Sly & The Family Stone Announce Live Album

Sly & The Family Stone have announced details regarding the release of their upcoming new live album, Sly & The Family Stone-Live At The Fillmore East October 4th & 5th 1968, recorded at Bill Graham’s famed NYC concert venue. Each night in October 1968 featured an early and a late set and all four performances are included in the four-disc album scheduled for release Friday, July 17 through Legacy Recordings. A special double LP vinyl collection of the best of each set, compiled by The Roots’ guitarist “Captain” Kirk Douglas, will be released this Saturday, April 18 as part of Record Store Day.


Marking the first album of primarily live material, the performances were originally taped by the band’s record label at the time, Epic Records. The label decided to shelve the release of the live material in favor of the band’s popular studio recordings including the No. 1 single “Everyday People” and the LP Stand!


“This performance is living breathing evidence of how much of a force of nature Sly & the Family Stone were at this point of their career,” said “Captain” Kirk Douglas. “Every member of the group shines in a way that I can only describe as a revelation. It was enjoyable listening to the band break free from the studio arrangements of the songs we know and love to find new interpretations.  And to think they did this twice in one evening! The heaviest of rock and the funkiest of soul jumps out of the speakers combined with a message just as relevant today as the day it was recorded. This deserves to be played LOUD!”
