Sly and the Family Stone – Thank You (Live on the Midnight Special in 1974)

This is a bigger version of Sly and The Family Stone than the original band. They’ve got an extra horn – three in all – and 3 back up singers at this point. Nonetheless, this version of “Thank You (Falettinme Be Mice Elf Agin)” never sounds too busy. In fact, it’s a pretty laid back version of the song. There’s a giant SLY backdrop behind the band, and Sly himself is playing guitar on this one – a rare treat.
