"There's a Riot Goin' On" es el quinto álbum de estudio de Sly & The Family Stone, publicado el 1 de noviembre de 1971 por Epic Records. El álbum se aleja del alma optimista de los discos anteriores y cambia a un ambiente más político y militante, enraizado perfectamente el turbulento clima político de los Estados Unidos a principios de la década de 1970. El álbum fue un éxito comercial, alcanzando el número 1 en las listas de álbumes, mientras que el sencillo "Family Affair" se situó en el primer puesto de las listas de singles. "There's a Riot Goin' On sigue" estando muy bien considerado y continúa figurando en las listas de los mejores álbumes de muchas publicaciones, como la de los "500 mejores álbumes de todos los tiempos" de Rolling Stone.

Para celebrar su 50 años se edita ahora en vinilo de color rojo.

 

ENGLISH

There’s A Riot Goin’ On, Sly And The Family Stone’s influential masterpiece of darkly psychedelic funk turns 50 in 2021 and to celebrate, there will be a new limited edition version on red vinyl. The album marked a shift in the band’s tone, striking a more political and militant vibe while showing Sly Stone’s disillusionment with the promise of the 60s. At the same time, it was also a big commercial success, hitting #1 on the album charts while the single “Family Affair” topped the singles charts. Its influence rang throughout the 70s as all of the funk innovators took their cues from this seminal album, and its songs became a favorite for hip hop artist mining sampling gold decades later. It came in at #81 on Rolling Stone’s  Greatest Albums Of All Time and besides “Family Affair,” the album features the tracks “Just Like A Baby” and “Africa Talks To You (“Asphalt Jungle”).”
