Giorgio Moroder Before Disco Happened

Here is a 1969 clip of pioneering synth maestro Giorgio Moroder (going by the more succinct "Giorgio") awkwardly lip-syncing his hit "Looky Looky". He also had a song called "Moody Trudy". It's funny that for as different as this is to the pulsing electro-disco he would go on to be famous for, you can still hear some of the elements of his later music in their infancy here, particularly the very strict, rhythmic feel of the music and the spectacular facial hair. Thanks to my friend Jim for posting this the other day. I had no idea it even existed!
