Lost Classic
1 February 2008 | by (Los Angeles, California) – See all my reviews

This show was what shows like "The Music Scene", "Solid Gold" and "American Idol" wish they could be. I was born the year the show went off the air and even I can appreciate this show for what it was. Imagine a show where every week you would get the top rock and roll acts from America and England and, for the most part, they would perform absolutely live. That was what this show was like. In fact, from what I've seen of most of the clips that I have been shown throughout the years on VH-1 and even now on You Tube, there was hardly any lip synching and that way you could separate the great bands from the not so great ones. Also, let's not forget the dancers. That was what really made the show as well as having the likes of a pre-"Here Come the Brides" Bobby Sherman as well as Donna Loren, a girl with a great voice who should have become a big star. It is too bad that it has never come out on DVD. If it did it would become one of the biggest selling DVD's ever.
