Sly & The Family Stone - 1968 - Live At The Fillmore

Sly and the Family Stone were an American rock, funk, and soul band from San Francisco, California. Active from 1966 to 1983, the band was pivotal in the development of soul, funk, and psychedelic music. Headed by singer, songwriter, record producer, and multi-instrumentalist Sly Stone, and containing several of his family members and friends, the band was the first major American rock band to have an "integrated, multi-gender" lineup. Fillmore East (New York, NY) Oct 5, 1968 two shows. These performances were recorded weeks after the release of Sly and the Family Stone's second album, Life, but just before the "Everyday People" single would vault the band to international recognition and incredible commercial success. The influence Sly and the Family Stone would soon have on the American music scene cannot be underestimated. It's safe to say they were a major force in the development of 1960s era funk and soul, but they would have equal influence on the likes of other musicians, including jazz great Miles Davis and rock guitar giant, Jimi Hendrix. The multicultural personnel of the band, as well as the inclusion of both men and women in the group, were virtually unheard of in the 1960s. The fact that these multicultural elements would blend so perfectly had far-reaching effects on both audiences and the music industry itself.(WV)
