I have listened to Sly on and off since attending youth clubs in the 1960s. I have a substantial record and cd collection, including a number of Sly's classic albums, which I revisited before ordering this product. To my ear, much of modern pop music is bland and derivative at best, but much of the soul and rhythmic funk of Sly's output still sounds totally cool. I've missed him, always hoping there would be some time he might get it together and come back to us. This collection of tracks is the next best thing, revealing hidden gems and alternative takes on known numbers.
I don't understand why Sly hasn't reached quite the legendary status of other iconic and innovatory musicians. This superbly packaged product deserves to be widely heard as it is the best thing yet to reflect his output and versatility. Buy it!

Format: Audio CD
It is depressing that a month after its release there is only a single UK review of this superlative box-set from one of the true greats of 20th century popular music who should be mentioned in the same breath as The Beatles, Stones, Beach Boys, Dylan, JB, Wonder, Gaye, Marley, Miles, etc. It is a fact that Sly is becoming increasingly marginalised in the pantheon of popular music greats probably as a result of his spectacular implosion in the early-mid 70s and it looks like this set isn't going to act as a corrective to that sad state of affairs. It could be that this box will yield underwhelming sales figures just like those of the superlative early noughties "Essential" 2CD compilation which should be the starting point for any neophyte to this extraordinary artist.

This genesis of this 4CD set goes back as far as 2008 and has apparently gone through several iterations over the years (3CD, 3CD+DVD, 3xStudio/1xLive CDs, etc) until it reached the 4CD version now on sale which comprises mostly studio tracks with a smattering of live tracks from TV appearances and a few from the '70 Isle Of Wight Festival (brilliant performances). The set proceeds chronologically from Sly & the family's inception in the mid-60's, through the break up of the band in the early 70's to Sly own tragic dissolution in the mid-70's (a good place to stop since after this there has been no break in the clouds).

The track listing comprises plenty of mono-mixes of the essential Sly & The Family Stone 1960's singles (going to stereo in the 70's) with typically a punchier sound than their stereo album counterparts.

A fantastic box set, but my only disappointment is that the American box set comes with a 5th bonus cd.

When this box set finally arrived the other day I was instantly struck with the beautiful packaging this box set has. The colours and 10" box set look great as is the superb colour booklet that contains many pictures of the band. As well as very comprehensive info on the tracks on the CDs.
The first CD I played was the bonus 5 song EP. This is a superb disc in its own right. The medley track is a revelation as is the instrumental bonus song Dust To Dust.
The track selection on the 4 main CDs is going to disappoint some purists and fans of Sly Stone, but I have enjoyed the many songs that are not that familiar to me, especially the many sessions from 1967 included in this box set. 1967 was a very prolific time for Sly and the band.
The Mono Singles included are interesting with a different sound and feel to the stereo versions. What impressed me is the sound quality of these tracks, they sound fresh and with more dynamics.
I am also impressed with how good Sly's later music is. He continued to produce good music up to the mid 1970s despite his issues with drugs.
Sadly he has not produced anything like the music Sly made from the tracks on this box set. We are lucky to have a box set of some great music that has a happy vibe and great melodies that I am enjoying immensly.
