Sly and The Family Stone geldt nog steeds als een van de meest innovatieve bands aller tijden. Vanaf 1966 ontwikkelde de band een tot dan toeongekende mix van soul, jazz, rock, R&B en psychedelia, die zeer invloedrijk zou blijken. Het boek brengt de gehele discografie van Sly and The Family Stone in beeld, van de eerste gospelopnames van The Stewart Four tot aan de onlangs uitgebrachte boxset, plus het solowerk van alle bandleden van voor en na het actieve bestaan van de groep - geïllustreerd met talloze plaat producties uit de hele wereld.
