I hope this is good news in that the new owners finally release those classic Soul Train Episodes on DVD and/or air them on television. Soul Train is where I first saw Bloodstone, Eddie Kendrick’s solo performance, Elton John, The Jackson Five, Marvin Gaye and so many others perform during their prime. Those performances are historical gems.
I never understood why Mr. Cornelius would never release these classic shows but I guess he had his reasons.
I am hoping for nothing but good things to come from this transaction. What do you think?
