Re: Sly & the Family Stone vs. War!

I have to call 'No Joy'. Choose between two of my most favorite (adversely challenged) bands from the late 60s/early 70s. And imagen a setup coming from some one (Foxhound) who doesn't care that much for bands with horns. Both bands made their 'bones' with horns. As much as I like War, I must choose Sly and the Family Stone. They may be my most favorite band of all time (at least up to 'There's a Riot Goin' On').





I'm not the biggest hip-hop fan but this next one (Sing A Simple Song) is one of the 'MOST' sampled songs of all time. It's been sampled for hip-hop use over 400 times.



War

I set up all my polls fairly and squarely though!

Re: Sly & the Family Stone vs. War!

A week ago I would have said that I'd opt for War in this matchup. Now that I've taken the trouble to fairly sample the music off both bands, my vote still goes to War on the strength of their biggest hits.

I love "Why Can't We Be Friends", but Sly has two of my favorite albums of all time
