Red Vinyl LP Cut By Kevin Gray!

Rolling Stone 500 Greatest Albums of All Time - Rated 82/500!

Since it took almost two years to make, the fifth album by now bonafide superstars Sly & The Family Stone had everyone salivating in anticipation. Needless to say, Sly did not disappoint! 1971's There's A Riot Goin' On finds the Bay Area-based genius getting funkier than before, even as his artistic vision becomes darker. Some may have been disappointed that Sly didn't simply recreate the chart successes of earlier singles, but who can argue with the flat-out brilliance of turning recent big hit "Thank You (Falettinme Be Mice Elf Agin)" on its head to create the mind-boggling "Thank You For Talkin' To Me Africa." Two of this hypnotic album's best tunes "Family Affair" and "Runnin'' Away" were gigantic chart hits, proving beyond any doubt that Sly Stone could totally deliver the goods! Bob Irwin's definitive master finally gets the cut it deserves in this Kevin Gray cut red slab!

"This highly anticipated studio follow-up to Sly and the Family Stone's 1969 blast of hope, Stand!, was the grim, exact opposite: implosive, numbing, darkly self-referential. Sly Stone's voice is an exhausted grumble; the funk in "Family Affair," "Runnin' Away" and especially the closing downward spiral, "Thank You for Talkin' to Me Africa," is spare and bleak, fiercely compelling in its anguish over the unfulfilled promises of civil rights and hippie counterculture. "It is Muzak with its finger on the trigger," wrote critic Greil Marcus in Mystery Train. Take that as a recommendation." -
