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.

Maze Live In Los Angeles 1986

Live In Los Angeles is the second live album by Maze featuring Frankie Beverly to be released. It is also available in some regions as a DVD.

It was recorded at the Universal Amphitheatre on 1 January 1986 and follows on from the excellent Live In New Orleans.

It comes in two formats:

  • a single CD/mp3 download with 13 tracks as originally released in 1986
  • a double CD/mp3 download with 18 tracks in the 2003 remastered version

Both are readily available and therefore care needs to be taken to make sure you get the version you want. Like the earlier New Orleans album, it has been extended by the inclusion of new tracks recorded in the studio. This is odd considering the latest version is still criticised for not including the full concert.
