Sly & The Family Stone: If You Want Me To Stay

A top 20 hit, "If You Want Me to Stay" was a 1973 single by Sly & the Family Stone, from the Fresh album. This is what I lovingly refer to as Sly's drug voice, which also surfaced on "Family Affair".

a note from Emmett: I'm throwing in In Time as a bonus cut, because A) it rules so hard, B) it features a legendary performance from Andy Newmark (playing along with a drum machine), and C) according to something I read once, Miles Davis was obsessed with it.

I'm not saying that ANYTHING can touch In Time, but as far as contemporary bands go, this brief side project called Fantastic 4's take on In Time is pretty cool.

Let's try that again: In Time

Nice one, Ace! They obviously studied the original pretty closely. Who's in this band? What are they a side project of?

Robert Walter is one of my favorites ever...such a talented player.

Eric Krasno - guitar (Soulive)
Robert Walter - organ, Fender Rhodes, bass (20th Congress/Greyboy Allstars)
Cheme Gastelum - sax (20th Congress)
Adam Deitch - drums (John Scofield)
