2021 50th ANNIVERSARY REISSUE. LTD RED VINYL LP.
"There's A Riot Goin' On, Sly And The Family Stone's influential masterpiece of darkly psychedelic funk turns 50 in 2021. The album marked a shift in the band's tone, striking a more political and militant vibe while showing Sly Stone's disillusionment with the promise of the '60s. At the same time, it was also a big commercial success, hitting #1 on the album charts while the single "Family Affair" topped the singles charts. It's influence rang throughout the '70s as all of the funk innovators took their cues from this seminal album, and it's songs became a favorite for hip hop artist mining sampling gold decades later."
