Whew. This barely made it through editorial in time. But like a lover’s voice across the mountainside, it stayed alive. Sit back, relax, and enjoy this flashback performance from Top of the Pops (in 1983 according to the YouTubes).
This is such a great video. This live performance by Wilson Pickett (a.k.a. The Wicked Pickett) is chock full of people having a great time. I’m not sure when it was recorded. I hope you’ll get out on Funky Broadway tonight. Lord have mercy, indeed.
This week’s Flashback Friday (FF#3) features a video double shot from The Raspberries.
The Raspberries hail from Cleveland, Ohio and saw success in the early 1970s. In this video, The Raspberries perform “Go All The Way” and “I Wanna Be With You” (“I Wanna Be With You” starts at 3:17 in the video). The Raspberries broke up in 1975, but re-formed in 2004.
