Thank You (Falettinme Be Mice Elf Agin)

I haven't been slacking off on this blog, just doing a lot of work behind the scenes. As promised, here is the next installment of what I hope to be an unending stream of mixtapes on a theme. This time it's in honor of Sly Stone (whose 30+ year reunion concert in New York I'm missing tonight) and an assortment of spin-offs, rip-offs, side projects, covers, and a few new songs too:

One quick note:
Little Sister was one of Sly Stone's little sisters and two other singers that he drafted straight out of High School to sing backup in his newly formed group. The trio recorded a few singles between the releases Stand! and There's a Riot Goin' On on Sly Stone's own imprint Stone Flower. One of their singles, the cover of Sly's of "Somebody's Watching You," was the first major record to have a rhythm track created with a drum machine!
