Video of the Week

Marvin Gaye and Tina Turner perform “Money” and “I’ll Be Doggone” on ABC’s ‘Shindig!’ 4/7/65.

From Wikipedia:

Accompanying the music acts of the week, Shindig! also featured a dance troupe called the Shin-diggers. One of the regular dancers was Teri Garr, who would go on to find success as an actress. The Shin-diggers’ assistant choreographer, Antonia Basilotta, later changed her named to Toni Basil, and would go on to have a successful music career with the hit song “Mickey“.

The series house band, the Shin-diggers (later renamed the Shindogs), featured a young Glen Campbell, Billy Preston, and pianist Leon Russell.

The Blossoms, an all-female vocal group featuring Darlene Love, backed up many of the performers and were occasionally featured in spotlight performances.

    Now, that’s my kind of music!! I’m old enough to remember the show.

    And, I don’t even remember that book. It might have come from Granpas’s stash.
