New Age “Nature Boy” Clip

We’ve been hearing a lot of cool stories lately at the Eden’s Island Blog about Ahbez himself playing versions of “Nature Boy” back in the ’70s for friends using his hand-carved flutes.

With no recorded evidence of these private shows, perhaps this newly-unearthed clip on YouTube will suffice. Behold the Bill Hannaford Quintet:

No, it’s not Ahbez himself, but dig what we get: 1970s videography, new-age stage backdrop, and a bearded bamboo flautist getting heavy on “Nature Boy.”

Ah! It’s damn near perfect!

(P.S. That title card at the beginning of this clip looks an awful lot like the ’70s Source Family Restaurant sign.)
