If you’re a child of the ’80s you’re probably familiar with the long-running syndicated music television program Solid Gold. The show had its own team of cheesy dancers who appeared at various points throughout the program called, you guessed it…”The Solid Gold Dancers.” Solid Gold featured musical performances and aired music videos from the era’s Top 40 artists. Until later years, the bands that performed on Solid Gold had to lip sync, even the Allman Brothers Band.

The Allman Brothers Band visited the show in 1981 to support Brothers of the Road. Gregg and his mates performed the single “Straight From The Heart,” although “performed” is giving them too much credit as they are clearly miming. Video of “Straight From The Heart” just appeared on YouTube thanks to Rev. Bob. Take a look:
