What happened to the other classic episode from ST during the 70s and 80s,that weren’t shown on either the DVD, ST YouTube channel or B.E.T. Eccentric network ? Madd Vision promised the people that they had obtained the rights to ST,but all we were left seeing are episodes that we saw dozens of times over and over. What’s the deal ? I was hoping to see more classic and rare footage on the DVD, but most of these performances I’ve seen before.
What’s really going on ? I’ve notice that you have a few episodes on the website,that are not on either the YouTube channel or on Eccentric ?
Can we have a “honest answer” please ? Thank you
How can I get copies of the following videos/cd’s?:
( 1.) junior walker and the allstars performing ” hip city live ” on soul train.

I know that you guys offer the best of Soul Train but that really cuts out artist that were big in the 70s and 80s that have fallen through the cracks now.Will there ever be a complete box set of Soul Train? I mean , I really don’t understand why you guys can’t DVD author Soul Train into seasons like 1, 2, 3, 4,5, 6, and so on . just like other shows so young filmmakers and retro lovers like me (24) can enjoy EVERY episode of something that is apart of history.I wanna see every episode, intact with the Johnson ads and commericials. I think a cool marketing idea would be to also include other vintage commercials like for food, cars and other products from that year include commentary and never before seen footage like the J5 home movie from Hayvenhurst.Those are just some of my ideas from the perspective of a black female filmmaker, b/c did you notice how after MJ passed everyone was looking for those Soul Train episodes and J5 cartoons?

I need to find an episode for my boyfriend. He was featured as a dancer on Soul Train in the late 90’s. But I can’t seem to find a phone number and all the emails available on this website come right back to me.
I was featured on Soul Train as a main stage dancer for 3-4 yrs in the years of 2003-06/07’… will I be able to purchase the footage of these tapings? how and where??
We want to see DAVID RUFFIN JR on Soul Train! Contact us at DavidRuffinJr.net
The 2011 Soul Train Awards is on and it’s not over yet! But this is real entertainment! Singers (without rap which to me has played out) of new and old with real live musicians (and not taped) is the way to go. At 51 years of age this refreshing and I thank you for putting on a fantastic show.
yes- do soul train have any touring dance groups? Can I get a list?

I’m a Major Fan of Soul Train Been Watchin It For Many Years and Have a Big Wish That One Day Soul Train Could Do a Special Episode Entitled Soul Train: Special Edition Where Just Have all The Former Soul Train Dancers From the 70’s 80’s and 90’s and Have Guest From The Past Come and Perform That Would So Flattering To Watch!!!!
I am interested in obtaining a copy of Soul Train Awards 2009 on DVD.
Im not sure which date the soul train awards are scheduled to air on television. I was hoping that you could advertise that more. A few people asked me, but Im not sure.. the internet says the 18th or the 27th…please clairfy and advertise!!!
I’m writing like the others to get footage from the soul train show. My mom was featured in a mixed race band in the 70s and I am desperately trying to get a copy of this for her 65th birthday. Any progress on making a complete soul train season by season collection?
I just want to understand something. Soul Train, just honored Gladys Knight with the Legend Award filmed for the Soul Train Awards on BET. The problem that I’m having is that Gladys did not become a legend alone. The Pips were a part of her accomplishments and over the past decade, she is honored over and over again without the Pips. The slap in the face is that the Pips were in the audience and she knew this and did not even acknowledge them. My family and I are upset because for several years, my father, William Guest, has had to live with being invisible and it is not fair. He worked just as hard, if not harder, than Gladys over the years and deserves to be recognized for his part of her becoming a “Legend.” Now, she is my family and I love her, but I love my father too and he missed a great part of mine and my siblings life because he was a part of this group that started off with my aunt, Eleanor Guest, my father, William Guest, my cousin, Brenda Knight, and Bubba and Gladys. She will always recognize her brother and rightfully so, but I think it is so unfair that my father and the memory of my uncle Edward Patten, appears to be forgotten in the history of The Legend of Gladys Knight and the Pips.
