The Watt Prophets: USA

Despite their troubles with recording companies, the Prophets made inroads in other arenas. Richard Dedeaux’s, Doin’ It at the Storefront was a regular feature on Los Angeles PBS affiliate KCET. This photo, featuring Otis O’Soloman, is from the 1972 KCET special, Victory Will Be my Moan.
