    Really nice find here Hope! This is from the Melody Ranch TV Show that aired on the Gene Autry owned KTLA-TV channel 5 in Los Angeles on Saturday nights. The one-hour show was edited to half-hour programs for syndication.

    Hosts Carl Cotner and Billy Mize (co-host Johnny Bond is clowning around behind them) introduce Waylon who sings live to the pre-recorded track for “Walk On Out Of My Mind” [#5 hit in April 1968] then lip-syncs his single “Yours Love” [#5 in February 1969] Waylon was right in style for that time with his turtleneck shirt and Nehru jacket.

    Billy Mize was a pretty good singer himself although commercial recording success largely eluded him, Billy is now 86 years old, but in 2006 he issued a pair of good albums, SALUTE TO SWING (on Hag Records) and MAKE IT RAIN (on sharecropper records)

    You know Waylon’s suit in this clip looked very familiar to me. Just realized where I had recently seen it!

    I wish Waylon had tried going back to this “look” in the 90s–when he was still making great records but the market wasn’t buying.
