Sly Stone Special on The Connection - Saturday June 9th!
There's a Riot Goin' On - this Saturday June 9th, join Jason Miles and The Connection for a two hour special in honor of Sly Stone. 40 years ago this month Sly released his first album, paving the way for Soul & Funk sounds of the 70's. In honor of the event, The Connection will be spinning the newly remastered and re-released classic from the group - There's A Riot Goin' On.
Riot is listed in Rolling Stone's Top 100 and is considered by music aficionados to be Sly's crowing achievement. Groundbreaking, dark and futuristic - the album redefined Black music of the 70's and colored the development of Hip-Hop in the years following it's release. In addition to the album in it's entirety, Jason will also be spinning some of the lesser-known singles Sly produced at the time in addition to unreleased studio demo's and oddities highlighting the genius of Sly Stone.
Definitely not a show to be missed...
