I recently heard the song The Beat Goes On being used for a beer advert in the UK. A quick trawl around YouTube produced the above video. I have posted Cathy Rich's studio cut below. The song appeared on her father's album Big Swing Face Pacific Jazz PJ-10117.

Cathy Rich The Beat Goes On Pacific Jazz
The track was issued by Pacific Jazz on a 45 in 1967 and it is hard to believe that she was only 12!!!
Cathy has a MySpace and works to keep her father's work alive:
The original version of the song was by Sonny and Cher and you can compare the performances by watching the video below - I much prefer Cathy's!! The song has also beeen covered by the band All Seeing I - interesting mix and an ace video!
