Small Talk is the seventh album by Sly and the Family Stone, released by Epic/CBS Records in 1974. This album was the final LP to feature the original Family Stone, which broke up in January 1975.
Small Talk's singles were "Time for Livin'" and "Loose Booty", an up-tempo funk track which uses the names of Bible characters Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego as a chant. Pictured on the album cover with bandleader Sly Stone in a photograph by Norman Seeff are his then-wife Kathleen Silva and his son Sylvester, Jr.
In addition to its standard stereo release, Small Talk was also released in quadraphonic sound.
Beastie Boys sampled the words Shadrach, Meshach, Abednego on the track "Shadrach" from the album Paul's Boutique. Beastie Boys also covered "Time for Livin" which was released on the album Check Your Head in 1992 along with a live music video.
