      Audience Member Immensely entertaining. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member Blast from the past! Several pioneers of 1950's rock appear in a single concert with some film & newsreel excerpts to remind (or teach us youngsters) what societal and personal angsts were common back in the day. Enjoy these performances from a time when the performers were still youthful enough to own that rock they rolled. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 01/25/23 Full Review Read all reviews
