Vintage Music-Industry Promovideo

(Youtube Direktindustry, via HYST)

Fantastisches uraltes Promovideo der Musikindustrie aus dem Jahr 1951 für die Bosse der Labels damals: Ein Plattenverkäufer versucht verzweifelt, Platten zu verkaufen und erklärt einem unwilligen Kunden den Plattenherstellungsprozess, während dessen sie unter anderem auf Dean Martin, Les Paul und Bozo the Clown treffen, w00t!

Überhaupt findet man im YT-Channel von Dantanas Girl superviele vintage Clips und Videos, Straßenaufnahmen aus dem Hollywood der 60s und alte Gossip-Shows voller alter Crime-Storys und Pulp.

Filmed in wonderful color, this special promotional film was made in 1951 , it is 35 minutes long & is of perfect quality! This lost gem was never shown to the public & was used for promotional use only among record executives! It hasn't been seen in over 55 years!! What's on it? well, we get to see lots of great color footage of Hollywood landmarks first up.

Mel plays a record dealer who is desperately trying to sell anyone a record at the corner of Sunset & Vine streets in Hollywood, California. While pestering several people, (including Yogi Yorgeson!!), Billy May approaches playing a regular guy walking down the street, Mel takes him into his record store, (Wallichs Music City) & proceeds to pitch everything in the store to him.

In the end Billy won't pay the 85 cents for a record & Mel decides to show him exactly how records are made! They go over to the Capitol Records recording studios on Melrose Avenue & meet with Alan Livingston who takes them on a tour, here is where they run into several famous folks while getting into a little bit of mischief along the way! We get to see rare footage of Dean Martin in the studio actually recording one of his hit records! they run into Les Paul and Mary Ford, a vocal group, a country & western singer (Merle Travis?), and even Bozo the clown!
