Great, Marc, that you're offering us the opportunity to travel back in time, with posting this documentary.

Great times, despite the conservative government in Germany, back then. Just listen to the radio in Jimmy's car, and watch him grooving along with it. "Jimmy Smith is the name. Organist." Hilarious!
