Happy 75th Birthday Sly Stone!
Sly & The Family Stone – I Want To Take You Higher
This song was one of the highlights and memorable performances at Woodstock in the summer of 1969.
It comes from the album, ‘Stand!” and it isn’t any sort of “message song”. It’s just about the feeling you get listening to music, especially a rockin’, funky, upbeat tune like this one.
It peaked at #38 on the Billboard Hot 100.
