Where were we 40 years ago?

Four decades ago, we were working hard, puttling together a piece of moviemaking titled "The Jazz Singer." There are a lot of stories about the making of the film, and many of them are true. But here's my favorite clip from the finished product, a scene where Alan Lindgren and I are playing a duet of a song called "On the Robert E. Lee." There were lots of hits on the soundtrack album, and this isn't one of them, but it remains my favorite, because it's so doggoned much fun to play. It's a song you couldn't do today, because parties are illegal. Enjoy!

    In my opinion, that was one great movie with a whole lot of awesome songs. It looks like everyone had fun making it.....don't care what critics say....

    I didn't particularly like the film, but the soundtrack was great. On the Robert E. Lee was as much fun to listen as it clearly was to play.
