Curtis Mayfield - "Keep on Keeping On" (1972)

I've been looking for this clip for years. Banana Tom, my old friend Marcus and I saw it on TV at Marcus's flat in Paignton when I'd just got back from Brittany, having split up with Inge (May 2000), and I drew real strength from it. The album version was always a bit disappointing after that (with the somewhat slick horn arrangements, etc.)...I prefer the simplicity and sincerity of this.

Apparently this was originally broadcast on the Old Grey Whistle Test.
