Celebrate the 50th Anniversary of There's A Riot Goin' On, Sly And The Family Stone's influential masterpiece of darkly psychedelic funk. The 1971 record features the singles "Family Affair", "Just Like A Baby" and "Africa Talks To You ("The Asphalt Jungle")". The influence of There's A Riot Goin' On rang throughout the '70s as all of the funk innovators took their cues from this seminal album, and its songs became a favourite for hip hop artists mining sampling gold decades later. 

The album marked a shift in the band's tone, striking a more political and militant vibe while showing Sly Stone's disillusionment with the promise of the '60s. At the same time, it was also a big commercial success, hitting #1 on the album charts while the single "Family Affair" topped the singles charts.

50th Anniversary Edition. Heavyweight RED vinyl produced by Epic Records in 2021.
