Back in 1991, some of the djs at WFMU participated in a tribute album to Thomas Alva Edison devised by staff member and improv master, Jim Price that was available as a fundraising marathon premium to support the radio station. This was my contribution, a cover of the Bee Gees song "Edison" from their 1969 album "Odessa." It was an abbreviated version of the song, and my full name was longer than the song itself. Last year I decided to make a video for the song and used footage from the Prelinger Archive, my favorite source for industrial and ephemeral films in the public domain.
Here is the Bee Gees' original version.
