Sly &The Family Stone. Medley. 1968.

Appearing on the Smothers Brother variety show, Sly and The Family Stone set out to disembowel those too prude to make their booty move. Here's a little medley of Everyday People and Dance to The Music. The man and the band were as tight as Mother Theresa's sphincter in this jam of jams. Check out the syncopation, and the call and response between band members. Way, way ahead of their time.

Larry Graham on bass always melts my face.


  1. Couldn't see the instruments, so couldn't tell which one was Larry Graham, but it seems that any one of those band members could be a monster hitmaker today.

  2. A crack team of forceable funkifiers.
