I have nothing profound to say about this video, no startling insight. I just love the fucking thing.

The Bar-Kays doing an awesomely funky version of ‘Son Of Shaft’ at the Wattstax festival in 1972. The original performance was 10 minutes long but cut to 4 minutes for the Wattstax documentary from which this clip was taken. Boo.

Vocalist Larry Dodson’s entrance is epic. “I am Spartacus.”
