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 »

The 1960s Revisited
13 April 2020 | by StrictlyConfidentialSee all my reviews

Welcome to the "Swingin' Sixties" when "Hullabaloo" made its TV debut (1965-1966) on prime-time broadcasting and, thus, provided lots of great public exposure for the pop-music talent (from both America and Britain) that existed at the time.

Believe me - "Hullabaloo" is a nostalgic "Blast-From-The-Past" that is certain to entertain those viewers who really dig all of the groovy sights, sounds, and fashions from that unique era in pop music history.
