Who Said Black Folks Can't Swim?

Today, we dig d-e-e-p into the Soul Closet for this almost surreal item: a 1964-ish TV performance by Bobby Freeman, then 24, singing "C'mon On Swim." We dig Bobby, but the go-go dancers "swimming" across the floor at the end...why, that's just priceless.

Yes, it looks like they were being pulled on some kind of boards. Wild, wasn't it?
