Today was the first time I bothered to learn anything about the clavinet. I knew that it was a keyboard, and that it was electric. I knew what it sounded like, and that Stevie Wonder used it to great effect on "Superstition". That's about it. I never even bothered to look it up. But earlier today I was wondering why the clavinet was all over the place in the seventies, and then pretty much petered out after that. So I took five minutes out of my very busy schedule to read the Wikipedia entry. The clavinet was only made from 1964 until the early eighties. And done.
