This is quintessential Sly, the music is psychedelic deluxe, this riff was lifted by Joe Walsh for his Rocky Mountain Way and Steve Miller stole it too. This is before music was split up into soul, hard rock and all the other categories that now define and separate us human listeners. This is a long song on purpose and was designed to be listened to on pot. It crescendos incredibly, you will trip! Hipsters knew about it while the hoi poloi listened to Sly's hits-everyday people and such. True historical piece from a most important time of mind expansion and compassion, this piece broke new ground and helped shatter the leave it to beaver world that preceded the late sixties.
