Brewer And Shipley - Song Of The Week

Brewer and Shipley became infamous with One Toke Over The Line when it was first released. Here they are many years after the song's release in a live acoustic performance of the song. They tell the story of what happened when it was first released and also how funny it was that Lawrence Welk had two of his show's singers Dale and Gail perfom the song as a "modern spiritual".

I am pleased to play both clips for you: Brewer and Shipley performing One Toke Over The Line and from the Lawrence Welk Show, Dale and Gail also performing it.
