So I was doing some wikipedia "research" and just had my mind blown.
Turns out that Sony accidentally released a version on CD that had alternative tracks of a bunch of different songs in 1991.
After a quick visit to Spotify, I realized that I have the alternate version CD! So what I have been listening to all these yeas is NOT the official album released in 1973. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fresh_(...ly_Stone_album
Also, I think Sly is the bassist I really like.
I *thought* it was a Jazz bass but now everything is upside down.
