Hear ‘Dance To The Music’ From Sly & The Family Stone ‘Live At The Fillmore East’ – Rolling Stone
In 1968, Sly & The Family Stone visited New York to play four shows over two days at downtown’s storied Fillmore East. Epic Records taped the performances for a potential live album, but that was put on hold when “Everyday People” went to Number One the following year. Now, the entire run is scheduled come out July 17th on Legacy Recordings as Sly & The Family Stone – Live At The Fillmore East October 4th & 5th 1968.
Exclusively at Rolling Stone, you can hear one of the most memorable tracks: the October 4th late show take on “Dance To The Music.” When the band kicks in after the first scat break, they form a loose mass of funk, each instrument swirling around and bouncing off the others.