I would like to say im sorry … but you should be sorry for the lack of effort put in this year soultrain awards this year …. out all the proformer this year there was only two that sound good … Robin thicke and the one he had done for Earth, Wind & Fire… and i think you could have done more for Havey D … then bring a few rapper on sage … with a few mins of he hits … and Earth, Wind & fire … should have walk out the place after hearing this people … jack there songs up …. you could see it in there faces …. the only good song was with Eric Benet , Joe and Rodin Thicke … was very good … but the rest of it you could have left out …
Does anyone know the name of the drummer in the house band? been looking everywhere, but couldn’t find his/her name- Did a great job!!
Re: The 2011 Soul Train Music Awards Gladys Knight Tribute
Two words about Tamar Braxon during the Gladys Knight Tribute:
Please tell me if Soul Train Hippest Trip in America (VH1 Rock Doc) aired Feb. 2010, is available on DVD?
If so, who has it on DVD?
Thank You Very Much,
Please make available to watch, episodes in which the group Immature was performing. I have looked EVERYWHERE for performances by them. I have only managed to find one, which I’ve already seen many times. But please make those performances available. Starting from 1994- 1997. Please again, and Thank You,
Soul Train is such a major part of our culture, thank God we had it as a showcase for our music, but I would like to say that so many artists have been overlooked and should be awarded too. I am waiting for the day when the legendary Whispers will be honored. By far they have endured and remained consistently exceptional in all of their musical endeavors. For a group with such a loyal fan base and equally loyal followers, every year they are overlooked. After all , they even sang the theme and you have to admit they were and still remain a class act.
In addition thought should be given to all the groups who touched us through the years like The Dells, ChiLites, and Stylistics, just to name a few. Many of these men and women too are still touring, packing houses and moving us with song. I love Gladys and all the other superstars who are honored, again and again but we need to share the love and appreciation. Just a thought…just a thought.
I wanted to inquire of two Soul Train episodes from Seasons 7 and 11. I bought the TimeLife Ultimate Soul Train collection and although I was satisfied of the DVD’s contents, I was really looking forward to seeing perhaps Season 7 or Season 11 on the DVD but it was not included. Also, currently on TV there is only one television station which shows Soul Train’s past episodes. Unfortunately, the re-runs are shown over and over again of whats previoulsy been shown, while Soul Train has an extensive archive. I really hope that more Soul Trains past episodes are re-aired as opposed of showing two seasons out of the many seasons Soul Train had. Is there an outlet to of seeing this come to pass? On YouTube there are many companies that have their own channels. I think that Soul Train should have their very own channel on YouTube so that Soul Train’s episodes can be viewed by its many fans. Of course it would be great if Soul Train could upload ALL of their episodes from ALL of their seasons on the air… Is there a way a request can be made?
Tributes should be soulful and they should make you want to watch over and over again . I truly watched Soul Train Music Awards 2010 over and over I am a huge Anita Baker and Ron Isley fan and the performances were on key!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This year was not so great. For 2012 , I am recommending that you honor Stephanie Mills , and the Gap Band or New Edition ,or Charlie Wilson,Dianna Ross,Keith Sweat ,Baby Face or the Manhattans, or Stevie Wonder or Prince. Just some of the legends …. Choose performers will truly do justice to songs from the soul.

im after a copy of jackie wilsin singing higher and higher on soul train 1971 anyone help please thanks yours dave please email me thank you ……
I am so sorry for the loss of Don Cornelius. He was one pioneer. Love Peace and Souullll. I will never forget those words.
Want to know how to go about getting interviewed?
PLEASE BRING SOUL TRAIN BACK PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Hi. I am a former dancer of James JT Taylor. Our performance was aired in season 21 episode 2 with C&C Music Factory. Is there any way that I would be able to get a copy of the performance? That was my personal connection to the history maker, the late great Don Cornelius.
