Product description

Product Description

After 2 years in production the follow-up to Sly & The Family Stone s 1969 smash Stand! was unveiled. Containing radio hits like Family Affair, Runnin Away, and (You Caught Me) Smilin , it also (in true Sly fashion) dove deeper into a trippy sonic and lyrical universe exploring societal tensions ( Brave & Strong ) the motherland ( Thank You For Talkin To Me Africa ), personal relationships ( Just Like A Baby ) and artistic expression itself ( Poet ). The album reached #1 on both Pop and R&B charts and years later, was certified platinum, gaining tens of thousands of new fans with each passing year. Sly definitively explained his concept for the cover art I wanted the flag to truly represent people of all colors. I wanted suns instead of stars because stars to me imply searching, like you search for your star. And there are already too many stars in this world. But the sun, that s something that is always there, looking right at you. Betsy Ross did the best she could with what she had. I thought I could do better. That flag has been lovingly recreated by Get On Down, presented on the CD box cover as an actual embroidered fabric square to bring textureto an album which is already full to the brim with feeling. It s a perfect way to pay tribute to one of the 20th century's musical geniuses a man who brought fans together during one of America's most turbulent eras.
