Not only did this classic launch the career of Sly Stone and his group, but created a whole new classification of dance music. By combining traditional Soul/R&B with sprinkled psychedelic rock influences with harder hitting rhythms, a whole new genre was born. Many acts would follow from this template including The Temptations, Diana Ross & The Supremes, Stevie Wonder and The Four Tops.
