The Lombardo shows from the Roosevelt Hotel were by far superior.Guy didn't
somehow feel compelled to play such silly songs as Feelings and I Write The
Songs.For this great orchestra,these were ridiculous! I guess Guy felt
compelled to pander to a new generation.If you can find it,and it's not as
uncomplicated as it once was,watch the 57 show.This was when they played
great songs from the 30's through the 50's.This show was really Guy at his

by the way,I'll never understand how Lawrence Welk can be compared to
Guy.Welk did't make a musical dent during the Big Band Era.He played
exactly two weeks at the Roosevelt in the late forty's,primarily playing
the Blackstone Hotel in Pittsburg.Wow!Another television miracle,with his
mediocre band and lousy singers.

What happy memories this video brings back. And what a schlockfest New
Year's eve has become since Guy Lombardo and the Royal Canadians have left
the stage. As a fellow Long Islander I remember Guy piloting his beautiful
mahogany speedboat through the moat at the Jones Beach Theater each night
before the summer stage shows proudly flying the American flag during the
National Anthem. He and his wonderful band are very much missed even after
all these years. No doubt "The Sweetest Music This Side Of Heaven" is now
"The Sweetest Music In Heaven."

I'm sorry,Guy felt somehow compelled to play these dumb songs refereed
too,not didn't.By the way,I wish we could get the rest of this show,my
guess is problems with the Lombardo estate.Best part of Feelings is the
brass sections playing of Last Night I Got That Old Feeling,perfect

another comment from Carl.You know,As a professional musician,I always
resented some so called critics referring to this band as Mickey Mouse,like
Sammy Kaye or Jan Garber.This was a very smart sophisticated group that
played the Roosevelt Hotel for thirty two seasons and during the thirty's
and forty's The Waldorf,at the Starlight Roof during the summers.Virtually
the Toast of New York.

Remembering my parents was watching this every New Years in the 50's & 60's
on t.v..... Waiting for the ball to drop, holding up a glass of bubbly
,holding hands and dancing to Auld Lang Syne in our den. The crap that
that is on today on New Year's Eve is all flash. There is no warmth to
it, and reflection of the last year..... Something is just missing..

This is great . . . but that rendition of the song "Feelings" was just

US TV today is absolute garbage packed with mindless commercials. The old
media is dying out and it deserves to.
We have to go on the internet to get the greatest music and entertainment.
The New York Times, Time Magazine,
Chicago Tribune, ABC, CBS, CNN, CNBC are YESTERDAY'S MEDIA. It is old and
dying.....look at the junk on TV
today...viewership is less than half of what it used to be. Young people
have left the old media. This place, the internet, is where everyone is

I was 13 years old then Dec 31st, 1976 and I probably watched this with my
mom and dad then!! I kind of remember this!! I turned 14 years old on May
21, 1977. The next year Guy Lombardo's brother took over!

although he was never a regular member of this band,Al Conti lead the so
called relief trio at the Roosevelt Hotel for Guy during the 50's.By the
way, if you have a chance to get to the Roosevelt,there are a number of
pictures of Guy.My personal favorite is Guy leading the band placed at the
door of the Roosevelt Grill.You'll have to search around for this as it's
on the lowest level of the hotel where the Grill was located.

i enjoyed Al Conti's piano at a number of clubs in R.I. about 40 years
ago.It's should be noted that he played at the Waldorf's Peacock Alley
during the late 60's.He was discovered by Guy and Carmen at the Providence
R.I. Biltmore Hotel in the late 40's.

This is really great. There is a great pan showing my father in-law,

Lombardo's death.

He was Mr. New Years Eve before Dick Clark. Music was basic but that but
he kept a lot of musicians working for a real long time. RIP Guy and thanks
for the memories! Remember watching with my grandparents and was
a musician and always working on New Years Eve.
