Les Paul and Mary Ford

Here's an episode from Les Paul and Mary Ford's five minute show in the fifties.

Proof that in the fifties, networks had no idea what they were doing. Really? A five minute show? The plot of which is Les is trying to remember something that he never remembers? While Mary pots a plant? That's a story?

But as a music video, it's great. Between Les's transcendant playing (I see sweep picking!) and the forward thinking of multitracking, it's still incredible music.
