Mother's Finest....if you went to Clemson in the 70's-80's

it's not a question of IF you saw them, it was how many times.

Frat parties, Y-Beach, National Guard Armory, local bars, and countless other places around campus and in the area. Seems like once a month they played somewhere local. I can't begin to count how many times I saw them.

Never been a band like them before or after. Too funky for rock radio, too R&R for R&B radio.

Wasn't aware an entire concert from that era existed. About an hour all total.

in 75. That was the same night we upset Maryland in College Park in basketball when Greg Coles made the behind the back shot that fell. Watched the game on big screen while funking out.

I'm not sure how many times I've actually seen them, but they had a nice little run as an opener at shows in The Palladium at Carowinds for a brief time.
