Throughout Stand!, Sly Stewart is backed by his band The Family Stone. Who not only back the front man up, but occasionally take lead. Each musicians shows great skill and talent technically and in terms of writing, but not one of them compares well to the second star of the show, Larry Graham. Larry Graham, also known as the inventor of "slap" bass playing, works his way through each song effortlessly, but still manages to amaze many, as well as myself. The intro has an inspirational concept that only has positive effects on the album. Along with a rather satisfying meaning, the track houses a variety of tempos and quite an appealing melody. Which Stewart shows to have a talent for writing throughout the album. This Funk/Soul is a wonderful intro. A controversial number is next up; "Don't Call me , Whitey" would be that track.
Yes, the jams ("Don't Call Me Nigger, Whitey," "Sex Machine") wind up meandering ever so slightly, but they're surrounded by utter brilliance, from the rousing call to arms of "Stand!" to the unification anthem "Everyday People" to the unstoppable "I Want to Take You Higher.
