Storyline

This late Friday night ABC TV music series (1972-75), produced by Dick Clark Productions, featured select performances from several concerts each week. Footage of top R&B, Folk and Rock acts of the day included Alice Cooper, Jim Croce. Do Diddley, The Allman Brothers, Seals and Crofts, Curtis Mayfield and Dr. John. In most viewing areas "In Concert" competed with the first half hour of NBC TVs later Friday Night rock entry "Midnight Special". As the "VCR boom" was a decade away, late night viewers would have to chose which act to watch when both shows were on the air at the same time, both a delight and a hindrance for music fans.
