I didn't either until about three years ago.
My wife and I were heading down to Edisto for Vacation, and we went by
the Cracker Barrel before we left Columbia to eat breakfast. There was
a couple of older ladies at the cash register asking the lady at the counter for directions
to Myrtle Beach. I gave her the directions and she said her and her sister
were heading down there for some big concert where a lot of oldies bands
were playing. She said Mother's Finest was going to headline the show that
night. I told her how much I loved them, but didn't know they were still
around. She said they (her and her sister) were from Tennessee, and
had seen them several times doing these beach shows in NC and Virginia.
Said this was the first time she'd been to Myrtle Beach.

I looked them up on YouTube to see what they looked and sounded like
recently. .... It may be just me, and I loved remembering what they
used to sound like, and to me ...... They years have not been kind to
them.

:lol:

It's too bad that live version of "thank you" bySsly Stone was taken off YouTube because it was phenomenal

I never saw Sly and the Family Stone Live, but would loved to have gone
to one of their shows in the early 70s.
Stand was my favorite SAFS song. ... The live version I posted above
was OK, but I've seen them on TV doing that song live a lot better.

Also looked for a good Live version of I Want To Take You Higher on
YouTube, but couldn't find a good one.

The one from Woodstock is insanely good, and they did it at 3 in the morning or something!

And if were talking fusion jams, this is an amazing version of this:

The 2004 mothers finest line up was original male and female vocals, original guitar, and original bass. Or at least the classic lineup plus a few mixed parts from the mid 90s lineup. I know they had a kick starter campaign in the summer last year for a new album but I don't know if they got the funding or not.

Early Chicago music was some good Listening. Really good live act too.
Saw them in 1974 and then again in the mid 80s. Cetera had left the
band, and then returned for a short time, but they never got the "magic"
back even when he returned. ... Terry Kath was such an unsung anchor
of that original lineup, that his death pretty much ended Chicago's
"aura".

I saw Mothers Finest about two (maybe three)years ago here in MB. It may be the same show you're referring to Spurt. I know the person who travels with them and does their merch sales. They do a lot of touring in Europe where they still have a pretty strong following.
