This superb collection tells the story of Sly Stone's short-lived Stone Flower label, an imprint the soul/funk legend used to develop his production skills in between recording the legendary Stand! and It's A Riot Going On LPs. In particular, it saw him experimenting with early drum machines (see the sparse, atmospheric funk of Joe Hicks' "Life & Death In G&A (Part 1 &2)") and promoting the career of his younger sister Vanetta Stewart (a couple of 7" singles from the aptly named Little Sister). I'm Just Like You tells the full story of the label, showcasing all ten tracks from Stone Flower's five 7" singles, plus eight previous unheard cuts from the archives. As such, it's an essential document of a long-forgotten period in Sylvester Stewart's glittering career.
