Georgy Girl

I've been out at Mardi Gras parades these past two weekends, having a raucous time, but I did record The Lawrence Welk Show while I was out catching beads.

Last night's repeat from April 29, 1967 featured a real gem - The Lennon Sisters performing their wonderful version of Georgy Girl. This is one of my very favorite recordings of theirs. It's simply superb. I've uploaded the clip to YouTube, as well as made some caps.

Just wanted to say thanks for keeping up this blog. I'm a newcomer to the Lawrence Welk/Lennon Sister thing, having just discovered them this last fall on PBS. I'm realtively young for a Welk/Lennon sisters fan (28), but never-the-less, there's something strangely alluring in it all. Anyway, I appreciate all the screenshots, videos and MP3s... this stuff isn't easy to find, and I know you must put a lot of time into it. Thanks, and Happy Mardi Gras!

Just saw a lovely remembrance of the Lawrence Welk Show on MPT over the weekend. Oh what memories! I can remember sitting with my family on Saturday nights grooving to those classic tunes - most especially the Lennon Sisters. My favorite was Peggy. Now married over 30 years to a devout Lennon Sisters fan, we often pull out the old lps and continue to groove away to the tunes. You should see us dancing around the family room. We've even converted our children! Just wanted you to know that I've really enjoyed the trip down memory lane via this site!
