UP WITH PEOPLE!
THE 1965 SCHICK TELEVISION COLOR SPECIAL
This is the hard-to-find PACE MAGAZINE SING OUT MUSICAL that was broadcast in a television spectacular sponsored by the Schick Safety Razor Co. It celebrates the mid-1960's generation for it's achievements of reaching farther into space, deeper below the sea, and further into science & technology than those before them. The motivational revue consists of The Colwell Brothers, creators of the "Sing-Out" musical explosion, "Up With People!" They are heard here performing: Freedom Isn't Free; The Ride Of Paul Revere; Design For Dedication; Don't Stand Still; You Can't Live Crooked & Think Straight; A New Tomorrow; and others. They also back singer Linda Blackmore on: The Ballad Of Joan Of Arc; and Somewhere. The Green Glenn Singers are led by now-famous actress GLENN CLOSE! I'm not sure, but I think her father was the choral director. She toured with "Up With People" for at least a year. Gleen (as her name is mis-spelled in the liner notes) is pictured with musicians Jennie Dorn, Vee Entwhistle, and Kathe Green who perform: Run & Catch The Wind; and The Happy Song. Charles Woodard performs Which Way America?, and Effie Galletly is heard on The Spirit Of The Green, dedicated to the production's sponsor. The selections were written by The Colwell Bros. & Herbert and David Bliss Allen. The record cover includes photos & quoted endorsements from John Wayne, Pat Boone, and Walt Disney! This is a seldom seen Original 1965 STEREO pressing on the custom PACE MAGAZINE record label (1101), and includes the proper lyric innersleeve. Although open, the shrink wrap is still attached. Highly unlikely to ever be released on CD, the record jacket, labels, and playing surfaces all appear MINT!
Also available in MONO, STILL FACTORY SEALED!
