Did you have fish and nuts for dinner?
^ let's do it live
^ not live. Most ST acts did not perform live but the dancers were the whole thing.
Back in high school we had an English teacher, Mrs. Grain, a heavy set (OK, fat) black woman who spoke pretty "black" (she'd say things like "now stop that you freshmens" and stuff like that) and all the kids referred to her as Soul Train Grain. It's really pretty terrible, but it's fuckin' funny too. It just instantly popped into my head when I saw this thread title! I remember some kids in my class would throw pennies at the metal venician blinds while she was facing the blackboard and she'd go so fucking ballistic that her hair would get all messed up. She also had giant fat tits and her bra strap would fall off her shoulder and then she'd shove her massive hand in her shirt and pull it back into place like it was no big deal. Good times! I haven't thought about this in ages. Thanks Ruffy! She looked a lot like this
My older cousin made it on to Soul Train as a dancer at the same time we were visiting her family in LA one summer in the mid-70s.
I was pretty young, but I remember everyone crowding around my aunt and uncle's TV set to see, and there she was, dancing in these jeans that had these 2-tone handprints sewn on the back pockets.
BTW, Peaches from Peaches & Herb was sexy as hell back in the day, too.
One day they'll be playing Soul Train in old folks homes the way they show Lawrence Welk now.
Dank song, the best genre.
Funny you should mention old folks homes. When I was in high school in the mid-70s, a bunch of us
went to an old folks home on a Saturday morning as part of a school community outreach program.
I will never forget walking into the joint and seeing a bunch of old people positioned around a
tv, "watching" Soul Train.
Best was watching them try to figure out the name of the band/groups name on the chalk board. All scrambled up letters.
Used to watch American Bandstand and all the dance shows every Saturday growing up.
NY AM radio in the 70's. Just recently added some Stylistics to my digital collection.
Great songs - thanks for posting!!
All the intros in one video.
And can't have this thread without some plugs.
A majority of all the performances were lip-synced to playback, but there were some live gems, this is one:
