Been dreaming a lot of Sly’s music lately….
It just occurred to me the relation of The Beautyful Ones to Smilin’….
As Miles Davis once said something like, take something someone else did, change it a little bit and it becomes yours….
It all started with this….. That heavy drive on all 4 beats….
and The Blues from the 1 chord to the 4….
going from the I to the IV is the same as going V/I
I/IV/V = The Blues
