Hear Unreleased Sly & The Family Stone Cut ‘Life of Fortune and Fame’ – SPIN

Sly Stone & Cynthia Robinson

Exclusively at SPIN, you can listen to one of the unreleased tracks from Higher!, the 4-CD Sly & The Family Stone box set in stores August 27. Recorded during the Dance to the Music album sessions in July of 1967, the cut “Life of Fortune and Fame” starts off slowly but soon turns into a fully realized rock/soul fusion that was left, surprisingly, in the vaults up until now. It’s a song that Sly revisited several times early in his career.

Listen to “Life of Fortune and Fame” now at SPIN.
