Life (Bonus Tracks)

Life by Sly & the Family Stone
Released: Sep 1968
Label: Epic/Legacy
Following the breakout hit of "Dance to the Music" in 1968, the Bay Area-based funk group was seemingly on top of the world. This, their third album, tries to replicate the freewheeling funk of "Dance" with considerably less success. "Dynamite" actually quotes their hit in the song's coda, while the acid-warped "Plastic People" quotes the Beatle's "Eleanor Rigby." "Chicken" well, quotes a chicken while taunting an unsure tripper. Yep, it's that kind of party.
