A Man Who Has Nothing In Particular To Recommend Him Discusses All Sorts of Subjects at Random as Though He Knew Everything

I Always Liked Sly Stone’s Understated Fashion Sense

Dear lord that’s some greezy funk for 1974.

In 1974, you could have gone to the big old movie theater with a huge screen and no one texting and seen The Godfather Part II and Chinatown, and then Thunderbolt and Lightfoot at the drive-in. When you got home, Sly and the Family Stone was on Midnight Special.

Other than that, there was nothing to do.

  1. Everybody gets a pass on wardrobe and hair; it was the 70's. Except the sax guy – what the hell? And I loved Thunderbolt and Lightfoot – great pull.

  2. Hi JG- Until Eastwood made Unforgiven and Jeff Bridges was The Dude, Thunderbolt and Lightfoot was far and away their best work.

  3. What kills me is how much space there is in the not-so-loose funk. It's almost quiet sounding.

    Yep the Tenor Indian looks like a reject from a Village People audition.