There was a rare appereance of jackie Wilson in 1970 on Soultrain. In that same video is me. Leonard Exson. I was a highschool football player that had been invited to the Solu Train at that time. Can you help me/Where can I find this historic clip. Peaceeeeeeeeeee
On behalf of myself, Annette Seise and Christi Cuttitto, we will sorely miss Don Cornelius and are very sorrowful about his suicide. We extend our condolences to his family. They are in our thoughts and prayers.
I love the Soul Train DVDs featuring great performances. I would love to see a ‘Best of Soul Train Line’.
In March 2012 I and my new production company hosted a successful tribute to the late icon Don Cornelius in SC. Noting the desire of Mr. Kinard Gibbs, CEO of Soul Train Holdings to ‘…explore ways to grow the brand…’ Please contact longtime friend of the late Don Cornelius and producer Darryl Porter for his professional opinion. You now have access to a new and proven concept to ‘the growth of the Soul Train brand’ ~ Why try re-inventing the wheel?
I resently discovered in my collection of music memorbillia sheet music- the lyrics and chords for Soul Train written by Stuart Margolin & Murry McLoed 1965 now I am looking for a collector that would be interested in it or a writer for a music magazine to write an artical on the piece.
And then these two to follow.
I just saw a classic episode which featured the Dazz Band. Also in that episode, a little boy who had leukemia had a wish to be on Soul Train and he was on that episode. I wanted to know if anyone knew what happened to child whether he beat the disease or not.
This is in reference to the comment that Monique Guest posted about her father, William Guest (former pip). Gladys Knight does NOT owe her dad William Guest anything!!! The best thing that ever happened to Gladys was to go solo and have her brother Bubba work along side of her. Soul Train was NOT honoring Gladys Knight and the Pips. They were honoring Gladys Knight. The Guest family sound like some very disfunctional people if they think that William Guest deserves to be recognized in Gladys becoming a legend. Stay out of other people’s business! Soul Train has no reason to recognize William Guest. He never did make anything of himself after being PIP. The word is that he is broke! Anyway, stop blaming Gladys for William Guest not being recognized. Sound like jealously to me. THe only person that deserves recognition if her brother Bubba. He never left GLadys side as an artist and he continues to support her career.
I agree with Ms Wright
how about honoring STEPHANIES MILLS.
One Of the Greatest
Will individual tickets to the 2012 Soul Train awards be sold???
The 2013 presidential inauguration will with out a doubt be like no other when the one and only folk song entitled All The Way will be performed by C.P Johnson. The song All The Way is a political folk song strictly about president Barack Obama and is currently on YouTube and available on iTunes and CD Baby. Just search C.P Johnson All The Way and follow C.P Johnson on twitter at C.P Johnson@TheSeventhPart.
This is the BEST Soul Train Music Awards I have ever watched!!! (All of them were excellent.) One day I will be able to be there live. Awesome, Awesome, Awesome!!! Great job Soul Train!!!
I am very disgusted with Jamie Foxx’s calling Obama “our lord and savior” on your awards show!!! He should be banned from all further Soul Train events, and shows!! Until then, I will not be watching or participating in any Soul Train shows, or events!!!! A public apology is in order and so is a retractment of his comment!
I will never watch any Soul Train programs and I will boycott all your sponsors as well as notify them. Jamie Foxx calling Obama our Lord and Savior was revolting, blasphemous and the fact that the crowd cheered him on is equally revolting.
Soul Train must be okay with what Jamie Foxx said about “Our Lord and God.” Soul Train is complicit with contributing to such divisiness and lack of
One of the main reasons our country is in the shape it is in now is due to the influence of such liberal, ignorant blacks like Jamie Foxx. Blacks are still enslaved because they have been kept uneducated and dependent on the Federal government handouts. “Reverend” Jeremiah Wright was correct when he said that America’s chickens have come home to roost. The white community, and the country, is paying a high price for slavery: the degeneration of our culture. I wish we could ship people like Foxx, Wright, Jackson,Sharpton, and the rest to Africa. That’s where they belong.
