Ads #73: More Music Ads

As a general rule, I don't care for country music.  However, the outlaw country of the seventies and even early eighties is among my favorites.  Waylon Jennings, Bocephus, Johnny Paycheck, Merle Haggard, Willie Nelson, etc.  This was the Golden Age of country music in my book.  It's interesting to see pictures of Waylon and Hank back when they were clean cut, because the contrast is just plain striking.

Alas, Zager & Evans ended up a one-hit-wonder.  Perhaps they shouldn't have followed up their number one hit with a song about a rapist who nails his own wrists to his jail cell wall ("Mr. Turnkey").  Just a thought.

We're number two! We're number two! We're number two!...... in Canada.  (insert sound of air being let out of a balloon)

In 1975, Kim disappeared completely and re-emerged in the mid-1980s as Baron Longfellow. Go figure.

Clower actually started as a fertilizer salesman; he used his funny stories to make the sale. He's actually quite a funny guy, as evidenced by his 20+ LPs, some platinum.

You may know these identical twins from their long run on Hee-Haw; or perhaps you remember them from an episode of The Bionic Woman (they played cloned detectives).  Or maybe, just maybe, you remember them from their Playgirl appearance in 1973!
