Thanks, Cory.


This is real… isn’t it? Please tell me it’s real. If this is some kind of Funkmaker 1.3 I will be so mad!


So claims Wikipedia, though without a linked footnoted source, for what it’s worth:

Louis Armstrong recorded the song on 29 May 1970, for an LP entitled Louis Armstrong and Friends (aka What a Wonderful World). The 1970 Louis Armstrong recording was released as a Philips 7" 45 A side single in the UK, 6073 703.


Yep, apparently real…



What an odd choice to cover, musically at least. The production and arrangement reminds me of one of my favorite albums, the soundtrack to the movie Hair.
