Une plongée dans les seventies : soul-funk-jazz, blaxploitation et peigne afro.
Alors qu’Isaac hayes prépare la prochaine émission de Shaft, Roy Ayers chante sous le soleil, Al Green pousse la chansonnette, Marvin Gaye et Barry White se chauffent la voix, Grover Washington Jr nettoie son saxophone, Bob James accorde son clavier, et Fred Williamson répète son rôle. The Meters arrivent (encore déguisés) du carnaval de la Nouvelle-Orléans, et voient George Clinton passer en soucoupe volante, hésitant encore entre Parliament et Funkadelic, ne comprenant pas que Bobby Womack traîne encore dans la 110ème rue et que les 24 Carat Black ne sortent jamais de leur ghetto. Pourtant, War prône la paix, mais Gil Scott-Heron affirme que la révolution ne sera pas télévisée ; Pam Grier et Angela Davis, avec leur plus belle coupe afro, se remémorent la lutte pour les droits civiques avec Eddie Kendricks qui chuchote « My people…Hold on ».
Pendant ce temps, James Brown, Fred Wesley et les JB’s enflamment le studio ; Curtis Mayfield fait les derniers réglages, Quincy Jones supervise le tout et Melvin Van Peebles ajuste les cameras ; la belle Gladys Knight leur susurre soudain à l’oreille : « Everybody’s talking about the good ol’days, right ? Well, let’s talk about the good ol’dirty days ! »
Leur point commun : tous se demandent à quelle sauce ils vont être samplés…
