Sly & the Family Stone

Video Find of the Day

I've said it before, I'll say it again, I didn't really take rock seriously until it turned funky. In particular James Brown and then, Sly & the Family Stone, got me going.

But who's the Sly-est of them all? Ed McMahon?

The next has a string of clips from rehearsals, plus excerpts from live performances. The video kind of loses steam toward the end, but the rehearsal scenes are worth it.

Then there's the Woodstock "Higher", which is in a class in itself.
