“Elements”, with Earth, Wind & Fire and Linda Hopkins & the Soul Quintet.
I remember watching this concert on Soul that year. And I would like to have a copy of this video so I can view it on my MP3/MP4 Player. Flash Video or AVI format will do if it can be possible? You have my email address here.
Fantastic early footage of EWF, I love the rawness of their performance.
I remember EW&F on SOUL!
Was this their second appearance?
I seem to remember it differently
It was just EW&F and they did more songs from the album “Last Days and Time”
Which came out in 1972.
You should put these shows on the air again
I’m lovin’ it :^)
OMG fabulous music my soul sours thank u
Unbelievable….I remember EWF’s appearance well. Certainly one of the hallmark performances of a show that was rich with so many. We’ve yet to see anything close to the quality and diverse art/political/cultural offerings that Soul! gave us weekly. I’d love to see the show with Stevie Wonder and Wonder Love, as well as the show that featured Al Green. Thanks ten zillion for posting and in advance for the inclusion of some of the show’s other episodes.
The programs that stay in my mind include Billy Preston, as well as Al Green. Thank you so much for reviving such superb programming! Ellis Haizlip created a masterful series that deserves to be restored fully.

Wow that’s James Mtume in the other group.
OUTSTANDING! This was an unexpected pleasure to find. These performances are a musical treasure for sure. PBS has something here, With a proper push by PBS this classic presentation will be very well received. There is nothing in the market that comes close to this. Programing such as this has a strong market. Well done and thank you Thirteen.
