Who needs Pan’s People when you have the massed ranks of the TOTP audience dollies to dance for you.
I hope this ad didn’t intend to portray the rock and roll life as a glamourous one, because if it did it failed miserably.

I don’t remember this record at all — a rather weird tribal-psychedelic remake of “Sugar Sugar” (by Jonathan King according to the internets) — but this is worth watching just for the TOTP audience which is jam packed with dancing dollies (some of whom we’ve seen before) and quite a few suave gentlemen too. It must have been cravat week.
The chart is a wonderful thing too, Perry Como and Andy Williams rubbing shoulders with T. Rex and Deep Purple.
Make sure you stick around for the credits at the end.
