The internet is the haven of some of the worst people and things you’ll ever see but every so often, something magical happens. One day while looking through YouTube, I found that magic. Al Green. Soul Train. 1972. Polyester. I had to share it with everyone. What makes this performance so sublime is not just the florid surrounding or the army of dancers that surround him and snap in time it’s The Reverend himself, looking sharp in pale blue, giving an emotive, expressive performance of one of his hits. I’m not kidding-sit down, turn up your volume, and get ready to groove.
If you like what you see, it’s what you’ll get during “Soulful Shaq”, Monday mornings at 9 a.m. on the new KZSC spring schedule. The polyester is optional.
