Spectacular For Our 1975 Spectacular: A Hard-Workin' Dog

One of my favorite Sesame Street clips from when I was a child, this debuted in a 1975 episode.

There's an urban legend that the vocalist and guitarist here is Neil Young. That isn't true. It's a country singer and jazz musician named Fred Wardenburg. Sadly, Wardenburg died in 2006.

(although I am quite sure that Neil would have done this piece, had he been asked.)
