Another Sly tune from their dark and drug-addled days in Los Angeles – which again sounds much more positive than their biography of the time would lead one to expect…
The beat is great and I love the keyboards, but it is the vocals that really make the song for me – Sly’s raspy voice, and also the intimacy of it, the way it’s is pushed forward in the mix. Listen to it on headphones and it sounds like Sly and his sister Rose are right there next to you, singing to you.
