Description by

Different Strokes by Different Folks is the long awaited re-imagining of the music of Sly & the Family Stone, uniting a team of fiery all-star innovators in a revolutionary reversal that turns the notion of "sampling" on its head. Created under aegis of the reclusive Sly Stone, who approved every aspect of these recordings, each song on this album breathes new life into a Sly & the Family Stone classic, and each in a very distinctive style. Alone or in one-of-a-kind collaborations, young stars join the ranks of veteran performers in a compelling hybrid of sounds and rhythms.

It's totally conceivable that without Sly Stone and his innovations there would be no funk, hip-hop, or club music as we know it. The artists on this compilation give a nod to that notion by paying tribute to the great Sly with a variety of covers, remixes, and reinventions of tunes by the Family Stone. The hip-hop nation weighs in with performances by the Roots, Chuck D., Big Boi, Cee-Lo, and others, while R&B veterans (D'Angelo, Isaac Hayes, Janet Jackson), electronica figures (Moby), and pop- rockers (Stephen Tyler, John Mayer) join the fray too, making for a fun, varied homage to one of pop music's most pivotal artists.
