The legacy of Sly & the Family Stone has not been treated well by the CD age, but that oversight is more than rectified by the simply astonishing seven-disc box set THE COLLECTION. This near-complete set covers the essential years of Sly & the Family Stone, featuring newly remastered versions of all seven of the San Francisco acid-funk pioneers' classic albums from 1967 to 1974: A WHOLE NEW THING, DANCE TO THE MUSIC, LIFE, STAND, THERE'S A RIOT GOIN' ON, FRESH and SMALL TALK. While the set oddly neglects the hit non-LP singles "Hot Fun in the Summertime," "Everybody Is A Star" and "Thank You Falletinme Be Mice Elf Agin," it does feature 23 never-before-released bonus tracks. The box is lavishly packaged and exquisitely detailed. Sly & the Family Stone's music is both hugely influential--without Sly, there simply is no Prince--and gloriously listenable, and THE COLLECTION finally does the band justice.
