Emmett posted this some five years ago and yet I've only recently discovered the below, from what I believe is Michael Lindsay-Hogg's film Neil Young in Berlin from 1982. But this is mesmerizing. Is that a clapping giant? Who cares. "Dinosaurs in the computer age...Dinosaurs, vegetable eaters."

Walter Wanderley Trio - It's A Lovely Day Today
Words and music by Irving Berlin, born Israel Baline on May 11, 1888, in Belarus. Irving was 62 years of age and living in New York City when he wrote this number, for a musical entitled Call Me Madam.
And yes, almost exactly five years to the day, this marks the triumphant return of Astrud Gilberto to these pages.
Engineered by Rudy Van Gelder.

The Great Society - Love You Girl
Many thanks to the lads in MGMT for peeling this one off in their Late Night Tale. The melody keeps bringing me back to the "Smiling faces, I can see" part of As Tears Go By (also from '64/'65)... coincidence?
Written and sung by David Miner. Recorded October–December 1965, Golden State Recorders, San Francisco, California.
