Graham Central Station (album). Graham Central Station is the self-titled debut album by former Sly and the Family Stone bass player Larry Graham's new band, "Graham Central Station". In late 1972, Larry Graham quit Sly and the Family Stone because of tension between Larry and group leader Sly Stone. After agreeing to produce a band named Hot Chocolate (not to be confused with British pop band Hot Chocolate), he decided to join the band and renamed them Graham Central Station in 1973.

Graham Central Station’ starts off less than spectacularly, however, with Larry and co. plagiarizing soulman Frederick Knight’s I’ve Been Lonely for So Long for the goofy intro We’ve Been Waiting. But things soon get much better. They take on smooth soul balladeer Al Green’s Ain’t No Fun to Me and completely transform it, turning the obscure Hi Records B-side into a tarantual funk-rock monster.
