Recorded in 1969, the fourth album from Sly And The Family Stone, "Stand!" was the crowning musical statement by this unisex, multi-racial rock and soul combo from the Bay Area of San Francisco, featuring four chart hits, including the number one smash "Everyday People", "Stand!" virtually invented the 'progressive' funk of the 1970s and 80s, jettisoning the trappings of 60s soul and paving the way for a new sound that would influence other artists to this day.
A classic masterpiece and a blueprint for the funk to come later in the 70s. A must have for any funkateer and music fans to dig.
All things wonderful about Sly & The Family Stone in the first years of their existence came together on their 1969 album Stand The enthusiasm the blurring of lines the testing of boundaries it all blends together in the Funk of the Family Stone
