Soul Train was way better than I remember

I recently watched a VH1 documentary on Soul train and it blew my mind. Not that I didn’t think Soul Train had had some great moments but all my memories of it were from the 80’s and 90’s when it was kinda just a slightly better version of “The grind” with your boy Eric Nies.
Holy shit was I wrong.
Apparently, in the 70’s, it was the best fucking show ever. I’m not even a huge fan of live performances in general but some of the clips they showed were phenomenal. Not only did they have amazing artists on there but they ACTUALLY sang, as opposed t the lip synching that was the standard when I watched that show in the 80’s and 90’s. So, in an attempt to do my part is spreading the love, I gathered a bunch of these clips, as well as converted them to mp3’s for your downloading pleasure.
Peep it
Here’s Al green singing his ass off with his arm in a sling after breaking it earlier that week:

James brown losing his shit with the JB’s

Aretha live is some serious shit.

This is just motherfuckers dancing but damn, how dope is that? If they replaced all those shitty dancing shows on TV with stuff like this, the world would be vastly improved.

Stevie Wonder doing “Superstition”

This one has no video but it’s Stevie Wonder improvising a song live about Soul Train. I seriously have listened to this song like 50 times in the past week.

And here’s one that wouldn’t embed but it’s amazing. Sly and the family stone doing “If you want me to stay”

Here’s a zip of all the live performances in mp3 form:

I kinda burnt myself out on Stevie Wonder a while back. I bumped his shit so much from the mid 90’s till the early 2000’s that I reached a point that whenever i heard one of his songs I would switch the song off immediately. Well, thankfully, I feel I might be coming out of that. It’s been a while but I think I’m ready to reacquaint myself with Mr. Wonder. The thing is, there are large parts of his catalogue that i still am so sick of, it’s not even worth revisiting. So, to those songs, I say “thanks for the good times, but you’re dead to me.”
Luckily for me (and you), He’s made so much great music, I can ignore all those “superstition” , “sir duke” and “livin’ for the city” type songs and just focus on all his awesome album tracks that may have slid under the radar.
So, here’s a mix of my favorite Stevie Wonder album tracks.
It’s a win/win cause you either know these songs, love them but very likely haven’t listened to them in a long time cause you’re burnt out like i was.
You only know his popular songs and are about to get you wig pushed back by his awesome non-hits.
You hate Stevie Wonder and you’re a fucking idiot. Stop reading this blog and go fuck yourself.
