Trivia

Many of of the recording artists that appeared on "Hullabaloo" sang live as opposed to lip sync. Those that sang live or played instruments were often accompanied by pre recorded instrumental and back up vocal tracks, in order to sound as close to the recording as possible. This format began in the 1960s and is still used effectively today. See more »

This "Hullabaloo" special was quite enjoyable but I wanted to see more
9 March 2013 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

This is actually a review of a retrospective special of this show as hosted by Peter Nooone of Herman's Hermits. He intros many of the acts that appeared on the show during its two season run. If not him, then many of the show's guest hosts in vintage clips do it. By the way, because many of the tapes are now lost, most of the clips are black-and-white kinescopes and not the color video originally presented. Anyway, the most exciting of the performances involved the show's dancers, usually female, shaking up a storm like during The Young Rascals' "Good Lovin'" or Nancy Sinatra's "These Boots are Made for Walkin'" which also has the bizarre sight of giant boots on stage. In some other performances, those dancers are standing still whether as mannequins or, as in The Byrds' "The Times, They Are A-Changin'", as hunters about to aim! Since this aired on PBS, there were also pledge breaks that had interviews with the producer, choreographer, one of the dancers, and Leslie Gore who performed on the show though no clips of any of her songs were shown except as a snippet. Overall, this was quite an enjoyable special but it left me wanting more. Maybe there are some individual eps somewhere here online...P.S. During the Trini Lopez segment where he sang "If I Had a Hammer", my mom reminisced about seeing him in concert with Dad as her date when they lived in Chicago. They happened to have a couple of his albums at the time.
