Before chubby songbird Grammy-sensation Adele , there was Cass Elliott.
I betcha 1969 audiences had never seen a female singer as "HEAVY SET" on television before
-- little did they know what Americans would look like 40 years later.
If you had your first TV special - wouldn't you have Buddy Hackett and Martin Landau as your guests?
Watch Cass, Edna and Buddy shine despite the lackluster CBS Television City audience who seem to be looking for Cher or The Smothers Brothers. LINK is HERE
