Sly & the Family Stone
"Greatest Hits" (Vinyl)

The influential funk/soul/R&B/psychedelic band from San Francisco was an embodiment of the tumultuous and revolutionary 1960's that saw civil rights, anti-war movements and gender segregation come under scrutiny in America.

Considered an influence by many important musical acts of their generation (and subsequent ones) they enjoyed prominence from 1967 to 1983.

This album, released in 1970 features the hits from their three previously released albums, 'Dance to the Music,' 'Life' and 'Stand!' Remarkably, one of the band's most important albums, 'There's a Riot Goin' On' was to be released in 1971.
