The songs

Slippery Slope plays classic R&B hits originally recorded by artists like Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, Aretha Franklin, Sam & Dave, Wilson Pickett, Martha and the Vandellas, and more. Our repertoire is based on the classic crossover R&B material of the 60's and early 70's produced at Motown, Stax and a handful of others. We also explore the later evolution of the genre into disco and funk, and cover a few pop and blues numbers that owe a debt to the R&B greats.

If you're a fan of the original versions of these songs then you'll love the authentic feel and classic sound that Slippery Slope brings to great tunes like ...
