Sly and the Family Stone Box Set Coming This Summer

Though they were the greatest funk/pop/rock/freak show of their generation, Sly and the Family Stone managed to make it through the whole box-set heyday of the 1990s without getting one of their own. That wrong is gonna get righted on August 27 when Epic/Legacy releases Higher! The box pulls together 77 tracks beginning with Sly's early efforts as a solo performer through the Family years and back to his return to a solo act circa 1977. The standard set includes seventeen unreleased tracks while an additional six appear on a bonus disc exclusive to sets being sold on, which you can pre-order on CD or vinyl here:
