Product Description


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

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Memories Jan. 25 2010
By Raymond A. Smith TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I'm sure I wore out several needles (not hypodermic!) on this album when it first came out in the 60's. I didn't think this album would ever be re-released due to the one not "Politicaly Correct" TITLED song on the album.This album does re-define that era, and it is just as relivant now as it was then! When you realy listen to the lyrics, it REALY makes you wonder......how far have we REALLY come since the 60's?

5.0 out of 5 stars Stand: an overlooked classic May 22 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I just bought this CD after reading about it in a guide to funk published in SPIN magazine. I personally have loved funk, soul, and hip-hop for years, but somehow I`d always overlooked Sly Stone, though I did enjoy the radio hits. Well, what they play on the radio is merely scratching the surface. "Stand" is a true masterpiece- a delicious mix of heavy funk, hook-laden pop, and still-relevant politics. It`s not hard to see how influential Sly`s music was, since one can hear traces of it in artists ranging from P-Funk to Snoop Dogg. The chunky yet melodic riffs on this album have also become a staple of 70`s movie soundtracks. Favorite tracks include "Somebody`s Watching You," "Sex Machine," and the timeless "Everyday People." And then there`s "Don`t Call Me Nigger, Whitey", with its scathing look at racism set to a choppy, irresistible groove. "Stand" has led me to search for Sly`s other works, as well. Truly an underrated and satisfying CD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Intoxicating and Superb! May 3 2004
By Samhot
Format:Audio CD
To say that Sly & The Family stone were influential is probably an understatement. Prince has admitted many times that he grew up listening to (and loving) Sly & Company's music, and if you listen to Prince's music, you can hear where he got some of his ideas and techniques. George Clinton and Parliament/Funkadelic were influenced as well. Sly was probably the singlemost interesting (not to mention, the baddest) funkmeister this side of James Brown (and for what it's worth, I grew up listening to, and loving the music of other funksters like The Ohio Players, Rufus/Chaka Khan, Earth, Wind & Fire, George Clinton and others.)
1969's _Stand_ is a non-stop joy-fest: it's almost impossible not to feel uplifted after listening to this. Similarly, it'll also be difficult to stay still, as the grooves on here are just sexy, funky, infectious and downright delicious. Sly mixed up genders and races in his band, and when listening to the music, you can feel the celebration of harmony, and desire for transcendence over the many ills that have plagued society for the longest time. It was all about injecting positivity and exuberance into this mix of psychedelic funk, soul and rock, and the sunny vibe that runs throughout this album is one of the many things that make this effort highly intoxicating - so intoxicating, that even after three decades since it's release, listeners are, more than possibly, still feeling drunk from it's juices.
Just take a look at some of the song titles: "Stand!," "I Want To Take You Higher," "You Can Make It If You Try" -- the vibes are positive and spiritually uplifting throughout. And leave it to clever Sly to turn something as controversial and touchy as racism ("Don't Call Me...") into something so sexy, intoxicating, scrumptious and downright orgasmic.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Funk Blueprint For Millenniums To Come Sept. 28 2003
Format:Audio CD
James Brown created the Funk but Sly took his groove to another level. This album even influenced James himself. Sly's "Sex Machine" was made before James made his. Album was so powerful it even influenced Jimi Hendrix. You can hear Jimi play the riff to "Sing A Simple Song" on his own Band Of Gypsys album. This album influenced too many artists to mention, the most noteworthy being George Clinton, Stevie Wonder, and Prince. This album was about 6 or 7 years ahead of its time back in 1969 and made all the other artists play catch-up. Of all the funkiest albums ever created by Man, this is in the Top 3. This is the album where Larry Graham pioneered the slap bass technique. "Hot Fun In The Sunshine" was not included on this album but was later released on Greatest Hits a year later.

5.0 out of 5 stars What an Album Better Than Life July 9 2003
Format:Audio CD
I first got into Sly and The Fam when I listened to "Theres A Riot Goin On". I thought that could not be beaten.I mean the albums incredible, from the begaining with the kick bum " Luv and Haight" to the mind blowing " Space cowboy" and "Running Away". The sort of dread that laces the album also stands out. Then through friends I was introduced to "Life" and then " Stand". what a pair of albums, you have everything. "Stand" just blows me away.From long musical exchanges from rock to funk, to stunning melodys that even Brian Wilson and Arthur Lee cant match and then the lyrics. The production is also worth mentioning. In the history of popular music the great producers are Brian Wilson and Phil Specter and George Martin. Well Sly, who produces most of the albums that the Family have done, just has a complete knack of making the music sound so complete. Buy it and be blown away.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hey Sly, Don't Be So FUNKY! Jan. 31 2003
Format:Audio CD
Y'all remember the Soul Clap? There's a lot of that goin' on on Sly & TFS's "Stand!"
I remember being filled with pride while shouting out the lyrics of the title cut, and at the same time being on the verge of bursting, waiting for the bridge at the end of the song, (STAND!/NA NA NA NA NA NA NA NA NA NA!)so I could show off my new moves! Who's writing songs today with such a combination?
Sly also gives Stevie some comp on the harmonica with his playing on "Don't Call Me Nigger, Whitey." He creates harmonics that have yet to be duplicated.
The rest of "Stand" is a bubbling caldron of funk for the ages. ("Higher", "Sex Machine", "Sing A Simple Song.")
I miss you Sly!
