from Nuggets Of The Golden Age Of Gospel (1945-1958). Sylvester Stewart, aka Sly Stone, was born into a religious family - his parents provided a platform through which he dug into rock’s gospel roots and transformed the r&b tradition forever with a harder, and somehow all at once sweeter, brand of soul music. The Stewart family aligned themselves as the The Stewart Four, a band of toddlers and tikes (some as young as 2) that managed to produce a remarkably sophisticated bundle of gospel recordings.
“Walking In Jesus Name” finds a 9-year-old Sly hitting all the notes and leading the band in a formidable display of early control and poise with that raspy smoke-soaked vox burning through bluesy church numbers.
