One of the most creative and tragic figures in soul music, Sly Stone sought to unite listeners on social and emotional levels with the undeniable power of his songs. The Family Stone echoed that vision through its integrated lineup and fusion of soul, funk, and rock. For a brief time, Sly Stone appeared to be the future of popular music, but drug use and band turmoil dissolved his promising career. Though Sly & The Family Stone's soul-infused music always conveyed unbridled joy, under their uplifting rhythms were critical commentaries on the state of America in the '60s and '70s. “Luv n' Haight” and “Thank You for Talkin' to Me, Africa” are funky and jubilant, yet also uncanny portraits of a country in upheaval. “Don't Call Me N****r, Whitey” sums up the group's cutting views on racial strife in one nasty, intoxicating groove. As the collective euphoria of the '60s gave way to the jaded hangover of the '70s, Sly & The Family Stone kept a constant groove. “I Cannot Make It” remains a perfect fusion of soul music's grit and rock 'n' roll's power, while “You're the One, Pt. 1 & 2” is a stomping slice of self-empowerment. Even the early-'80s jam “Same Thing” finds Sly's melodic gift for funk music intact.
