1960s TV special: The Music of Lennon & McCartney, part 2"

Picture 12-15 This clip from a 1960s UK TV special, The Music of Lennon & McCartney has guest performances of three songs. My favorite is the jazzy drums and keyboard instrumental version of "A Hard Day's Night" by Alan Haven and Tony Crombie, complete with shots of mod gogo dancers' boots kicking in time to the wild riffs.

  1. …This is actually far better than another “Beatles Tribute Show” from the mid-70’s. Sentry Insurance sponsored a show that’s considered the worst televised morass of Beatles covers in the history of television and human history. The Sentry Collection of Fine Music Presents the Works of John Lennon and Paul McCartney was so dismally bad that IMDB doesn’t even have a listing for it. About the only person I can recall starring in it was Tony Randall, whose cover of “For The Benefit Of Mr. Kite” was quite arguably the worst performance of his otherwise illustrious career. Anyone else who prostituted themselves by appearing in it, much less singing, probably would be embarasseod to the point of tears if confronted by the realization that someone actually remembered the show.
