Photo by Erich Francois. Larry Graham and Graham Central Station are back! The slap bass pioneer and his crew have just announced that Raise Up, their first studio album since 1999’s GCS2000, will be dropping on September 25th. With guest appearances from Prince and Rafael Saadiq, Raise Up will include three new versions of classic Graham Central Station songs and ten brand new songs. Graham recorded the album last summer in France after picking the best songs from his touring sets.
The Best of Larry Graham and Graham Central Station. My Radio Sure Sounds Good to Me. 1977. 50 millones de canciones.
Exclusively for Prime members. Sample this album Artist (Sample). The program follows the Graham Central Station formula that made for some classic 70's funk albums. The event kicks off with a typical 'Introducing the Band members' opener. The thing is, the CD really doesn't sound dated even though it floats you (well me anyway) right back to the 70's! There are even remakes of several GCS classics and if that were not enough there are three tracks featuring PRINCE! It's official; Graham Central Station (albeit with all new members) is BACK! If you are a fan of GCS, this is a must have.

Larry Graham's first album since 1998's GCS 2000, Raise Up involves an updated version of his Graham Central Station: vocalist Ashling Cole, longtime guitarist and vocalist Wilton Rabb, keyboardist David Council, and drummer Brian Braziel. On three songs, Prince assists on several instruments and background vocals, while Graham's fellow Oakland native Raphael Saadiq performs on the closing "One Da. Everything seems to have been written and recorded for the purpose of live performance - one that has the crowd dancing and singing along as it switches its gaze between.
