Some Great Dancing In The States, 1972 Style - Video Clip

This is a great clip from the 1972 Wattstax concert, included because of the brilliant audience participation and the dancing, not particularly for Rufus' "Funky Chicken"! Please have a look - it seems to me that once they get onto that field it's like they've forgotten that anything else matters!

I have the dvd of this and when we were in China my wife showed it to her history of fashion class, it inspired two of them to design a clothing line based on the fashions of that time for their degree.

I got a couple of cool shirts out of it too.

Jobs a good un.

Highlights of the movie for me is the Staple singers, Issac Hayes, and Richard Pryiors hilairious commentry.

Superb Pete...as with all your clips...well done mate!

Reminds me of the time we went to see wattstax at a little theatre in Memphis...it was the first time the whole thing was ever shown in a theatre....supposedly a big event....a Saturday night......and we were the only ones there!
