Sly & The Family Stone A Whole New Thing 180g Import LP
180g Audiophile Vinyl! Debut Album!
A Whole New Thing is the debut album of Sly and the Family Stone, released in
1967. Unlike later Sly and the Family Stone albums, A Whole New Thing was
recorded live in the studio instead of being overdubbed and featured less of a
Pop feel than later releases such as Dance to the Music and Stand!. The lead
vocals are shared between Sly Stone, Freddie Stone, and Larry Graham; Rose Stone would not join the band until they began work on Dance to the Music.
The album is more restrained and not nearly as funky or psychedelic as their
subsequent efforts, owing far more to traditional Soul arrangements. These
aren't that traditional, though; Sly is already using goofier and/or more
thoughtful lyrics than the Soul norm, and taking some cues from Rock in his
adventurous and unexpected song construction.
