Bringing Back the Funk with Sly Stone

After disappearing from the music scene for more than two decades, Sly Stone reemerged in 2011 with a brand new album, I’m Back! Family & Friends. With such a fitting title, we’re transported to the height of early 1970’s funk, complete in its synthesis of R&B, soul and jazzy rhythms.

A musical prodigy, Stone is a master at keyboard, guitar, bass and drums and has led a long career as musician, songwriter, and record producer. He is most celebrated for his role as frontman for Sly and the Family Stone, a band which pioneered early funk and soul, and later inspired artists such as Prince and Rick James. I’m Back! features revamped Family Stone singles and three new originals, including “Plain Jane,” which is just as amazing as Stone’s ageless 1970 hits, heavy on bass grooves and infectious vocals. We are happy to house “Plain Jane” in our Vintage Collection for a blast of feel-good energy and funk. Listen below and enjoy.
