Rolling Stone: “Everyday People” was released as a single shortly before it appeared on Sly and the Family Stone’s fourth LP, Stand!, which explored everything from hot funk to cool pop.

Sly and the Family Stone : Back in 1967, when the interracial, mixed-gender combo burst onto the scene with their debut album, the burgeoning rock & roll subculture was, as always, hungry for fresh kicks and different sounds. But no one was quite prepared for the magical, multi-faceted musical mix Sly and company served up.

Soul Seduction : After her time exploring the music traditions of Brazil and her success with the album ”Meu Brasil” Miriam Aïda has been spotted in several national TV shows. Miriam´s extensive talent travels through a number of musical landscapes and since her debut 2002 with Jan Lundgren Trio and Fredrik Kronkvist she has released 5 albums.

The History of Rock : The next Chiffons single. “Lucky Me” was as much a flop as “He’s So Fine” was a hit. In order to not lose momentum, the Tokens immediately produced a third single “One Fine Day.” “One Fine Day” proved to have the same simple appeal as “He’s So Fine,” and the Carole King-Gerry Goffin composition rocketed up the charts to #5 Pop in June and #6 R&B.
