Sly-&-The-Family-Stone---re.jpg
Sly & The Family Stone - took Funk to a whole new level.


Ending up the week in some familiar territory. Sly & The Family Stone were huge right out of the starting gate in the mid-1960's. With a roll of hits that didn't let up until the 80's, they've gone down as one of the premier Funk outfits that paved the way for a lot of other bands to follow suit since.

Tonight it's the B-side of their 1969/1970 hit Thank You (Fallettinme Be Mice Elf Again), Everybody Is A Star, which also became a hit on its own.

I thought I'd take it down a few notches for the weekend this time.
