I'M JUST LIKE YOU: SLY'S STONE FLOWER 1969-70 Vinyl Record
Double vinyl LP pressing in gatefold sleeve. 2014 collection of track originally recorded in 1969-70 on R&B/Rock legend Sly Stone's Stone Flower label. Set up by Stone's manager David Kapralik with distribution by Atlantic Records, Stone Flower was, predictably, a family affair: the first release was by Little Sister, fronted by Stone's little sister Vaetta Stewart. It was short lived too-the imprint folded in 1971-but it's influence was longer lasting. The sound Stone formulated while working on Stone Flower's output would shape the next phase in his own career as a recording artist: it was here he began experimenting with the brand new Maestro Rhythm King drum machine. This long overdue compilation of Sly's Stone Flower era gathers each side of the five 45's plus 10 previously unissued cuts from the label archives, all newly remastered from the original tapes. In these grooves you'll find the missing link between the rocky, soulful Sly Stone of STAND! And the dark, drum machine-punctuated, overdubbed sound of THERE'S a RIOT GOIN' ON. I'm JUST LIKE YOU: SLY'S STONE FLOWER 1969-70 opens up the mysteries of an obscure but monumental phase in Stone's career.
