sly & his li’l sis

Splendid news! Mr. Sylvester Stone just gave an exclusive interview to Willem Alkema (who shot the Dance to the musicdocumentary) for UK mag Mojo (not merely an expensive rag for Beatles, Dylan and Stones fans) … Here’s two lovely rarities – the latter from a 1994 v/a comp on the exquisite Ace (UK) label – more on them below. A full Little Sister and other rarities compilation is, of course, long overdue, at least imho. Too bad about those wiped Miles & Womack demos, though. Let’s just blame thàt on Gun the pit bull while we wait for the authorised biography by Arno & Edwin Konings.
