Mice Elf Agin

Awesome photo by Warren P. Harris

Funk archaeology: three contrasting versions
that take a Sly Stone classic ever further, mining deep strata of bitterness & isolation.

The original was never as guileless as it sounds at first. But Sly's spacier, slower, angrier retake & Magazine's ironic, haughty appropriation explore its genius more fully.

Sly & The Family Stone: Thank You (Falettinme Be Mice Elf Agin) (from Greatest Hits)

Sly & The Family Stone: Thank You For Talkin' To Me Africa (from There's a Riot Goin' On)

Magazine: Thank You (Falettinme Be Mice Elf Agin) (from The Correct Use of Soap)
