(Oops. Neil has a few thousand reviews here on IMDb, so it's not a surprise that one may have found the wrong page.)

This is a review for Musical Merry-Go-Round #4.

#4 involves Les Brown (and his "Band of Renown"); or Orchestra, as it's known here. Virgina O'Brien was here too, singing Carry Me Back To Old Virginny. If you're not into a lot of brass and wind instruments (hey, nobody hugged the high school band?), this won't work for you. You have to love the pork pie hat on the sax man though.

Sentimental Journey was a VERY popular song, back in the 1940's. It doesn't impress so much now, with tattoos and piercings being the current vogue. And frankly, these performers from the mid 20th century look as if they'd LOVE to have 21st century rights.

Nothing new here that you couldn't find on vinyl records, but the video gives a rare perspective on the moment.

(Just a guess here, but I think 70% of these musicians were high on pot.)
