Sly Stone / Various - I'm Just Like You: Sly's Stone Flower


"In 1970, The Family Stone were at the peak of their popularity, but the maestro Sly Stone had already moved his head to a completely different space. The first evidence of Sly's musical about-turn was revealed by the small catalog of his new label, Stone Flower: a pioneering, peculiar, minimal electro-funk sound that unfolded over just four seven-inch singles. Stone Flower's releases were credited to their individual artists, but each had Sly's design and musicianship stamped into the grooves-and the words ''Written by Sylvester Stewart/Produced and arranged by Sly Stone'' on the sticker.

Set up by Stone's manager David Kapralik with distribution by Atlantic Records, Stone Flower was, predictably, a family affair: the first release was by Little Sister, fronted by Stone's little sister Vaetta Stewart.

The first 45 came in February 1970: Little Sister's dancefloor-ready ''You're The One'' hit Number 22 in the charts-the label's highest showing. The follow-up, ''Stanga,'' also by Little Sister, made the wah pedal the star. The third release came from 6IX, a six-piece multi-racial rock group whose sole release, a super-slow version of The Family Stone's ''Dynamite,'' featured only the lead singer and harmonica player from the group. Joe Hicks was the final Stone Flower stablemate; his pulsing, electronic ''Life And Death In G&A'' is one of the bleakest moments Sly Stone ever created on disc (Hicks' prior single for Scepter, ''Home Sweet Home,'' the first released St
