“There’s a Riot Goin’ On” is the album I always return to whenever I want to listen to Sly and the Family Stone. The album’s dark and somber tone was written during a period when the country was at war with itself. The civil rights movement was coming to end and the people were trying to figure out just how the country was going to move forward. The group produced an album that captured the modern time.
One of the best songs from the album is “Just Like a Baby” which features a slow and steady beat that incorporates the band’s funk sound. Check it out.