Jamie Foxx’s comments about Obama were blasphemy. How can you promote this? How far the blacks have fallen from faith in Jesus Christ. This is shameful & I think a public
apology is in order. Chistians should boycott you until this happens
lets start a campaign to get george clinton and parliment funkadelic a soul train lifetime award, why come none of the so called black shows give them any respect? Hes like 72 years old its time for bet,soul train to wake up and give george his lifetime music award. Only people they award are these safe artist.
Hello, everyone my name is Marquise. I go to Decatur Classical School in Chicago. I’m making a documentary for a project at school. I would like to interview a former soul train for it. If anyone can contact one, please e-mail me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
I just saw the best documentary ever on VH1 called, VH1 Rock Docs presents Soul Train: The Hippest Trip in America. I grew up in the 70s and I want to give this excellent documentary as gifts to at least 6 friends/relatives. I cannot find it for sale anywhere. Any help you can give me on how/where to purchase it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
And you go back to where you come from, because you don’t belong here either. Before whites stole this country from Native Americans, you all were from England, and other places around there, so go where you belong.
I want to know who yells “THE SOOOOOUL TRAIN”. Does anyone know? Couldn’t find out on the ‘net.
Check out this Aussie venue biting your name AND logo!

This is a really cool site SoulTrain has. i enjoyed and still enjoying reading on the history of this icon show. I know Whitney Houston has appeared on the show a few times. Below I did a painting of the icon singer http://fineartamerica.com/featured/whiteny-houston-roger-james.html
It would be a great thing to see a tribute to Bobby Martin at this year’s awards. The man has done alot for R&B as well as Soul Train
How do I get a copy of an old Soul Train performance?
I would like The Jackson;s to win please
First and foremost I don’t know who is on the broad of director’s of soul train but how and hell does Kieth sweat get a lifetime achievement award over group’s of the the 70’s like the commodores , the barkay’s, lakeside and parliment funkadelic especially the commodores who’s the only group to have number one hit’s in rb , pop, country , gospel , they sold more albums for Motown than any other group besides boy’s to men . In an my opinion they are the best damn group of all time yes I said it even better then earth wind & fire their music can’t touch the commodores give these brother’s their life time achievement award very soon ……..
Soul train has sold out!!! Not hatin’ against T.I. and the other crew, but how do you vote Robin Thicke as best anything when he has #1)- stolen Marvin Gaye’s song, #2)- Sued M.G.’s family to prevent them from suing him because of #1 above, #3)- Trying sooooo hard to be “soulful” when he has done # 1 and # 2 above…. Money get’s almost anyone these days.. bet Don Corneleous is rolling over in his grave with this B.S.!!! Damn shame
HONOR MILLIE JACKSON HONOR MILLIE JACKSON HONOR MILLIE JACKSON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The Soul Train Awards need to recognize TRUE MUSICIANS like The Jackson 5, The Temptations, The Whispers, The Ohio Players, Kool & The Gang, The Chi-Lites, The Isley Brothers, The Commodores, The Bar Kays, James Brown, Anita Baker, Billy Griffin & The Miracles, The Stylistics, Al Green, Earth, Wind & Fire, The Three Degrees, Gladys Knight and the Pips, Evelyn Champagne King, Bobby Womick, Chaka Khan, Qunicy Jones and so many other black musicians who have paved a way for music today that have gone unrecognized. Their music brought inspiration to our souls after the death of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. The music was all about love and soul, it inspired us of what unity and love can bring forth in our race. I am so sick and tired of seeing these new musicians like Tyrese or Keith Sweat win a Soul Train Award. WE NEED TO RECOGNIZE THESE LEGENDS BEFORE THEY DIE AND IT IS TO LATE TO RECOGNIZE THEM! These young musicians have already taken over the BET Awards, NAACP Awards so, please let the true icons have their moment. Without these individuals it wouldn’t be a Soul Train Award!! Their music will ALWAYS be loved and remembered.
