Storyline

Since 1971, "Soul Train" has been the "American Bandstand" of the African-American community. Even today, "Soul Train" continues to be the showcase of urban artists and their chart-topping singles. The program also continues to be the place for beautiful dancers and their dance moves, though the dance and the dancers' attire are a bit more risque due to the changing times.

A Syndication Classic Goes Downhill After Cornelius Leaves
8 February 2010 | by hfan77See all my reviews

Soul Train was a long running syndication show that featured the top names in R & B and later rap music as well as the top hits for the Soul Train Dancers to dance to. Don Cornelius. the show's creator, host and packager was the key to the show's success. He was cool, calm and classy and was very knowledgeable about the genre and it showed in his interviews with the guests. There were also two best known features on Soul Train, The Scramble Board and the Soul Train Line, which gave the dancers an opportunity to showcase their talent. Also worth mentioning is the show's announcer, Sid McCoy, who also had some small roles in TV shows.

Unfortunately, the show went downhill after Cornelius decided to step down as host, turning things over to a weekly guest host before Mystro Clark, Shemar Moore and Dorian Gregory became permanent hosts. They weren't as good as Cornelius but there were plenty of talented guest stars and dancers. I'll close by quoting Cornelius' traditional closing "We wish you love, peace, and soul."
