Don Cornelius Gets In Line

Apologies if you have seen this before, but I’m over the moon about it. As far as I know, Don Cornelius remained agnostic to the Soul Train Line during all of its years except for this one instance, when he was cajoled by the Supremes’ Mary Wilson into joining her for a stroll. The audience went wild, of course, as Cornelius and Wilson sauntered down the aisle to the J.B.’s “Doing It To Death.” Befitting the man, Cornelius’ moves are refined, relaxed, and cool. It’s nice to reminisce about this idyllic time before we realized that Don Cornelius was a jerk. Sigh. [Dailymotion]
