A Witches Tangled Hare

There's a few good gags here and Chuck Jones is no where to be seen except a little in the design and some posing. A bit cringe-worthy at the end, but most of the later Bugs tag lines were.

St. Louis Blues - Alvino Rey Orchestra

I remember being very disturbed by this sound as a child when I heard this sound on children's records. The vox recorder was over used as a gimmicky tool to try and keep peoples attention as the big band era started to wane. This performance could have done without the puppet.

Craigie Hills, Dolores Keane & Reel Union-1982

I saw Dorlores in concert in Ottawa, Canada, in the late 80's. By this time, her voice was suffering from her heavy smoking habit as she was having trouble finding her breath. Still, she has the most clear and distinctive Irish female voice for her time. You may have heard her on the 'A Womans Heart' CD series singing with other great Irish singers like Mary Black, Eleanor McEvoy, Maura O'Connell and Sharon Shannon. This clip is from TG4, the Irish speaking TV network broadcasting from Dublin.
