Product description

Amazon.co.uk

The Civil Rights movement was undergoing a gradual, fitful death, militant Black Power factions were gaining in popularity, and Stone himself had become dangerously addicted to cocaine. There's A Riot Goin' On was marked at the time to be the start of Sly and the Family Stone's decline, but it has since proved to be their most enduring album. There's A Riot Goin' On revelled in psychedelic menace, the sweet soul once favoured by the multi-racial musical collective now corrupted by the powerful hangover that eclipsed the hedonism of the previous decade. There's still a firm grasp of soul's vitality, as on "Family Affair," but it's the slow, murky funk of "Thankyou For Talkin' To Me Africa", and the freaked, deranged yodels of "Spaced Cow Boy" that prove enduring documents of Sly's dizzying take on the nation's social unrest. There's A Riot Goin' On is the sound of the world's biggest party turning sour from the inside. --Louis Pattison
