The First Family of Soul! – Step By Step By Step

The Five Stairsteps, The 5 Stairsteps & Cubie, The Stairsteps, The Invisible Mans Band and Keni Burke are the First Family of Soul.

This special show is in three parts: SEGMENT ONE – is the early Curtis Mayfield years; SEGMENT TWO – are the years in-between 1970 and 1971 when the group recorded two albums by producer Stan Vincent. This resulted in their signature song “OOh Child”; SEGMENT THREE – contains productions by Clarence Burke Jr. and Keni Burke. This also includes music from the Invisible Mans Band and solo work from Keni Burke.
