  1. Free Electric Band by Albert Hammond from 73. Lyrics sound almost corny now but still a great tune.
  2. Why has this well-deserving thread not moved back to the top?.............................
  3. Chaka Khan did one of the classic unheralded albums of the 70s for me with Rufuzised [74] with her band at the time.
  4. Thanx for that, jnedley. I didn't know much about Betty before this. She was a Fierce Mama indeed.
  5. Blimey! So many songs! I only know Hello Mary Lou and It's late.
  6. Apparently Jim Kerr hated this song and refused to record it at first but was talked round.
  7. The "Sexual Healing" video reminds me of a Benny Hill sketch which is a terrible comedown for the man who gave us the Let's get it on album.
  8. A song that I recall with some affection, a good fun tune. It was only recently that I've heard of the pressure the group came under to take the word "white" out of the lyric from their record company. They refused, of course, and I am so glad they stuck to their guns. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xrNTMOUtjfE
  9. Ooh, I'm so envious. It seems to be a sad fact of life that no so many recorded performances exist from Stevie's heydey although there are plenty of him dueting with the world and his wife when he was long past his truly productive phase. So it goes with all greats, I suppose, witness Sinatra, similarly dueting with anybody and everybody in his declining years when video had become a much more accessible medium. The Living for the City one still puzzles me tho. I watched it in 74 so it must still exist in the BBC vaults, somewhere.
  10. Here's another one: Visions from the Innervisions album, although I first discovered it on the b-side of Living for the City [which I still havn't been able to find!!]
  11. I'm hardly a bastion of the anti-drugs movement, Dude. I like a smoke, I drink, and even indulge in Cocaine on special occasionans, but Marvin was a sad sight on the "Healing" video, for me, he looked like he was washed out and it's a shame when you see some of the videos posted on here from the early 70s. It may sound corny but I think when drugs become an intregal part of your day - as apparently they did for Marvin in his final years - you lose your "soul".
  12. I'd love to see this as long as Marvin isn't in the state that he was when he made the "Sexual healing" video when he looked like what he was by that stage: a long term drug user.
  13. I must admit that I don't understand this because I always thought that jointly composed songs had their profits paid out evenly and separately to each composer. I know there has been problems with intra-band agreements whereby composers have also allocated themselves an extra share of all the band's earnings so maybe the disagreement is more along those lines.
  14. and this one: Superstition I tried to find the video of Stevie's classic 74 performance of Living for the city on UK's TOTP but it eludes me. Still it was a magical era as Stevie grew into his 20's and began to open his experimental wings...with unforgettable results.
