up listening and playing Sly & The Family Stone songs in the early 70's. I guess that makes me sort of old school but not so un-hip. All I have to say is that anyone giving this album lower than 4 stars does not understand how great this album is. One reviewer said it best, listen to the song "In Time". Killing!! You might have to be a true musician to really appreciate Sly's music.

Biography

Formed: 1967 in San Francisco, CA
Genre: R&B/Soul
Years Active: '60s, '70s, '80s

Sly & the Family Stone harnessed all of the disparate musical and social trends of the late '60s, creating a wild, brilliant fusion of soul, rock, R&B, psychedelia, and funk that broke boundaries down without a second thought. Led by Sly Stone, the Family Stone was comprised of men and women, and blacks and whites, making the band the first fully integrated group in rock's history. That integration shone through the music, as well as the group's message. Before Stone, very few soul and R&B...
