The tumultuous hit making career of Sly & The Family Stone continues to reverberate in every single genre of contemporary music – from pop and R&B to hip-hop and jazz – more than three decades after the group’s last appearance on the Top 40 charts. The groundbreaking saga of Sly & The Family Stone was played out over the course of their seven original studio albums on Epic Records, recorded and released between 1967 and 1974: A WHOLE NEW THING (1967), DANCE TO THE MUSIC (1968), LIFE (1968), STAND! (1969), THERE’S A RIOT GOIN’ ON (1971), FRESH (1973), and SMALL TALK (1974). And now, 40 years on from Sly’s original signing to Epic, the catalog is being upgraded to a level worthy of these timeless classics. For the first (and last!) time, newly remastered, numbered expanded editions will be issued of all seven albums – with multiple (four to seven) bonus tracks on each CD (a total of 33 bonus tracks, 21 of them previously unreleased) and brand new liner notes written by some of today’s top music journalists. The seven albums will be manufactured in a strict limited edition run of custom digipaks, and they will not be re-pressed when they sell out. All seven albums will arrive in stores April 10th on Epic/Legacy, a division of SONY BMG MUSIC ENTERTAINMENT. Additionally, the seven titles will be available as a numbered, limited-edition box set.
