Recruiting Animal

You're right. It started out slow but turned into a great performance. I had to wonder who the guy in the tuxedo with the pompadour was in the finale. Looked like he must have been another star performer on the show. I wondered how a guy who could do those squats would age and I see in your posting that it didn't go well. Fascinating comment about Elvis.

Yeah, at the time most black artists were copying Frank Sinatra rather than Elvis. Listen to Wilson’s Live at the Cops, Sam Cooke’s ditto, Ray Charles...
