Sock it To Me, Young Lover

The 5 Stairsteps and Cubie were an also-ran entry in the sixties/seventies family musical group sweepstakes. Not sure what role two-and-a-half year old Cubie played in the band besides adorableness, apparently that was not enough to get them a big hit record. 

It's a shame they never really caught on, I think Papa Stairstep (below) could have given Jackson 5 Papa Joe a run for his oddball patriarch money.  Images and bio information about the band found here.

Never really caught on...? One of the most famous soul songs of all time!

Huh, they did the original? The Soul Train video online sounded like a bad cover version. OK, one hit wonders.
