Sly & the Family Stone 1968 Fillmore East Performance Released for First Time

Sly & the Family Stone: Live At The Fillmore East October 4th & 5th, 1968Legendary funk/soul/R&B/rock band Sly & the Family Stone was energetic and on the rise in 1968, with two albums — Dance to the Music and Life — already behind them. Live At The Fillmore East October 4th & 5th, 1968, captures the sound of a great band with an incomparable electric bassist — Larry Graham, who went on to create his own band, Graham Central Station and record as a solo artist.

The set of previously unreleased music features early and late shows for each of the band’s two nights at the long-gone New York City venue.
