The O'Jays Live - Stairway to Heaven (1976)
This is just gold. The performance of this song is laced with the subtle gospel influence all the way down to Eddie's "walk with me, talk with me" which many Black preachers would say toward the end of a rousing sermon. What's funny is the people were hollering at the end like they were in church. Only Black folk. Unfortunately, the mean ole people at Warner Chappelle had this video taken down. It was great piece of musical Black American history. Why can't record companies ax hideous rap music of today. Nope, they will leave that trifling stuff up.
