Editorial Reviews

Town Hall Party was California's largest country music barndance, running from early 1952 until early 1961. The show was broadcast every Saturday night from a theatre made up to look like an old barn in the Compton suburb of Los Angeles. Crowds numbering up to 2000 would fill the old Town Hall to see and hear the top country artists of the day. The first hour was broadcast live over KFI and reached a wider audience when NBC syndicated the show on radio. The broadcast was extended to three hours when KTTV-TV televised the show. Jay Stewart (who later hosted the TV quiz show 'Let's Make a Deal'), and Tex Ritter were the MCs and the house band featured a Who's Who of West Coast country music, including Joe Maphis, Merle Travis, Skeets McDonald, Johnny Bond and Tommy Duncan.

This Town Hall Party broadcast on DVD features: Introduction by Jay Stewart / Joe Maphis and the entire cast: Rainin' On The Mountain / Skeets McDonald: What Am I Doing Here / Joe & Rose Lee Maphis: Tell Her Lies And Feed Her Candy / Johnny O'Neill: Wagon Train / Johnny O'Neill, Billy Mize & Cliff Crofford: Tom Dooley / Norma & Linda: Lookin' Back To See / Tex Ritter: The Wayward Wind / Wanda Jackson: Mean Mean Man / Pick Me Up On Your Way Down / Fiddlin' Kate: (Fiddle Instrumental) / Jimmy Pruett: Sweet Georgia Brown / Merle Travis: Way Down Yonder In New Orleans / Billy Mize & Cliff Crofford: Gotta Travel On / Jeannie Sterling: The Day The Rains Came / Bob Luman: Rockin' Robin and much more.

Town Hall Party is a 1958 television show that features in a guest star spot Wanda Jackson. Only 21 years old at the time, she really rocks out. Mean Mean Man, Rock Your Baby, and Hard Headed Woman are all terrific ! She also does three country numbers, Pick Me Up On Your Way Down, Alone With You, and Queen For A Day. I have met Wanda and she is wonderful to her fans. And she does a fabulous show in person.

This and other Town Hall Party tapes are used for gifts to a musician who played back in those days. He absolutely loves them and got very prompt and pleasing service. Thank you.
