Thanks to Rich Conaty, our guide to so many good things, for pointing out this delightful vignette: Bing Crosby and Louis Armstrong having a wonderful time on the Hollywood Palace television show, September 25, 1965 with contrpuntal lyrics and obvious love — for the music, for each other, for the simple pleasure of performing. How good they sound!
This witty and hokey performance is a replay of what Bing and Louis did for their 1960 album, BING AND SATCHMO, with a few modifications. Obviously no one wanted to give free publicity to the Maidenform bra company in 1965 — thus the reference to “fiberglass bra.”
If I could see this on television, I would buy a set once again . . . .
May your happiness increase.
