IF it was desert island disc time this would be there! From one of the top three acts ever, comes a definative greatest 'hits', although that is cringeworthy! What must be realised is that the collection of songs presented here, are some of the most soulful efforts ever to grace tape.
The styles attempted (and mastered) are still unequalled in modern music. You really want to know how to collude jazz, rock, soul, dance, take a lesson from Sly.
Its is a pity not more of the Epic period LP's are avaiable (Stand!, Life, Dance to the Music), but as an introduction and gateway which has a 'NO RETURN' policy (which is a good thang)beg steal borrow ( sly would be proud of you )!!
