After the success of our 2009 blockbuster remaster of Back On The Right Track, Friday Music is more than happy to oblige to the fans with a new remaster of Sly & The Family Stone's classic Ain't But The One Way.
This second and final release for Warner Bros. was Sly Stone's only real entry into the eighties, and also the last official album from this legendary artist. For this particular release, Sly and Co. continue their funk trip well into the future with some definitive grooves like the classic Who In The Funk Do You Think You Are, as well as the hit rocker High, Y'all.
It is no secret that Sly & The Family Stone appealed big time to a faithful rock audience, therefore, it's appropriate that they nod to The Kinks with a classic funk rock remake of the Ray Davies' belter You Really Got Me.
The nine songs that make up 1983's Ain't But The One Way may be the last ever recorded tracks by this legendary artist and his Family of Stone, but they will live on forever with this wonderful new reissue. Remastered impeccably from the original Warner Bros. tapes by Joe Reagoso, plus use of the original artwork elements from the rare LP package, this very hip recording will sit proudly next to your copies of Stand!, There's A Riot Goin' On and Back On The Right Track.
