Family Affair" is my fav Sly record, I remember when their first hit "Dance to the music" came out in 1968 we just looked at each other and said "What the hell is that!" I hadn't heard anything that mindblowing since "papa's got a brand new bag".

The Family Stone had reached the level of cultural importance and resonance they’d been aiming for, but the view from those heights was dizzying. Desperately uncomfortable with his profile, Sly retreated from public life: he moved to Los Angeles, surrounded himself with a retinue described in various lurid and unflattering terms by his bandmates as dangerous, drug-fuelled and destabilising, and disappeared into a fug of narcotics and paranoia. Even the album’s hit single succeeds despite itself. Family Affair retains some of the old sense of hope, but it doesn’t make any attempt to dispel the doubts. A skeletal structure, two verses and choruses – more like a demo than a finished song – it contrasts the perfect blindness of a mother’s love with the convenient self-deceptions of a couple trapped in a marriage that their infidelities have rendered meaningless.
