"The Mothership" is the centerpiece stage prop used by Clinton and his multiple bands during their live concert performances. This object is a near-exact replica of the slightly larger Mothership that was used exclusively at the closing moments of concerts during the height of the band's popularity from 1976-1981. This replica prop was built from metal, plastic, and glass in the mid 1990s and used on the "Mothership Reconnection Tour".
The board is mounted on a pole attached to a wooden block, both painted silver. A wooden frame painted white, brown, puce, and tan surround the board. At the top is the Soul Train logo and the text "SCRAMBLE BOARD."
