JOE HICKS - HOME SWEET HOME part 2
It's no surprise when hearing this track that Sly & The Family Stone are the backing group! All of the signs of their greatness are in the grooves- funky as hell, tight as a well tuned snare drum and rhythmically popping in a way that drove all of the great Sly hits into immortality.
As for Joe Hicks himself? I'm afraid to say I don't really know much about him; he puts on a great performance in this record, though. He cut an LP a few years later for Stax offshoot Enterprise records.
Also notice how 'We Got To Live Together" on the Hendrix Band Of Gypsies record cops the hook from this song, released just a few months before the Gypsies recording on new year's eve 1969.
