Live Music In German Television

Me and my parents got an agreement that I could watch every first Saturday Beat Club in German Television. Although I was a young kid these days I remember the performance of Curtis Mayfield back in 1972. I remember that because it was one of first times that someone gave an interview and his words were translated in German language. That was the first time I heard any words about the problems coloured people have in the US. Listening now to this music make me smile in a sentimental way and make me happy to see a great artist again.

Lucky you! I was allowed to watch 'Bonanza' and then it was off to bed for me!

The Swede hat gesagt…

This is tremendous. I was lucky enough to see Curtis live in the early 1980's, an unforgettable night. The great Henry Gibson was still on percussion.
