Sly & The Family Stone: One of the most innovative groups popular music has ever known, a band that instigated a musical revolution!
Led by Sylvester "Sly Stone" Stewart, The Family Stone's personnel was black and white, and male and female, and black and white, making it likely the first fully integrated group in the history of popular music. Starting in 1966, their sound was a unique, unknown fusion of soul, jazz, rock, R&B and psychedelia. Sly himself was a master musician who wrote, arranged and produced all the group's material, fashioning ingenious musical arrangements filled with syncopated rhythm, pop melody and unexpected harmony.
This book covers the entire discography of Sly & The Family Stone. It is a complete career overview, from the first gospel recording by the Stewart Four, through to Sly's most recent releases, as well as each members solo work in the years before and since, illustrated with vinyl releases from all over the world. It's the book all Sly fans have been waiting for. As a special bonus, copies come with a 45 reproduction of the hyper-rare Stewart Four 78 from 1952.
