    Awesome clip and I bet the entire show was filmed too. I wonder who has a copy of it? And is that Berry Robinson in the chair on stage towards the end of the video?

    In his book, Smokey wrote that he filmed his last day with the Miracles, from the dressing room to the concert itself. Brief clips were shown on his MOTOWN ON SHOWTIME special in the late 80s.

    And yes, that is Berry Robinson on the chair. I guess they needed someone to watch him while mom and dad were on stage.

    There was a 2 Lp vinyl release of that show which included some roasting of Smokey
    by Bobby Rogers and a " say Hello" moment to Billy Griffin, Smoke's replacement. Also
    his tribute to his former partners, the song Sweet Harmony. For the life of me I don't
    know why it wasn't re-issued...

    The 2 lp live set was released on cd (along with their 1968 live album) by Motown Select a while back.
