A stone-cold classic brought back to vinyl LP by Music on Vinyl. What more can be said about Sly & The Family Stone’s groovy, incendiary and unique There’s a Riot Goin’ On? This is deep and inventive funk full of the tightest playing imaginable and soulful, politicised vocals. This album redefined 1970s soul and created a formula that has been copied for decades.

8/10 Customer review, 16th May 2016

If you've never heard Sly & the Family Stone before, start with Stand! and Fresh. For many, that will be all they ever want. This album is Stand! turned inside up and upside in by a narcotic, gun toting haze. Thing is, it's also very, very good. To make things perfectly clear: Sly was drugged out of his bleepin' mind when he recorded There's A Riot Goin' On. It's a testament to his enormous talent that he managed to get out an album so funky. The sound of the album is sometimes frustratingly murky. His vocals are slurred. All part of the package.
