Little Sister: You're The One [1970]

This is a rare Sly Stone-produced single (for another one, see here). Little Sister was a trio consisting of Vaetta Stewart (Sly's little sister), Mary McCreary, and Elva Mouton. This song reminds me of an interview with Sly and the Family Stone drummer Greg Errico in which he described the song "Thank You (Falletinme Be Mice Elf...)" as "Intricate funk. Like a jigsaw puzzle. If you remove one piece, it becomes something different" (I'm paraphrasing). "You're The One" employs that same jigsaw-funk technology.

For more details on the history of Little Sister (and more music!), see Vaetta's great website and also this article.

My dad told me that Little Sister was his favorite group of singers.
