Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Dion Graham

Biography & Memoir • 8.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

Dion Graham doesn't just embody the spirit of musician Sly Stone's voice--his performance also accentuates the lyrical rhythm of Stone's prose. Sly and the Family Stone's early albums in the 1960s are landmarks of popular music, a feat Stone worked meticulously to craft. His stories place listeners firmly in the spaces he occupied then and give perspective on why he disappeared for so long. Throughout, Graham sustains an authentic cool. His voice subtly slows down, pauses, and cracks as Stone expounds upon his older years. It's a kind of music unto itself. This production includes clips from Stone's early years as a radio DJ and more recently produced music, as well as an opening tribute by Questlove. All contribute to making this listening experience indispensable. S.P.C. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2023]
