There's A Riot Goin' On – Sly & The Family Stone
"There's A Riot Going On" was Sly&The Family Stone's answer to "What's Going On" by Marvin Gay, the groundbreaking soul album released just five months before the Sly Stone masterpiece. It's a dark, earthy soul album that landed on the number one charts right after its release.
The single "Family Affair" also led the charts and is still one of the band's most popular tracks. The era of militant activism and social unrest is captured here on a thoughtful, moody album with an inner tension that could cut through steel. One of the most influential albums of the seventies!
