strong second episode
16 April 2007 | by (usa) – See all my reviews

The ten episode series of documentaries, "The History of Rock & Roll" moves along with momentum with the second episode, "Good Rockin' Tonight". The series really begins to hit it's rhythm after a first hour that works mostly as an introductory first act by comparison. Like the first episode, these sixty minutes crosscut legendary rock and R&B artists with archival footage, including some great hard-to-find live performances. This episode continues to explore America's racial issues that led to many white artists like Pat Boone re-recording songs recorded by black artists, as well as the continued importance of Chuck Berry and those famed Sun Records artists Jerry Lee Lewis and Elvis Presley.
