1971's There's A Riot Going On is a landmark dark soul album with layered drums, electric piano and forbodding bass sounds. The vocals, mostly by sly, are full of despair and emotion, as are much of the lyrics. This reissue comes with four bonus tracks including one mono single version and three previously unreleased instrumental tracks; with new liner notes by the San Francisco chronicle's Joel Selvin.
