Sly & The Family Stone - Fresh (1973)



Sly and the Family Stone Fresh
Sly and The Family Stone - Fresh
(LP/CD) Epic, 1973-06

Sortez vos platform boots! Fresh porte superbement bien son nom: après le sombre et plaintif There's a riot going on, Sly change encore de direction musicale et effectue un retour à 180° vers un FONK ultra-syncopé encore inégalé à ce jour (sur cette planète). L'optimisme est de rigueur sur tout l'album qui brille de chaque note et de chaque rythme. In time, If you want me to stay ou Babies makin' babies feront danser toute l'assemblée, quelle qu'elle soit (interdit aux moins de douze ans). Malheureusement, cet album sera le dernier réellement frais ('fresh') de la discographie de Sly Stone, après celui-là, vous pouvez arrêter, ce sera de moins en moins bien. Mais celui-là, vous ne pouvez le rater: il est régulièrement réédité, et ainsi, vous pourez vous aussi cracher à la face des abrutis qui se procurent le dernier Ophélie ou David Winter: 'Tu veux un disque de VRAI funk?', et leur coller une grande claque dans les oreilles.
Note last fresh funk before dawn : 5/5 (originaly published in the mid-90s on djouls.com)
