Leonard Nimoy - The Ballad of Bilbo Baggins

Uploaded on Sep 6, 2011 SputnikMonkey's channel

"Sometimes, a body gets a hankering that only Leonard Nimoy singing about hobbits while surrounded by 60's pixie chicks can sate. Fortunately, we live in a world where those hankerings need not go unfulfilled!

This was originally filmed in 1967, on a variety show called Malibu U. The colour portion of the video is from 'Funk Me Up Scotty,' a 1996 documentary from BBC2 about the musical careers of the cast of the original Star Trek. The show cut the last verse and an instrumental/dance interlude, which I've restored using black & white footage from I know not where."
