This Fillmore performance took place after the bands second albums release ” Life” and prior to “Everyday People” single release.

I will never forget me and a group of friends dancing in a basement when “Dance To The Music” came out, a lot of good memories from that time. They said Sly was terrified of performing live but you could have fooled me. There was some mighty performances played out at Woodstock a year after this concert but that particular performance of “Higher” by this band was one of the HIGHEST points.

So on this fillmore album you get to taste some very early Sly and the Family Stone. So Enjoy and Vision just a fraction of music from 1968. When it was Rock, Soul, Funk & Fun.
