Would you like extra stink with that?

by Chris Randall

Watch what happens when a ringer (e.g. Sly And The Family Stone) enters a talent contest (e.g. the 1968 Ohio State Fair.) Basically, they win. I've worked production at things like this dozens of times, but I've never seen a Sly-quality band win. Usually, it's a 12-year-old that has memorized "Moonlight Sonata."

though i prefer the coke-addled solo sly of "riot", i must say that was fucking awesome!!!

on a side note:

"that's some groovy bread!"

did that guy really say that?? what a square!!

I really think it was the dance moves that pushed them over the top.

BTW ? 10 large IS groovy bread!

All we need is a drummer, for people who only need a beat...

That's it! I'm giving up music now.

Nothing I could ever do could be one percent as great as that.

Q: How do you stop the spread of AIDS?

A: Give it a recording contract from TVT.

Yeah, way off topic, but I'm drunk now.

God damn that was HOT! Wish I had been around to see them live.

You could probably buy a Cadillac with $10,000 of "groovy bread" back then.

i'm digging the silverface twin reverb and bassman-head.

not digging the fact that they didn't mic the Rhodes' awesome suitcase speakers. probably sounded great in the crowd, but we can't hear it

now, who's got the vid of the band that used that LESLIE!!??
