Prof. David Keller, Kinesiology, was invited by the Library to choose an item to add to the Library's collection, purchased with the support of the Friends of the UT Arlington Library on the occasion of her Promotion to Associate Professor with Tenure.
Prof. Keller chose There's a Riot Goin'On (music CD) by Sly and the Family Stone, New York, NY: Sony Music Entertainment, 2007.
Prof. Keller's remarks on this item:
"Personally, this is one of my favorite albums and I consider it ONE OF the greatest accomplishments in contemporary, popular music. While this album isn't this artist's most commercially successful work, it is, in my opinion, his greatest musical achievement. Despite using a much more formulaic approach to their earlier work, which led to much more commercial success, the inspiration and creative decisions behind this particular album resulted in a substantially more impactful work of art. I am honored to be here tonight and I am honored to add to the UT Arlington Library collection in this way."
