UK vinyl LP pressing of this 1969 album from Sly Stone and his musical family. Music On Vinyl.
Need proof of how great Sly and The Family Stone were? Just check out the track listing for Stand! The title track, "I Want to Take You Higher". "You Can Make it if You Try", "Everyday People",(before it was a car commercial)--and this isn't even the greatest hits package! Hippies with attitude (and serious soul moves), Stone and crew were one of the most influential and free-wheeling forces in R&B/rock. Stand shows why. Gut bucket bass lines (thank you Larry Graham), joyous take-you-there anthems, and seething racial politics that made you move--and think--while on the dance floor. --Amy Linden
