Would you like extra stink with that?

Watch what happens when a ringer (e.g. Sly And The Family Stone) enters a talent contest (e.g. the 1968 Ohio State Fair.) Basically, they win. I've worked production at things like this dozens of times, but I've never seen a Sly-quality band win. Usually, it's a 12-year-old that has memorized "Moonlight Sonata."

on a side note:

"that's some groovy bread!"

I really think it was the dance moves that pushed them over the top.

BTW ? 10 large IS groovy bread!

All we need is a drummer, for people who only need a beat...

That's it! I'm giving up music now.

Nothing I could ever do could be one percent as great as that.

Q: How do you stop the spread of AIDS?

A: Give it a recording contract from TVT.

Yeah, way off topic, but I'm drunk now.

You could probably buy a Cadillac with $10,000 of "groovy bread" back then.

i'm digging the silverface twin reverb and bassman-head.

not digging the fact that they didn't mic the Rhodes' awesome suitcase speakers. probably sounded great in the crowd, but we can't hear it
:-(

now, who's got the vid of the band that used that LESLIE!!??
:-D
