This here little piece of audio is of a vinyl single that was distributed to American Airlines employees announcing the new 'Doing What We Do Best' campaign in 1974. Side one is the chairman at the time making the announcement and side two is the longer version of the jingle itself.
Normally with these type of videos, there's a long shot of the label, but this record had NOTHING fancy about it, thus I'm slapping in a small gallery of the airlines' old (and older) logo. May it rest in peace.
On a personal note, I had this record for freakin' decades! I don't know why I wanted this record, but I do remember that I charmed my Mom's friends, who were obviously AA employees, to give it to me. This was a good 5 to 6 years before I got into airline memorabilia.
Annoying side note: I remember a Facebook video of a 3 minute radio aircheck of a radio station near LAX operated by PSA airlines named KPSA. If anybody out there has a much larger extract out there, please let me know.
Thanks for putting up with this obscure culture fanboy behavior, Don-O
