This disc (in particular) is the very best of the series. Dual sided disc with many episodes and solo as well as groups back from 1965-1966 season. Color and B&W . 1965 -66 was the year that television was transforming from black and white color. Kinescope was common when filming as well. Kinescope was a camera aimed at monitor then signal sent out live to the US and Canada. Britiain was also transmitting live by satellite with this Hullabaloo series. There were live transmissions (from then Beatles manager Brian Epstein) . A must have for folks. Warning for handling of disc! Due to it being dual sided...careful to prevent scratches and finger print smudges. A true winner for the big stars of music of 1965-66
I only caught a few of these shows when they originally aired. Sure, they look dated but still are good representatives of music at the time. This one features Vikki Carr, the Animals, Frankie Avalon, Chuck Berry, the Byrds, Trini Lopez, the Cyrkle, Sammy Davis Jr, The Four Seasons, Martha and the Vandellas, Gary Lewis and the Playboys, Marvin Gaye, Lesley Gore, Herman's Hermits, the Mamas and the Papas, Barry McGuire, the Moody Blues, Paul Revere and the Raiders, Peter and Godon, Nancy Sinatra, Sonny and Cher, Dusty Springfield, the Supremes, Dionne Warwick.
There are funny moments, such as Vikki Carr serenading Peter Noone of Herman's Hermits with one of his tunes, Noone and Freddy of Freddy and the Dreamers cracking up on a duet, and 2 guitarists from the Raiders pretending to play their instruments behind their heads (maybe they had seen fellow Northwest guitarist Jimi Hendrix do it for real).
The answer, of course, is no. A lot of time has been spent whining about the stuff on Hullabaloo that wasn't really rock and roll. Sure, safe acts, crooners and Vegas swingers ruled on the show - particularly as hosts - but it all works as a beautiful period piece. Rock and roll was only a decade old when these shows were filmed, and TV execs were fighting a losing battle to co-opt it. The purity of performances by the Animals, the Yardbitds and the Byrds show how uncontrollable the energy was. Anyone who grew up in the era will love this. And if you remember the actual show, you'll spend days wiping that grin off your face.
Like Captain Kangaroo and Mickey Mouse Club, (10 yrs earlier), this show was aimed right at my age group. Nice selection of programs and well produced discs of quality, at least as good as it was first run on mid 1960's TV's. If you like watching vintage programs like this. it is exactly the way it is described above. No complaints - and I sure enjoy the memories these shows conjure up.
My dad enjoyed watching the shows, since he remembers watching as a kid. And I could get his perspective since it was entirely new to me. I never to know what some of those groups looked liked~
If you enjoy 60s music and nostalgic performances, you will love these
I couln't stop watching the 4+ hours of this marathon from the oldies. Memorable Sammy Davis Jr. with the Supremes was AWESOME along with Herman's Hermits.. Small problem with back N forth between black and white and color but I plan to watch it over and over.. I Highly recommend it!!!!!
