Subjunctive Soul

Gladys Knight and the Pips with “If I Were Your Woman” on the Ed Sullivan Show, 7 February 1971.

This is what television was like before Pop Idol and Dancing with the Stars. Real stars, live, making mistakes but being brilliant. The band drops out at 1:00 and then her mike does too when it kicks in again at 1:22 until 2:00, but even so, it’s great stuff. I’ve no idea why they’re all dressed like Robin Hood.

They're not Robin Hood, silly, they're leprechauns.

Of course. It would have been St Patrick's day.
