"Sly And The Family Stone, Life - 140 Gram Vinyl"

SLY & THE FAMILY STONE - LIFE - 140 Gram Limited Edition classic LP high-definition Virgin Vinyl pressing for superior fidelity. First, let me say that this recording is non-stop fun and brilliance. Life is Sly at his best. It's one of his most consistent releases and my personal favorite. Now, on to setting the "record" straight. Amazon's mis-informed editorial reviewer erroneously puts Life's release BEFORE The Family Stone's breakthrough album, Dance To The Music. Anyone experiencing the original vinyl issues of Sly's discography as they happened remembers the chronology: A Whole New Thing (1967); Dance To The Music (Spring/Summer 1968); Life (Fall/Winter 1968). The title track from DTTM hit the singles charts in Summer 1968. Life was the superior sounding follow-up LP that offered funk rock and pop at its finest (M'Lady, Into My Own Thing, Fun, I'm An Animal, etc.). Jane Is A Groupee is arguably one of the most explosive cuts that Sly ever tracked. Life's title song was released as the first single from the record, but failed to follow DTTM up the charts. The group would later return with hit singles like Everyday People, Hot Fun In The Summertime, Everybody Is A Star and Thank You (Falettinme Be Mice Elf Agin).
