This compilation of the early stuff from them is really great. It's a really happy version of funk. Designed to make you dance.

So funky, yet so topical. Sly had the cajones to say what others were thinking. He helped open up r&b to new sounds, but a new attitude as well.

Yes, daftpunter, you are right, Miles heard a concert of theirs and was so excited by the audio reaction that he wanted to do something similar, something that the rock audience would like, so that was the inspiration for "Bitches Brew".

Sly's impact on music was soooo great that even the great Miles Davis adjusted his view on music and followed him. In the few albums (Dance To The Music, Life, Stand!, There's a Riot Going On, and Fresh) made prior to the drugs sapping him of his muse and sanity Sly simply made the funkiest Rock and Roll ever. Parliament doesn't exist without Sly. Funk wouldn't have been what it was without The Family Stone. An important band (man).

"Family Affair" is my fav Sly record, I remember when their first hit "Dance to the music" came out in 1968. me and a friend were in the back seat of our car going to the grocery store with my mom, and "DTTM" came on the radio,..we just looked at each other and said "What the hell is that!" I hadn't heard anything that mindblowing since "papa's got a brand new bag".
