Memorable show
26 January 2004 | by See all my reviews

This was one of the first attempts to create a tv series on history of rock'n'roll. Since it was done in '77, before punk, they connected the whole thing in pop context tieing it with crooners and jazz. I remember watching this show as a very young boy and it really made a mark on me, as well as the eclectic soundtrack it came with. The sountrack is what kept the memory of this show alive.
