 Sly and the Family Stone: Hot Fun in the Summertime

Summers almost gone, so to start off September here's a nice slab of summer shimmering funk from Sly and the Family Stone, classic. Hot Fun in the Summertime is a 1969 hit single recorded by Sly & the Family Stone. The single was released in the wake of the band's high-profile performance at Woodstock, which greatly expanded their fanbase. 

It reached #2 on the U.S. pop chart. Thematically, the track was intended to be included on the in-progress album with Everybody Is a Star but the LP was never completed, and three tracks including this were instead included on the band's 1970 Greatest Hits LP, released between Stand! and There's a Riot Going On.

The track was covered by The Beach Boys on their commercially and critically disastrous 1992 album Summer in Paradise. And it was also covered in 1995 by The Manhattan Transfer featuring vocals by Chaka Khan.
