It’s a family affair.
Sly & The Family Stone’s There’s a Riot Goin On’ album is being reissued on vinyl in celebration of its 50th anniversary, via Legacy Recordings this December.
Originally released in 1971, There’s a Riot Goin On’ saw Sly & The Family Stone move away from the more optimistic, psychedelic soul of previous albums to reflect upon the turbulent political climate in America at the time.
The album was a commercial success, reaching #1 on the US album charts, with ‘Family Affair’ becoming an enduring classic.
