well that's exactly what I was gonna say!  plus, 1967 was a bit before my time; oh how I wish I was there when this was filmed! and thanks to 1) a sober person at the festival who could film stuff and 2) youtube, etc., being available so us post 60s folk can watch it!

Always have to look and see if it is Paolo Nutini or Otis!

Paul Giamatti did this one pretty well in the movie 'Duets', a silly movie about competitive karoke.
