Soul! LIVE!

Martin V., my boy in Arizona, posted on his Facebook page yesterday this fonky clip of Marva Whitney singing live--and backed by the JBs--on the Mondrian-inspired pop art set of the Mike Douglas Show in 1969.

Dig it. Now dig it again. It's okay.

The Soul Closet is turning over the day to live performances. Check em out:

Otis Redding:

Sam & Dave bringing it--unfortunately before a crowd of astoundingly dispassionate Germans:

Labelle. Live on "Midnight Special."

And we close it out with Sly and the Family Stone live on "Soul Train." Actually live, y'all, not lip synching.
