C&L's Late Nite Music Club With Sly And The Family Stone

Here's a funky one from Sly and the Family Stone. Off of their 1973 album, "Fresh", "If You Want Me to Stay" was one of Sly and the Family Stone's last hits before frontman Sly Stone's tragic descent into the world of drugs and mental illness. However, this song remains a monument to Sly and the Family Stone's greatness and integral role as an innovator in the funk genre.
