Sly Stone Box Set - Higher!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.

These tracks are supplemented by a painstakingly detailed 104-page book 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.

Compiled by Dutch authorities Edwin & Arno Konings, the track-by-track annotations contain excerpts from Thank You, the Koningses' own forthcoming biography of Sly & The Family Stone.
