How old do you think the video is?

I've re-discovered a tune "This Time" sung by Troy Shondell. Information says that he was born in 1939, & passed away in 2016 at the age of 77.The video shows him performing the song, & people are dancing to it. In the video,Shondell certainly doesn't look THAT old,& the people who are dancing are wearing clothing that wouldn't be all that old either.This information but together has made me wonder just how old the video is. What do you think?

    Judging by fashion I'd say mid 80's and he would have been in mid 40's which he appears to be?

    Shondell did his cover of that song in 1961 around the time he was 22.  Looking at the instruments & amplifiers in the video, & at him in it, I'd say he was about 35-38 years old.  That would give a date in the mid-1970's.
