Throwback: Slave-Watching You


Stone Jam is the fifth album from Dayton funk band Slave and it went Gold with the help of the song “Watching You.” The ever-changing lineup began to reach new levels of success with the emergence of Steve Arrington’s vocals on “Just A Touch Of Love” from the previous album. In the beginning Slave was known for being a group of hardcore funk savants because of the virtuosic contributions of musicians like Mark Hicks on songs like “You and Me.” “Slide” represented the sweatier version of Slave that had less vocal sophistication and a wilder approach. Steve Arrington’s voice lead the band into a classier funk style that was no less compelling than their initial sound. Slave’s creative peak ended with 1981’s “Snapshot” even though they continued to record albums into the ’90’s. Arrington left the group in 1982 and had success with his Hall of Fame project Dancin’ In The Key Of Life in 1985. Members Mark Hick and Mark Leslie Adams Sr. passed in 2011. Steve Arrington and Dam Funk released Higher on Stones Throw in 2013.
