Unreleased material for Sly And The Family Stone retrospective box set

Sly And The Family Stone are to be the subject of a multi-disc retrospective box set later this year, announces Legacy Recordings, the back-catalogue division of Sony. Sly Stone - who turns 70 on March 15 month - has been chosen by Legacy as their 'Artist Of The Month'. The program was started earlier this year by Legacy and has so far been used to honor artists on significant birthdays. Janis Joplin received the honor in January when she would have turned 70 and Nina Simone received it in February when she would have turned 80.

No release date or track listing has been announced for the box set, which will be titled Higher, although nearly a quarter of the contents will be previously unissued material.

Stone’s last album, I’m Back! Family & Friends, was released in 2011.
