Sly as ever

Business Week devotes an entire page to Sly and the Family Stone, Sylvester Stewart in particular ("Just as Sly As He Ever Was"), now that at last a remastered version of all the Epic recordings has been released on CD. The author does not overlook Sly's accomplishments as a composer and producer. This music is probably second only to that of James Brown in being frequently sampled. I'm glad to have heard this music live so many times. People always had a crush on Sly or on Cynthia or on both.
