USA, 1971, funk / soul / psychedelic soul

Sly & The Family StoneThere’s a Riot Goin’ On

Setting aside all the profound sociopolitical circumstances out of which this album arose, this music is deep funk, so deep Sly can yodel and make it work, make it as black as the space that cowboy is floating in, so deep you can just fall into it and never stop falling. Amazing stuff.
