Sly & The Family Stone, "Stand" on the Mike Douglas Show

Posted by Dick Mac

Mike Douglas never got his due in his lifetime. With his flower-power set and his guests that included rock stars and leftists, he brought to the mainstream a glimpse into the true dynamism of post-War and Vietnam-era America.

In this clip, Douglas treats a still rather conservative America to a tall, long-haired black man, exposing his torso while singing funk with an inter-racial band on lunchtime television.

Fantastic! LOVE the outfit Sly has on - black & white sparkly lycro with the plunging neckline and crescent moon & star pattern. Girlfri-end!
