    Starting with episode 76, the show's theme was changed from King Curtis' "Hot Potatoes" to "TSOP (The Sound of Philadelphia)", written by Gamble and Huff and performed by MFSB and the Three Degrees. The new theme was accompianied by the show's memorable animated opening sequence.

    1st song, "Sex Machine '75" James Brown Performance: Mandrill "Wind On Horseback"

    "Give The People What They Want" The O'Jays 2nd song, Dancers: "Dynomite" Bazuka

    Karl Grigsby does his Comedy Routine

    Interview with Elton John plus performance "Philadelphia Freedom"

    Performance: Mandrill "Peck Yer Neck" plus an interview

    Soul Train Line: Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes "Bad Luck"

    Performance: Elton John "Bennie And The Jets" which he sung live this was a great performance to see Don took chances on letting white performers/ acts come on his show which was a real treat to see. AVERAGE WHITE BAND also sung live on soul train before as they played a 3 song set on the show. With this exposure the white acts got more recognition from another audience they never dreamed they would have. This also expanded Dons braveness and competition all across the board by having white acts that were soulful and hip and still contempory and still relevant to the soul/ R n B charts. But don't get it twisted the white artist were already famous at the time they tapped shows on soul train da mita jo freeman and Jermaine Stewart were visibly seen throught this episode Jermaine was a world wide super star as a singer in the 80's while;e da mita jo went on to play in the Private Benjamin showmoreless
