Lawrence Welk

In my last entry, I linked to a video of one of the early televised performances of the song Pipeline. It was a clip from the Lawrence Welk Show of all places, and of course there were lots of other links to other Lawrence Welk
clips on the same page. One of them was the small hidden gem I am embedding here, a video of Welk and couple of other guys doing "The Johnson Rag".
I don't want to build it up too much, but it's enjoyable on a non-ironic level. I'm a little hesitant to use the word "smokin'", but it fits better than you might expect. And it is a hundred times better than any instrumental with two accordians has any right to be.
