Eight 180-gram LPs of classic and rare Sly & The Family Stone

17 previously unreleased tracks — mono, live, outtakes, instrumentals

104-page book of incredible and rare photos, memorabilia

Extensive essay, track-by-track notes, and timeline

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 new 77-track, 8 LP box set. This incredible collection (plated and pressed at RTI) 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 early versions, and concert performances. Also included are gems from Sly Stewarts' pre-Family Stone period, studio outtakes, and potent instrumentals from this archetype of jam bands. With 17 previously unreleased tracks, it's a lot more music than you knew was there all remastered to hit the pinnacle of sound on 180-gram audiophile vinyl.

This powerful music is accompanied by a stunningly colorful and evocatively detailed 104-page, 12-inch book of rare photographs, posters, picture sleeves, recording documents, vintage ads, and other memorabilia, along with extensive liner notes by Jeff Kaliss (author of Sly s only authorized biography), track-by-track annotations, and a detailed timeline of Sly and The Family's life and career. 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!
