Tom T. Hall and Jerry Lee sack race



This remarkable document, preserved and extant only here, shows Jerry Lee Lewis among Billy Carter, Barbara Mandrell, Tom T. Hall, Charlie Pride, Jerry Reed, and others, wearing velour designer track-suits, standing in front of a faux-plantation-style edifice at Six Flags over Georgia, 1972, subsequent to the finish of the "Great Race" A&R pillowcase/sack race competition, between RCA and Mercury Records, televised as All-Star That's Amazing, hosted by the, frankly, weird Bill Dodd (in what is surely the most bizarre, Killer performance found in years) ...

Anything Goes mashed potato flakes and canned gravy!


My thanks to killernofiller667, who either had the persistence and resourcefulness to find and upload this, or was the luckiest Jerry Lee Fan on the Internet for stumbling on it--the way I felt after first thinking it was just a spam alert, until I saw what didn't look like Jerry Lee, but was definitely his voice--that's when I knew for sure ...
