THIS IS LOVE by Sly and the Family Stone.
Last one of features from the new Sly box. This Is Love has been early vote as the biggest revelation. It's from the tail end of "Small Talk" which is either the last great or first (or even second) mediocre Sly album, depending on who you ask. It's an album I'd only ever heard singles from, so This Is Love was brand new.
It sounds more like Funkadelic's Can You Get To That than like vintage Sly, but admittedly they're all close relatives. And anyway that's not a bad thing. It's been on repeat here all week! Enjoy your weekend.
