As the title says just two killer Staple Singers videos. Let’s go disco first. Here they are on Soul Train covering Talking Heads ‘Slippery People’ in fine style. Lets think about this for a minute. That’s a dad, born in 1914, and his daughters playing a killer disco record and the greatest music show of its day. Go pops.
And now lets watch the Country Soul genre get truly nailed. Here we have The Band and The Staple Singers together singing ‘The Weight’ in the Martin Scorsese directed ‘The Last Waltz’. As someone says underneath the video on YouTube ‘When Mavis chimes in….I get goosebumps (everytime)’. Too right.
