10/18/13: Sly & The Family StoneHigher!

Celebrate International Funk Day on Friday, October 18th with a brand new, career spanning, two-part Sly & the Family Stone radio special. The special includes music from the first-ever deluxe Sly & the Family Stone 4-cd anthology box set, Higher!, released August 27th, also honoring Sly’s 70th birthday in 2013.  The collectible package features 77 tracks, including 17 previously unreleased cuts.

All through the brilliant highs and the murky lows of the late ’60s and early ’70s, Sly & The Family Stone had the globe dancing to the music. The creativity of the mixed-race, mixed-gender, and mixed-genre band shines in this CD of highlights from the new 77-track, four-cd box set. This incredible collection showcases the classic hits not just in stereo format, but in the good ol’ mono mixes which went missing long ago with the transistor radio, and in unheard studio outtakes, and concert performances.

The legacy of Sly & The Family Stone persists through four decades of movie and TV soundtracks, commercials, radio playlists, and parties worldwide, and influenced countless makers of rock, funk, jazz, and hip-hop. Here s a chance to take it Higher!
