Johnny Cash-Ring of Fire 1963

Wizard Of Oz - Jitterbug (deleted scene)

The film originally contained an elaborate production number called "The Jitter Bug", which cost $80,000 and took five weeks to shoot, only to be cut after the first preview. In the scene, Dorothy, the Scarecrow, the Cowardly lion, and the Tin Woodsman are on their way to the Witch's castle when they are attacked by "jitter bugs" - furry pink and blue mosquito-like "rascals" that give one "the jitters" as they buzz about in the air. When, after its preview, the movie was judged too long, MGM officials decided to sacrifice the "Jitter Bug" scene. The reasoned that it added little to the plot and, because a dance by the same name had just become popular, they feared it might date the picture.
The Witch still refers to the bug in the final film, just before telling the Monkeys to "Fly!" Only home movies of the filming of "The Jitterbug" survive, though the song is on current versions of both the soundtrack CD and the recent anniversary edition videotape. The sequence was also incorporated into a recent stage version of the musical.

Buddy Guy Supershow 1969 - Stormy Monday

"recorded on March 17-18th of that year, featured Eric Clapton, Jack Bruce, Stephen Stills, the Modern Jazz Quartet, and others. "Stormy Monday" finds Guy being supported by Bruce on bass and showcases the twisted genius of Rashaan Roland Kirk, simultaneously playing tenor saxophone and stritch (a straighter version of an alto saxophone), who nearly steals the song"

1-2-3 Skidoo

Hit the decks, friends!!! Incoming! Y'know, '68 was one of this great country's most turbulent years: assassinations, riots, protests, and THIS!
For anyone who has not witnessed the jaw-to-the-floor, scratch-your-head, "what the fuckin' fuck?" wonder of "Skidoo", you have my sympathy. But to show you how nice a guy I am, I'll let you have the trailer. Man, that was some good shit they were on. BTW,I don't condone the use of pot, unless it's with Groucho-and he did experiment with it. Don't believe me? Watch his appearances on Dick Cavett. Poor Gleason had some, too.
Now, who isn't in this off-the-wall trip? And what was the last film trailer you saw in which the announcer sang, and by Nilsson, at that? Can you dig it? No? Please!!! Fascist!
Hey, if this is counterculture, gimme Lawrence Welk.
