Indeed and what better way to celebrate than by listening to his 1975 "solo" album?
The sound of "High On You" is classic 70's Family Stone so always thought the fact that it was credited to "Sly Stone" was maybe a weird record company stipulation or something? Anyway IMO it's his best post-"Fresh" album so definitely worth a listen. De La Soul fans might recognize "Crossword Puzzle" (below) as being sampled on "3 Feet High & Rising".
And speaking of De La, apparently it was clearing all the sampling rights that made it take forever to get their stuff on streaming services. Makes Trugoy's recent passing extra sad but better late than never I guess.
