A record producer named Fred Bailin, who was formerly with MCA Records, produced a concert featuring Various performers from the 1950's and 1960's.
This historic concert took place on April 17th and 18th in 1970.
The result was this 2 CD set, The Original Rock & Roll Show, a Live recording of 13 different artists performing their hits in front of a sold out crowd at the Academy Of Music Theatre in New York City.
An excerpt of the 8 Page Booklet liner notes follows:
"First, you have to picture this....At the Academy Of Music in New York City there are lines around the block to see a Rock 'N' Roll Show!
On the big marquee outside you see the names of groups whose music brightened your life, and made your record collection something to be proud of, why, they all seem to be here, The Cleftones, The Dubs, The Skyliners, The Del Vikings, The Cadillacs, and more! The Alan Freed Orchestra is the "house band", and the crowd is keyed up with nervous anticipation, which is another way of saying that a fight could break out! Shows were put on at the Paramount theatre in Times Square in 56' and 57'. But wait a minute, the scene described here, and it is accurate, is a scene from the year 1970!
This isn't merely a "revival" attempt, it is an honest-to-goodness Rock & Roll Show!!
