I saw The Spinners at the Nebraska State Fair in
Man, the 1970s were a great time for tunes. I have said it a million times, but I'll say it again: "Soul Train" was the greatest television show ever produced by man.
I remember watching The Spinners sing "Rubberband Man" around the same time they were on Midnight. Special. I wish my parents had listened to this type of music. I remember that my dad owned eight-track cassettes of the "best of" the Beatles, Beach Boys, and Jim Croce. The only album I remember my mom playing was Elvis Presley's Christmas album. So very boring.
I love that Raphael Saadiq is producing old-school, classic soul music. I saw him in Berlin last Spring and it was such a killer show. He's a great singer and his back-up is super tight, Plus, he's so dreamy! Continuing with The Spinners theme...
