Sly And The Family Stone Live At The Fillmore East October 4th & 5th 1968

Live At The Fillmore East October 4th & 5th 1968 is a box set of live recordings by Sly And The Family Stone.

What we have are four different sets of Sly Stone performing live (two per night) in New York in an even earlier set than the Woodstock performance. By this stage, the band had released their third studio album Life but it’s before the big hits which started with Everyday People released in November 1968. It’s also before Sly Stone was overtaken by his drug addiction.

The Kids Are Alright is a film and live soundtrack album by The Who. The recordings range from July 1965 through to May 1978.
