If you haven’t yet, please set your Betamax to tape The Best of Soul Train, which airs every Sunday morning at 1 a.m. on channel 11.
This weekend’s highlight, which I rewound and watched three times, was Yellow Magic Orchestra(!), playing “Tighten Up” sometime around 1980 for a seriously into-it crowd, and a post-set interview with a more-awkward-than-usual Don Cornelius.
Sadly, this gem hasn’t yet made it onto YouTube and I don’t have the kung fu to make that happen, so just use your imagination or try to catch it the next time around.
