Mini Skirt Monday #69: Singers & Musicians

folk musicians 1969

It's 1973, you've been on the road all day on a business trip and it's time to stop someplace for the night.  You pull in at the Holiday Inn and the girl with the miniskirt checks you in.  You toss your stuff in your room and immediately head to the lounge.  The Scotch tastes especially good in the lantern lit room.  There's live music tonight, so you ease back in your leather chair and enjoy the performers.... especially the singer in the miniskirt. Ahhhhh.

Alas, those days are gone.  But Retrospace is here to keep that miniskirt flame a'burnin'.  So, let's check out a bunch of singers and musicians decked out in their minis.  Enjoy.

  1. Farfisa! The last one reminds me of the The Andy Griffith Show episode "Opie's Group", where he joins a band and Clara becomes their manager.

    Is it weird that the first thing I noticed in #2 is that cool old PA speaker?

  3. Picture #3 is the Ralph Sloan & The Tennessee Travelrs - they were strictly a square dance group that mostly appeared on the stage of the Grand Ole Opry. To the best of my knowledge, none of them sang

    After Ralph died in 1980 they became the Melvin Sloan Dancers
