Rock and funk icon has Sly Stone has released I’m Back: Family and Friends. Remakes include Jeff Beck’s contribution to “(I Want to Take You) Higher” ; Bootsy Collins’ bass contributions to “Hot Fun”; and the Doors’ Ray Manzarek on “Dance to the Music.” Other than those appearance, Stone played all of the instruments himself.

“Plain Jane,” is a previously unheard Stone composition, is a nasty funk. “His Eye is on the Sparrow,” is a traditional hymn, and “Get Away,” reminds of “Family Affair”
