The Cat's Pajamas

And speaking as we were last week of the 16-year old Stevie Winwood, here's a rather astonishing performance by Stevie and the rest of The Spencer Davis Group from the 1966 Brit haunted house comedy The Ghost Goes Gear.

With the possible exception of seeing Ray Charles sing in his underwear, this is quite the damndest thing I've ever. I should add that that Stevie quit the band shortly after this was filmed; his teddibly understated British comment on the movie as a career move was that it was "a mistake."
