The story behind the making of the album that signaled the descent of Sylvester Sly Stone Stewart into a haze of drug addiction and delirium is captivating enough for the cinema. In the spacious attic of a Beverly Hills mansion belonging to John and Michelle Phillips (of the Mamas and the Papas) during the fall of 1970, Sly Stone began recording his follow-up to 1969's "Stand!" the most popular album of his band's career.

Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

"Don't hate the black, don't hate the white. If you get bitten, just hate the bite," Sly Stone advised America in 1968. You can make it if you try, different strokes for different folks, and you don't have to die before you live are a mere few of the optimistic messages spread in songs by Sly and the Family Stone during the heady days of the Summer of Love and Woodstock. Then times...changed. By the 1971 release of the stylishly mournful masterpiece There's a Riot Goin' On, the man who once sang of hot fun in the summertime warned, "Watch out 'cause the summer gets cold / When today gets too old." Riot laid a sonic backdrop for the nationwide cultural and political disintegration of 1960s fallout, as well as the personal dissolution of disillusioned idealist Sly Stone.
