Ray Charles On The Bell Telephone Hour (c 1968)

'68c TV Bell

The Bell Telephone Hour was a long-running (1959 – 1968) NBC music program. Stock footage agency Research Video mentions a performance on this show of Yesterday by Ray Charles, from “1970”. Stills from this performance can be seen here: 1, 2, 3. The correct year must be 1967 or 1968 (Ray’s original studio recording of the song was first released on his album Listen, in 1967).
