1983 Larry Graham – Victory

Victory is the fourth solo album by Larry Graham, released in 1983 on Warner Bros.

Larry Graham Jr. (born August 14, 1946) is an American bass guitar player and singer, both with the psychedelic soul/funk band Sly and the Family Stone, and as the founder and frontman of Graham Central Station. He is credited with the invention of the slapping technique, which radically expanded the tonal palette of the bass, although he himself refers to the technique as “thumpin’ and pluckin’ ”
