I'm floored. I feel like I can almost reach out touch Sol while he's singing.

Wow, super cool! I've seen vintage ads for gospel performances by this duo, so it's great to actually get to see them! I wonder where this was filmed...it may well have been just a few blocks from where I am now.

This video was most likely shot at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium in Pasadena, California, where Phil Kerr hosted well known musicians and vocalist for his Monday Night Gospel Concerts. Many famous artists have appeared.

Mike, thanks so much for sharing this. It was a real priviledge seeing this footage of Sol. Smile

Does anyone know the approximate year this was filmed?

Looks like a Dickerson Guitar and Amp/case unit, and a Rowe industries tuning changer on the guitar tailpiece ?
