All that hair! I love it.

And I knew Don COrnelius cd talk faster than he was talking Sunday night.

Wow, I wish I was born just a few years earlier to partake in this! I fondly remember my big brother gettin' down and was sooooo jealous as a little girl!

Hell yeah, Dave. They could do a dvd set featuring the Soul Train lines and I'd buy that shit.

^ Yep.

Michael Fisher said...

Yeah, we were thinner then. And had hair! Afro-Sheen, y'all!

Geneva Girl said...

OMG! That brought a smile to my face. I remember trying to imitate them at parties - with all-girl Soul Train lines. And those polyester clothes!

they should bring this back. i bet a new dance show would be hilarious. same concept with people performing too as long as it's like danceable music.

Word, DeAngelo Starnes! :thumbsup:

I was such a ST geek, fo' real! The album art to my soul music songs is a still photo of the Soul Train line.

I used to know a lot of their names. I had such a crush one of the dancers. I wrote him a letter c/o "Right On!" magazine and he wrote back. If you're reading this, I still love you Leonard Allen Jones. :-)

And I became friends with Tyrone "The Bone" Proctor (he's the dude whippin' his neck at 1:50. His partner's name was Sharon Hill). We met when we worked on the same street in the Village (NYC) many years ago.

I liked the ST line much better when couples danced together, as opposed to later on when they had separate lines for the ladies and guys.

I love these memories. Thanks for posting, UBM.

What I love is knowing these young'uns are probably grandparents now, and so the funk line stretches on!

The joy looks a lot more carefreee back then, too.
