Storyline

Musical variety show, originating from a different college campus each week, featuring various pop-folk groups of the period. Unfortunately, a combination of blacklisting certain controversial performers (most notably Pete Seeger), several major performers boycotting the show as a result (most notably Peter, Paul, and Mary and the Kingston Trio), and the rise of the British Invasion in early 1964 condemned this show, well-remembered by its many fans, to a two-season run. Written by Bob Sorrentino

To be sure - At "Hootenanny" rock'n'roll was definitely O-U-T - (OUT!).

Hosted by Jack Linkletter - "Hootenanny" was strictly all folk music (with some enjoyable stand-up comedy thrown into the mix for good measure).

This "Best Of" compilation is a 3-disc set featuring nearly 60 musical acts performing live at various university venues across the USA.

Filmed between 1963-1964 - "Hootenanny" is a nostalgic look back at the folk music scene of yesteryear, showcasing such budding, young artists as - Ian & Sylvia, Judy Collins, Johnny Cash, and Trini Lopez, to name but a few.

*Note* - The visual quality of these performances is definitely on the poor side - But, all the same - It was especially enjoyable for me to watch when the performers encouraged the audience members to sing along with them (and most everybody did).
