Review #82: There’s A Riot Goin’ On, Sly and the Family Stone

#82: There’s a Riot Goin’ On, Sly and the Family Stone

Apparently, this album was supposed to be titled “Africa Talks To You,” but they retitled it as a response to the album Marvin Gaye released six months earlier, What’s Goin’ On? Which as you might recall is RS’s pick for #1 album of all time. What’s goin’ on? There’s a riot goin’ on!
