Kevin Brennan Writes About What It's Like
All I can say is, Appropriate use of exclamation points. (Things really were more vivid back then.)
What year was this filmed, Kevin? I’m guessing ’67.
It does have that ’67/’68 vibe to it, a la Rowan & Martin’s Laugh In… but I don’t know for sure.
It was the backup singers in the background doing the Frug that made me think it must be mid-60s.
Groovy … no, really, King was awesome and so was the band and so were the dancers 🙂
As usual I’m amazed at the great musical stuff that was on TV back then, and I was oblivious… Doh!
But back in those days we had few networks and if you missed a show for any reason, you were SOL. Unless they had a summer re-run season … remember those? 🙂
Oh, for sure! Good time to revisit some especially thrilling episodes of “Gomer Pyle.”
So much to look at in the video. More than one nice guitar, a cool bass, a bitchin’ drum kit, a crazy stage set, not to mention the lovely dancers.
If I ever don’t live in an apartment, I’m buyin’ me a sparkly drum set.
If I ever get a garage, I’ll recreate the whole thing in there. (Including the dancers…)
That’s one spacious garage. I can’t wait to see the ad:
“Over-sized garage for sale. Fits eight cars, a 10-piece blues band with three dancers, or a military transport helicopter. Buyers must appreciate exclamation points.”
