"I Want To Take You Higher"

Imagine you're wearing the sharpest clothes in all Creation, made out of all sorts of spacey fabrics and colours, moving like a snake with the serious horn, showing off all your fine booty and emphasizing just what a tip-top lover-man or -girl you are. You're sipping on fine wines, dropping 'bon mots' like confetti and generally feeling just about as good as you can. OK. Got that? Well, you may just be cool enough to hang out with this song. Sly & the Family Stone were a riot of colour, rhythm, noise, space and light. They threw great big house-parties of songs, crowded funk-outs that were always this short of spiralling out of control, rhythms falling over one another... this is for dancing like you just don't care.
