Lorsque je consulte la liste de ses prestations sur wikipedia, il est mentionné un apparition en 1973 et 1974 mais rien en 1971 alors que sur youtube traine une vidéo datée de 1971 pendant laquelle il interprète notamment "Super Bad" et "Make It Funky".
Quelqu'un aurait-il des infos précises sur les prestations de James chez Don Cornelius ?

J'irai regarder sur youtube pour vérifier.
C'est ici : DAMITA JOE INTERVIEW
Loyal to none
Avec Joe Tex, c'est EXTRA !!!!! Quelle souplesse naturelle, très 'élastique' la demoiselle.
"Soultrain.com: You have been friends with Michael Jackson and the Jackson family for many years. You were one of the first people, if not the first, to teach Michael Jackson the Moonwalk, or as it was originally called, the Backslide. How did that come about?
Damita: Michael Jackson was a good friend. Years ago, I watched a Marcel Marceau special on PBS and he was doing this mime routine called “Walking Against the Wind” in which imaginary wind would be pushing him and he appeared to be walking forward and backward at the same time. I was taken away by what I saw. So when I choreographed and appeared in Cher’s show at Caesar’s Palace, I did the routine, which would later become a street dance called the Backslide. Michael happened to be in the audience for this show. After the show, he came backstage and asked how I did that dance step. I showed it to him and then I told him I learned the move from watching Marcel Marceau. So after that, Michael began studying and watching Marcel Marceau. Other people taught him the move also. It would become his signature dance step, the Moonwalk, which he first did on the Motown 25 special. Michael always stated that he was not a creator of that dance step."
