Soul Train footage from the 70s

Over the weekend,I was watching my 'Soul Train' videos from the 70s,and I was wondering,why doesn't Don Cornelius release all this footage on DVD? I would be first in line to buy it...lol...


I have ten videos that cover the years 1971-76,which you can buy at this site...

But,I was wondering...does anyone know where I can get other 'Soul Train' videos,that cover the years 1976-80? I'm also looking for any episodes that feature Stevie Wonder on it.He's nowhere to be found in any of the ten videos that I already have sad

yeah...I know...but having them on DVD would be the highlight of my life!!! It's been such a long as time since I've seen any of those perfomances. VH1 did a special a few years ago but I didnt have my tape in the VCR!!!

One of my first memories from T.V. was seeing Ike and Tina doing "Proud Mary" and Marvin Gaye doing "Let's get it on!"

Damn...I'm old!! disbelief lol

we have the same ones definitely! i have the one with Sly.
and yeah SOul train began as a local AMERICAN BANdstand
type show back in 1970 (maybe even earlier?) i know cuz i
knew a few people who danced on that show from high school
back then! it wasn't too much different except the LA one
was more glamorous///ie the chi-town kids were very MIDWEST.
they dressed normal!!! you remember how the LA crww dressed>
shabadoo,fred barry,pat davis,fawn...joe chisum...mr. X...the oriental girl with ALL the hair...damata jo freeman...
all of those peeps were strictly LA all the way.

the chi-town kids looked like typical teens from DA hood!

check it out-DOn didn't always MC the chicago show...
anybody from chicago recall CLINT GHENT?

(i know REDZRYDER knows what i'm sayin'!)

don't get me wrong man i dug the early LA shows (1971-73)
but the chicago one was REAL man.

now a question: did NY have a SOUl Train type dance show
back in the 70's?

I was in love with Leonard Allen Jones! Brotha dressed his ass off! I actually wrote to him, and HE ANSWERED BACK! *swoon* (I no longer have the letter, though sad) Man, I would love to see old footage of him again. biggrin

Pat Davis, Vicki Abercrombie, Fawn Quinones were fashionistas! I remember the trend of wearing fake butterflies in their hair. You KNOW I had to get me some of those! biggrin

These 10 videos are great,but they mainly focus on just the performers.Many of the line dances are excluded from most of these videos,and that's one of the best things about 'Soul Train'...lol...did you ever see the 1972 episode where they're line-dancing to The Four Tops' "Hey Man/We Got To Get You A Woman"? That's CLASSIC!
