seventies soul

Liza Minnelli, Truman Capote and Steve Rubell at Studio 54, circa 1970s

Oh how groovy! Soul train was the American bandstand of Soul. Hosted by Don Cornelius, there were many performances by people like Chaka Kahn. And you certainly can’t leave out the dancing! I watched an old dance off from Soul Train, no wonder dancing is a workout…there were lunges and turns, back leg lifts, arm exercises, jumps and a few things I haven’t figured out how to explain. Go look it up, see for yourself.
