Manfred Mann vocalist Paul Jones covers the hymn Onward, Christian Soldiers. This clip is taken from the 1967 film Privilege by Peter Watkins, a pseudo-documentary set in near-future (i.e., the 70s) Britain, about a pop star whose career is controlled and manipulated by Church and State.

This is one of my favorite scenes from the movie, especially the milk jars! Paul Jones is not in the beat group in this scene though. Rather, it's the George Bean Group, and happily, they made it to the soundtrack!

Yup, no Paul Jones in this scene.

Didn't they think to hire the Monks for this? Could've saved money on tonsure wig-hats.

Peter Watkins has an "official" site here:
Privilege was briefly available on DVD via Canada's Project X Distribution and New Yorker Films - I say briefly now that New Yorker is out of business. Watkins' work is must-see cinema, so I'm hoping that Project X's Oliver Groom will find a new distribution partner for his label. It would be a shame otherwise.
