Life is the third studio album by funk/soul band Sly and the Family Stone, released in September 1968 on Epic/CBS Records. Many of its songs, including "M'Lady", "Fun", "Love City", as well as the title track, became popular staples in the Family Stone's live show.

Sly & the Family Stone. Just a matter of months after Dance to the Music, Sly & the Family Stone turned around and delivered Life, a record that leapfrogged over its predecessor in terms of accomplishment and achievement.

Produced by Sly Stone. All: Life, Life Past the clouds You don't have to come down. Life, Life Tell it like it is You don't have to die before you live. Larry: You might get angry some times But don't let it turn you around All you gotta do Is get your livin' down. Insane in the Brain by Cypress Hill. Life Sly and the Family Stone.

Sly & The Family Stone electrified a generation with an explosive set at the Woodstock Music & Arts Festival on August 17, 1969. Five decades later, this infectiously energetic performance makes its vinyl debut, offering powerful renditions of classics like Dance To The Music, Everyday People, I Want To Take You Higher and more. Sly & The Family Stone.

It’s the first Stone album to perfectly meld the group’s R&B and soul roots into the democratic funk that became the their trademark and a major influence on every soul music and hip-hop player then and in future generations. From the opening groove of ‘Dynamite! through Larry Graham’s fuzz bass that cuts through M’Lady and Sly’s own surreal growls that permeate I’m An Animal, through Freddy Stone’s funk guitar licks that form the basis for future guitarslingers, Life is an album years beyond its time.
