Some Yodeling Sunday Soul
We are going in deep today folks with the narcotic grooves, seductive vocals slurs, leering electric pianos, and crawling guitars (Stephen Thomas Erlewine - All Music) of Sly and the Family Stone's 1971 solid stoned out funky masterpiece There's a Riot Goin' On.
An album that reflects the end of the 60's era of love and peace and one recorded by a band who had been consuming industrial quantities of drugs.
It is almost certainly the only album in the Soul section which contains yodeling . It must be cross pollination from the neighbouring Country section
More Soul but no yodeling next Sunday
Sly and the Family Stone - (You Caught Me) Smilin'
Sly and the Family Stone - Spaced Cow Boy
