Goodreads Review of The Hippest Trip in America

The Hippest Trip in America: Soul Train and the Evolution of Culture & StyleThe Hippest Trip in America: Soul Train and the Evolution of Culture & Style by Nelson George

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I watched the show as a kid and loved it. The book takes you behind the scenes, and you find out more about the dynamics between the musicians and the dancers. One of the dancers inspired the Commodores “Brick House.” Quite a few of the dancers went on to become well known singers and/or dancers. The show was a great community for the musicians and dancers.

The book is an extension of VH1’s documentary “The HIppest Trip in America.” Don was so cool and it is great to learn more about him.
