awesome. from the clock, it looks like they were there for at least 3 hours. I'd love to see the rest of the footage.

'my father used to take me to go see him'. ouch!

Awesome.
The Sesame Street clip reminds me of when Stevie Wonder was on The Cosby Show... The family went down to the studio where Stevie was recording and I remember he sampled their voices and was playing around with them.

Thanks for posting these. Very cool.

Haha. That performance looks like it belongs in one of those parades Disney World does down Mainstreet just before closing.

Awesome!

What is that thing Dolby was using? It looked like an old answering machine and I couldn't tell what kind of noise was coming out of it. Just seemed like more show than anything. ?

So, that was supposedly old technology, but the pen-to-screen interface that they were using is only now beginning to catch on to the mainstream, and still not even, really... I'd be awesome to have that, don't you think? Why don't we, fer feck's sake, if it was workable in the 70's on a monochrome monitor running DOS, or something similar? Why was that tasty technological tidbit shelved?

Herbie's playing is awesome, too... Just didling around, and it's masterful... Boy... Makes me feel like a tow truck...

I spy a Moog Source in the background, which puts this at least post-'81 or '82. :D

Its a Roland TB-303 or TR-606 that he pretending to use as a sampler. Pretty funny.

I remember the year this was on. I used to have it on videotape. It was the Grammys, I think, or maybe the AMAs. I was just telling someone about this recently.

yeah, I think stevie's voice is the only thing really being performed. the tb303-as-sampler is really embarrassing to watch.

Hard to believe that was roughly a quarter-century ago.
