On the occasion of Sly Stone’s 70th birthday on March 15th, his life and the music of Sly & the Family Stone will be commemorated as the Artist of the Month for March 2013, by Legacy Recordings, a division of SONY MUSIC ENTERTAINMENT. Legacy’s celebration of Sly & the Family Stone will continue throughout the year.
The Artist of the Month program was launched by Legacy this year, with a commemoration of Janis Joplin in January, on the occasion of the 70th anniversary of her birth on January 19, 1943; and a commemoration of Nina Simone in February, on the occasion of the 80th anniversary of her birth on February 21, 1933.
In every case, the Artist of the Month program provides fresh perspectives on musical legends whose sounds continue to affect people’s lives. The program enables new fans and deep aficionados the opportunity to focus on an essential figure in pop music history, whose principal catalog is a cornerstone of the Sony Music archives.
Skope is giving away a CD prize pack with: Stand!, Fresh, Small Talk, A Whole New Thing, Dance To The Music, There’s A Riot Goin’ On.
