Rufus featuring (Super-Sexy!) Chaka Khan:
'Tell Me Something Good' -1974



I do recall feeding quarters into the jukebox everyday to hear this song at the arcade that summer of '74, couldn't get enough of it... nor her. After ten Grammy Awards, I guess I wasn't the only one who saw something there-

Written by Stevie Wonder for Chicago's Rufus feat. Chaka Khan, 'Tell Me Something Good' went all the way to #3 on the US Billboard Hot 100, and was one of the very first tunes to utilize the 'talk box' Peter Frampton made so famous soon afterward.

Photos don't really do this woman justice, just check-out the stage presence at this 1974 show in Central Park...
