Full Show Friday: Sly & The Family Stone, Harlem, 1969

We search the murky back waters of youtube to find full concerts and post them to the site weekly, come back every seven days to help us celebrate Full Show Friday's. These shows are of varying quality and may not be here for long so enjoy them while you can...As always, please support the artist every which way, but especially by seeing them live (if they are still playing)...This week... Sly & The Family Stone!
This is week is amazing. It feels like this was home video, or an unreleased recording/movie of Sly & The Family Stone live at the Harlem Cultural Festival, Mount Morris Park, Harlem, NY June 29th, 1969, only a few months before the band played their faces off at Woodstock. Really fantastic to dig into this funky offering to start this Friday series for March.

The recording isn't perfect, but this one feels a bit more like a bit of history rescued and the performance is kick ass. Enjoy:
