Bonzo Dog Band - Live - 1967 to 1969

Here are some Bonzo TV appearances from 1967 through 1969. Only a few of them are lip-synched. The quality of the recordings is very good. The TV shows of interest are; Do Not Adjust Your Set, The Big Show, Colour Me Pop, Footlight Parade, and some others. These live tunes often closely resemble what is on vinyl. The lads were professionals.

National Lampoon - Good-bye Pop - 1976

This vinyl is rare and many oldsters have never heard of it. Some of the same Lampoon artists that brought us LEMMINGS helped with this. You will hear Sean Kelly, Paul Shaffer, Gilda Radner, Christopher Guest, John Belushi, Harold Ramis, and the very gifted Rhonda Coullet. Neil Young receives special abuse by the ensemble. Enjoy.

Annette - Muscle Beach Party - 1964

This was another one of Annette's Post-Disney beach movies, family-safe of course, with Frankie Avalon as always, and with comedic help from Buddy Hackett, Don Rickles, and Morey Amsterdam. Weight-lifter Peter Lupus also appeared and then did Mission Impossible.
