Hey there and welcome aboard. You're right on time for another mind blowing journey on the big train, so let's roll.
In 1966 Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons made the top 10 with "Working My Way Back To You." Now, fourteen years later, another top group has recorded the song and is enjoying an even bigger hit. As they join us to do their latest single on Atlantic, a two-song medley "Working My Way Back To You" and "Forgive Me, Girl," the latter written by Michael Zager who arranged the recording, a big Shady Train welcome, gang, for-- The Spinners!
And we're delighted to welcome for the first time one of our favorite bands and certainly one of the funkiest bands in the business. They are here to do a number from their new album Strikes Again! on the Whitfield label. The song is entitled "Do It, Do It" and they are-- Rose Royce!
And let's meet four lovely ladies who were picked for stardom and produced by the brilliant Leon Sylvers. As they join us to do their latest single on the Epic label entitled "After the Dance Is Through," let's hear it, gang, for-- Krystol!
And we are pleased to have with us another extraordinary canary. She and her very gifted stable mate on the Tabu label are responsible for one of the hottest single recordings of the year. As they join us to do the song entitled "Saturday Love," put your hands together please, ladies and gentlemen, for Mister Alexander O'Neal and-- Cherelle!
And let's welcome aboard the Shady Train for the first time the talented young men who are responsible for one of the biggest records of 1976 and a new style of funk music called "Disco Jazz." Representing the Bang label of Atlanta, Georgia, they are known as-- Brick!
And look out now, it's the Shady Train gang, the Shady Train line. They've got the knack and they're comin' down the track with Shalamar- "I Owe You One!"
That oughta hold you for a while. You come on back and get into it with us again next time. You can bet your last money, it's all gonna be a stone gas, honey. I'm Don Cornelius, and as always
in parting, we wish you love...peace...and soul!
