One of my favourite moments on film is in Wattstax, it s just a glimpse but it's fabulous, the Bar Kays are seen swaggering through the airport, as they arrive from Memphis, in full pimpadelic finery truly only a whisker away from their stage costume in its absurd splendour. Anyone not prepared to show that kind of commitment has no business being in a band IMHO.

Hard to believe we dressed like that back in "the good old days"

Glad you liked the photo. The Bar-Kays are fabulous and I thought they were one of the highlights of Wattstax, which is an amazing film that has lots of terrific moments!

Funny...I just ordered some Bar-Kays and Mar-Keys CDs, after watching the recent Stax documentary Respect Yourself. (Recommended...some great footage on there.)
