We have two pretty awesome releases for you today: the Sly Stone - Higher! 8LP Box Set which is limited to 1000 numbered copies, and our 2nd Faith No More album, again in a first pressing on coloured vinyl...which colour you ask? Read on...
SLY & THE FAMILY STONE - HIGHER! =LTD BOX SET=
Released in celebration of Sly Stone's 70th birthday, Higher! is the first career-spanning anthology to celebrate the musician whose funk has influenced everyone from Miles Davis and Michael Jackson to Public Enemy and the Roots.
This 8LP collection offers the chance to experience the songs you know and love but often in alternate versions, including mono singles, demos, instrumental tracks, live concert and television recordings, and more. The box set features 77 tracks, 17 of them previously unreleased. But that's not all...
These tracks are supplemented by a painstakingly detailed 104-page book (click for a preview, it's gorgeous!) featuring a liner notes essay, a beautifully-illustrated timeline of Sly's career, track-by-track annotations, rare and uncirculated photography, 45 rpm label and picture sleeve repros, eye-popping vintage concert posters and ticket stubs from Sly & The Family Stone shows, and more.
Having a new guitarist in their ranks, Faith No More recorded 12 fresh songs in the comfort of bassist Billy Gould's home studio. These sessions produced two hits: "Ashes To Ashes" and "Last Cup Of Sorrow".
At its release in 1997 Album Of The Year was pressed on LP in small quantities, making original vinyl copies very hard to find. To stir up some attention we've thrown in a special first run of 2000 copies on GOLD vinyl – must be seen to be believed. Don't sleep on this one.