I find it hard to believe that an award show that is tasked with rewarding the hard work and documenting the achievements of African American artists could be remiss in even acknowledging my father’s passing. My father was one of the most prolific singer/ songwriters in history yet his name was allowed to fade into obscurity after his death. For those who are unaware of who my father was, he could be considered the step-father of the blues. In the 80’s when blues was dying out as a musical genre, he penned the songs that would reinvigorate the genre such as, “Down Home Blues”, “Cheatin In The Next Room”, “Annie Mae’s Café”, and hundreds of others. He also Wrote “One Bad Apple” for the Osmonds and “Old Time Rock and Roll” for Bob Seger and numerous other pop hits. To allow him to pass on without even acknowledging his accomplishments while passing out awards to Keith Sweat and Robin Thicke shows that the Soul Train brand has no soul left in it.
I can’t find a complete season 1 anywhere. Ive been looking for season 1 episode 29 for a couple years now. How can i get it?
Congratulations, Mr. Johnson, on licensing the “Soul Train” brand to Matthew Weaver (“Rock of Ages”) to probe creating a Broadway musical! I only wish I’d thought of if FIRST! :-P Keep it in the family. :-P
I’d have LOVED to produce it! #yaslowyablow! <3
My name is Brenda Grismore, I was on soul train in either 1973-74-75? I would have been 10,11,or 12. I jumped on the elevator with all the dancers to be on the show. in the Chicago Board of trade! everyone was looking for me (Dad) and I was seen by his secretary on the TV in the office building, he was a commodity Broker then. I am looking for that episode! I was drinking a bottle of Pepsi and a Man apart of the staff bought it for me and sat me on the Piano to watch the show! then my Dad found me! HA! :) hope you could help me be a Great commercial for soul train and Pepsi cola! I live in Kansas..
I want to know why The Supremes have never been awarded AN HONOREE AWARD. Notice I did not say Diana Ross, I said The Supremes which include 8 beautiful black women – FLORENCE BALLARD, MARY WILSON, DIANA ROSS, CINDY BIRDSONG, JEAN TERRELL, LYNDA LAWRENCE, SCHERRIE PAYNE & SUSAYE GREENE.
the first 40 minutes of the soul train awards 2014 boring disappointing get Anthony Anderson back please don’t let Wendy Williams host the show again she’s great in other areas but not for the Soul Train Awards
Who’s beat was that playing during the best R&B/Soul male artists on the awards last night??
Keeping the sweet memories of Soul Train alive on Saturdays on collectorskornernow.com (choose video option) at 11:00 am EST.
I was in the Soul Train National Dance Contest sometime between 1975 and 1977. I have trying to find a way to buy the episode. Is there any way?
I’m glad you guys out out some DVDs from the historic Soul Train library. However, I’d like to see more of not just the 70’s artists, but also shows from the 80’s and 90’s up to the time Don stepped down as host. Just like soul, dance, and jazz was important in the 70’s, rap and hip hop came into the forefront in the 80’s by the end of that decade going into the 90’s after it mixed in with R&B, the New Jack Swing era came into the fold. I’m hoping the future DVDs will cover the shows from the other eras, since there was vintage music on Soul Train after the 70’s ended. That, and the future generations need to know about the countless artists during the decades because that was great music as well.
How and where do I go to audition to be a Soul Train Dancer for the new Soul Train?
So I have been waiting to see when DVD’s blueray or what ever would come out that had entire Soul train episodes. So far I have only been able to find best of DVD’s and would really like to see entire episodes. Are there any planes to release these types of DVD’s?
You need to have a Soul Train that you can set up at n Amusemenmt park
with the contests and dance llines as well as live perfomances. You could also use tribute people recreating the original musicians and people could choose to buy a DVD of it…
The body of work that The Bar-kays have put together over several decades should be acknowledged by awarding them with the lifetime achievement award. They are certainly deserving moreso than some of the past recipients.
