It was through his production work done in his early '20's that Sly realized the concept of mixing soul with heavy rock that became The Family Stone.
Sly discovered Gloria (a Texan transplanted to the San Francisco bay area), through Gloria's aunt who was also working with Sly at the time. Recognizing her POWERHOUSE voice, Sly gave her this sassy, exciting and flat our rocking gospel-inflected r&b track for her debut release. While most of Sly's productions were released on the small (albeit successful) San Francisco label Autumn Records, this one got licensed to Warner Brothers who saw its hit potential that, sadly, never came. Shortly afterwords, Gloria spent a year as a backing singer in the Ike & Tina Revue.
Gloria went on to work with another giant, Barry White, was involved in her 1973 LP What Am I Gonna Do; one of the most collectable soul LP's of the '70's.
