Perry Como’s Music Hall was a special edition of Perry Como’s network show that dropped in 1967. Shot in living color at NBC, the show was meant to be a festive attempt at keeping his show alive for a new generation. In this case, it meant inviting George Carlin and Nancy Sinatra onto the program. Something for the squares and then something for the freaks.
The DVD even comes with bonus features that sees Como pairing up with Carol Burnett and Flip Wilson. It’s a fun release that shows a 1950s talent trying to extend his reach. Still, it’s so old fashioned that it will go over the heads of most of my audience. That being said, I’ll continue to ask you guys to stretch your horizons.
