NOTICE: SHUTTING DOWN 4 JAN 2015

On January 4, 2015, I will be shutting down the server that hosts The TV IV website. It has been a very long time since I've been able to put any decent amount of time into the site, and ad revenue is plummeting. I think it is time to shut it down or hand it off to someone who can keep it going properly. If you are interested in taking over the site's code and data, contact administrators at tviv.org. --CygnusTMtalk

Season Five of Soul Train premiered on August 23, 1975. With the 1975-1976 season, Soul Train instituted a new theme: "Soul Train '75" by The Soul Train Gang. Starting with Episode 155, there is a new opening sequence: The Train is chugging from behind the Earth towards the screen, then riding down the countryside blowing colorful confetti from the smokestacks, then goes through a tunnel into a city before it goes into the studio tunnel with the dancers. This opening was also used for the first 8 episodes of the 6th season.
