Bobby Darin & Stevie Wonder duet

Was checking out bOINGbOING's post of Stevie Wonder appearances on Sesame Street, and I came across this gem which almost brought tears to my eyes. Two of my favorite crooners, do a "If I Were A Carpenter." The video quality is bad,(sound is a little better), the set is cheesy, it seems all primed to be a disappointing phony TV experience... Transcendant. Reminds me of seven generation mix tapes kids used to pass around in the day. The genius shines right through the static and fuzz of time and reproduction.
