Editorial Reviews

Rock and Roll grew from the melding of Black Rhythm and Blues with Country and Western. This mixture was so volatile that several southern congressmen went on record stating that Rock and Roll was a plot to destroy American values by encouraging race mixing. Originating in predominately black areas, Rock and Roll started out being labeled as rebellious, primative, black music until white artists like Buddy Holly and the Big Bopper introduced Rock and Roll to the "mainstream" youth in the early 1950's, and their influence along with others began the first true multi-racial and multi-cultural movement in America. The America's Music Legacy series was recorded 1983-85 and produced by 20TH Century Home Entertainment. It showcases the musical legends performing the songs that continue to attract and entice the whole world, because they truly are the best of all that is America. The program is hosted by Fabian and features performances by The Coasters, Chubby Checker, Bo Diddley, The Diamonds, Little Anthony, and many more.
