Everyday People 45 by Sly & The Family Stone

December 22, 2010

At one time Sly & The Family Stone mattered. Ther were a cutting edge R&B/Funk band who were inducted into The Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame in 1994.

They also were responsible for some of the most cutting edge socio-political lyrics of the late sixties and early seventies.

“Everyday People” was their biggest hit topping the BILLBOARD MAGAZINE Pop Charts for four weeks during late 1968 and early 1969. It was an upbeat and funky tune that featured Sly’s keyboards/vocals, guitarist Freddie Stone, bassist Larry Graham, drummer Gregg Errico, trumper Cynthia Robinson, and pianist/vocalist Rosie Stone.

It remains a nice slice of late sixties music.
