Stevie Wonder on Sesame Street, Fashion Leader of the 70s :)

Yes I know, not a guitar player, but there ARE guitars in the video of "Superstition". Plus this is just too cool not to share:



Isn't this a great jam? I wonder if Sesame Street has anything this cool now.

I'm not sure of the exact year, but I think it was 1972 or 1973. Cool threads, huh? It looks like the part of Stevie Wonder is being played by Eddie Murphy. :)

What strikes me most about this little time capsule is that it was obviously made before the phrase "Supersize Me!" was invented or put into use. I'm just AMAZED at how skinny all da boyz in da hood are. Times have sure changed, eh?

Well, well, well,.........obviously not a YouTube junkie, but an archivist!!

Nice clip. Really good.

What I like about it is that it is real and in the now of the time.

We seem to have lost that. If "it" can't be had without much effort we don't need "it".

Good find.

That's a great video.
So, Ma, do you recognize the bass player?
Just for a hint, I'll tell you that the kid playing the red Gibson is a
young Ray Parker Jr. (Ghostbusters), and I believe the guy playing
the Tele is Buzz Feiten.
Extra credit if you can name the other half of the rhythm section
(drummer), and double extra credit if you can name either or both
of the horn players.
Peace,
Alan

Yep...
Bonus points if you can name who Stevie originally wrote the song
for.

The kid in red, thrashing out on tha balcony was great.
I watched it but couldn't hear it bc my flash player 9 doesn't play any sound. Anyone know a fix for that would be helpful.

Thanx Ma
