decades of fun

Rare TV Funk

TV appearances by funk artists are often stunted affairs of micro-sized forced funk, easily mocked and pulled away from for commercial break. I had never seen this Sly performance from 1983 playing with Letterman’s Paul Shaffer band. The tempo a bit fast in these 80’s renditions but Sly is in good spirit and voice so it’s all good.

He didn’t do that many appearances after this era.
