I've got a few things I want to put up on the blog, but I haven't got the time (or energy) to get them written up right now. So, here... have a little Sly & The Family Stone from an ABC TV show in 1969.
Two things: 1. I'm kind of amazed that ABC aired this in 1969. Or ever. (You'll know what I'm talking about near the middle of the clip.) And 2. As a kid, I grew up hearing all sorts of great trumpeters, but Cynthia Robinson is the one who made me think playing trumpet would be the coolest thing in the world.
BTW, you may note that the guitars are actually plugged in!
