FRIDAY MUSIC: Commander Cody and his Lost Planet Airmen! by JD

Very often YouTube throws up a recommendation and I say- oh, I remember that! And very often I put to one side a half constructed post (or two of them currently) and set about the latest find with new found enthusiasm.

Commander Cody, otherwise known as George Frayne IV, has issued over two dozen albums and singles since 1971 using the talents of a lot of musicians in the process. He seems to be unsure of which genre of music he prefers so he includes most of them and sometimes all in the same record. Not as chaotic as it sounds because he and his band members are accomplished musicians.

Some of the videos below are very clever edits of clips from 'vintage' cinema and TV to match the music and are guaranteed to raise a smile. If you want more you can find them at https://www.youtube.com/c/commandercodyvideos/videos
