In my early teen years, boys and girls, I LOVED Sly and the Family Stone. To this day, I revere the 1971 Greatest Hits album- it's a collection of Funk, rock and soul that few others can match. I also have deep abiding love for 1973's Fresh and 1975's High on You, and the pre-Hits albums are all certified classics.
Now, it's beginning to look like Sly, now in his 60's, is making baby steps towards a comeback- this time for real, and none of that fubar'ed Grammy Awards show stuff. Go here for an amazing interview with the man himself, as well as some discussion of where he's been since the 70's. Here's a slide show of pics, several of which I haven't seen before.
