Also no reason he shouldn't play a disjointed and disappointing set at BB King's as he did in 2007. A set I still refer back to in a mix of amazement and desperation.
On August 16th, 2011, Sly releases his first new album in 30 years on Industrial/Rock label Cleopatra. So after failing to hook up time after time after time, including a legendary meltdown with Prince, Sly is really back? Well, sort of. This is a "celebration" with newly recorded tracks and various guests singing along with the Family. Also, there are three new tracks including a reworking of the traditional "His Eye On The Sparrow", and that alone is reason for celebration. The album is called I'm Back: Family And Friends. Brian Perara, President of Cleopatra Records is quoted thus: "It was an honor and a pleasure to work with a legend.""
The list of guest stars are a touch stale. Vanilla Fudge and Rod Stewart? It might kill but it might not. Bootsy Collins is a down grade from Larry Graham on "Hot Fun In The Summertime" but not by much. I can't wait to hear the Jeff Beck collaboration… I'd prefer that to siccing Kanye West onto it. But I would prefer both.
