Hip Trip


How’s about a little late night soul to put you in the mood for Valentine’s Day? Tune in to VH1 at 12:30 a.m. Feb. 13th for Soul Train: The Hippest Trip in America. This hourlong look at Don Cornelius’ groundbreaking music show explains how the cardboard sets and cramped quarters of Chicago-based Soul Train exploded into wide open psychedelic overdrive when it moved to L.A. In 1971. The doc shows us where those outrageous Soul Train dancers came from, the origins of the Soul Train Scramble Board and the Soul Train Line and treats us to an hour of Al Green, Stevie Wonder and Tina Turner at their Hollywood funkadelic best.
