Il primo CD è l’album originale rimasterizzato, il secondo contiene materiale inedito di studio: i brani 1,2 e 6 sono prove del 1972, il brano 3 è una outtake strumentale del 1972, i brani 4 e la 5 sono sempre rehearsals, la 7 e la 8 sono due outtakes del 1973 e il 9° brano è una studio jam del 1974. Il terzo e il quarto CD contengono il concerto completo al Winterland Ballroom di San Francisco del 26 settembre del 1973. Il prezzo, come detto in precedenza, dovrebbe essere contenuto, tra i 35 e i 40 euro, indicativamente.

L’altro cofanetto, quello di Sly & The Family Stone Higher, è previsto più avanti, il 27 agosto per la Sony Epic Legacy, ma si preannuncia interessante perché è il primo Box dedicato all’opera di Sylvester Stewart, che a marzo di quest’anno ha compiuto 70 anni. E mi sembra un omaggio doveroso ad uno dei migliori rappresentanti della Black Music e del funky di sempre (e non solo).
