Formats and Editions


''A Whole New Thing'' is the debut album of funk/soul band Sly & the Family Stone, released in 1967 on Epic/CBS Records. The album was released to mixed criticism and failed to make an impact from a commercial standpoint and did not chart. CBS Records executive Clive Davis prevailed upon band leader Sly Stone to create a more commercial album; the result was the album ''Dance to the Music''. Unlike later Sly and the Family Stone albums, ''A Whole New Thing'' was recorded live in the studio instead of being overdubbed and featured less of a pop feel than later releases such as ''Dance to the Music'' and ''Stand!''. The lead vocals are shared between Sly Stone, Freddie Stone, and Larry Graham; Rose Stone would not join the band until they began work on ''Dance to the Music.'' - Wikipedia
