Sam (and, um, Howard)

For Wednesday, the great Sam Cooke singing "Basin Street Blues" on the Mike Douglas Show. His talent can't even be dimmed by annoying intrusions by Howard Keel, a fellow guest. (In fairness, I think this was a segment at the end of each show in which guests were encouraged to goof around with each other, but still).

Howard Keel was a little shy at first, but by the end he seemed to be Sam's biggest fan. I love the way he sings the song so effortlessly, yet with feeling. It's a great, classic clip!
