There’s A Riot Going On was Sly & The Family Stone’s answer to Marvin Gaye’s What’s Going On?, the seminal Soul album that came out five months before the Sly Stone masterpiece. It’s a dark, earthy Funk album, that went straight to number 1 upon release. Single “Family Affair” also topped the charts, and is still one of Sly Stone’s most beloved tracks. It manages to capture the era of militant activism and deep social unrest in a brooding, moody album with tension that could cut through steel. It still appears on plenty of ‘Greatest Albums of All Time’ lists (Rolling Stone magazine placed it on #99 out of 500) and is seen as one of the most important and influential albums of the 1970s.
