Before you ask this band isn’t a side project of ancient action star Sylvester Stallone.

It came up naturally in conversation a few days back when talking about older soul music, and I mentioned 70’s soul royalty Sly and the Family Stone, and was met with a confused look which said; who the hell are they?

Coming from a family which listened to soul and motown since as far back as I can remember, I first stumbled upon them about six years ago by going down the safe route of a greatest hits.

What I was met with was songs which had the flavour of soul but the funk of Stevie Wonder’s finest work, with also a hint of The Jackons.

So I feel it is my duty to introduce you to Sly and the Family Stone, enjoy!
