    Wanna celebrate a soulful legend's birthday? You can, since Legacy Recordings is honoring the music of the first hit-making interracial, mixed-gender band, Sly & the Family Stone as March's Artist of the Month! This is an exciting year for the iconic band. March 15 marks Sly Stone's 70th birthday and a deluxe retrospective multi-disc box set is in production for release later this year on Epic/Legacy.

    A visionary musician, composer and bandleader whose work transformed the 1960s and '70s in ways that are still influencing generations of musicians in America and around the world, Sly Stone brought the funk into the mainstream by pushing aside every preconceived boundary of pop music. Follow Legacy's Artist of the Month for a fresh perspective on the band's catalog and place in pop music history.
