Sly 's

family affair ranks

mediocre;

audience

By TOM KIPPERT
The audience at last night's Sly
and the Family Stone concert ex-
pected a lot of excitement at Hill
Aud. But they seemed to force
their enthusiasm when Sly just
didn't deliver.
Sly and his bespangled en-
tourage sauntered onto the stage
following a tiring long wait.
Though the lapse was unimpor-
tant, Sly released a very low-
key and arty product. His inten-
tion seemed right, but the fin-
ished sound came off as trite
and beleaguered.
It had looked as though Sly
would make up for his late ar-
rival as he burned the stage with
his gold-sparkled suit and wide
brimmed white hat (his usual
costume). His band, too, looked
quite enmeshed in a fashion com-
petition, which provided the act
with a certain brightness through-
out the performance.
Cynthia Robinson on trumpet
and Jerry Martini on alto sax
came through with momentary
drive in Sly favorites such as
"M'Lady" and "Thank You
Falletinme be Micelf Agin' "
(somewhat similar to the pub-
lished LP title).
Sly himself was just dandy on

vocals. His additional banter and
unneeded extended solos wrecked
the spirit which he was, for a
moment, beginning to excite.
Audience reaction was at first
very understandable. The crowd
cried for the charismatic Sly at
many points during the lapse of
time between the first band (The
Masterpiece band) and The Fam-
ily Stone.

group, Little Sister) and floated
in the newly hazed atmosphere
of the auditorium.
His songs became drawn out
and sluggish, as the endings all
reeked of diminished rhythm
chords and lightened drum riffs.
In general, Sly and the Family
Stone's musical quality has dim-
inished in the past few years.
The infrequent LPs remain in-

numb
of Sly's booming set. That might
have even come off if Sly had
arranged "Dance To The Music,"
"I Wanna Take You Higher"
and the rollicking "Music Lover"
in a different manner.
"Dance To The Music" made
a most stirring case in point,
with everyone but the brass sec-
tion looking astounded that they
could play a basic rock instru-
ment. The guitar solo in that
song ,albeit a short one, didn't
strike the vibrancy as past live
versions have done
Sly is no Magic Dick on the
amplifie-d mouth harp, as he cer-
tainlv showed in the group's
"H1igher Music Lover" sequence.
The problem with Sly does not
really lie in talent. The potential
that once marked rock's prize
asset is still yearning to be set
loose. If Sly would look to the
lyrics in his song, "Everyday
People," his future might just
be as rosy as his past.

However, Sly fans forced ap-
plause at what they felt should
have been the high points of the
performance. But the audience
buzzed with an undertone of in-
difference.
The middle 20 minutes of the
Family Stone's set posed a real
riddle. Sly acted smugly as he
teased the women onstage (the

troverted and arty, and the live
performances sound pretentious.
Sly admirers who came to Hill
Aud. expected a great deal of
flashiness and got it. Yes, de-
spite the colorful clothes, the
potential flash in the music just
never hit the eardrums.

ably predict the last three songs
