  1. Man, this set has it all…from roots to stems to branches to leaves…the Family Tree of Rock and Roll is well represented, but I have to say that what first caught my eye was the stunning cover art…brilliant!!! I love the cover of the Soul DVD! But the actual DVDs were dreamy…and harkened me back to a time when I was young, wild, and sweatin’ at the sock hop! WHOOOAH-PAH!

  2. I’m not going to leave a long-winded review like some others have done. But i do have to say that this DVD set is definitely worth the money. You get a whole lot of music that’s for sure. Some of these clips are very rare and hard to find elsewhere. Also, there is a great mix of genres of music and different artists, more than enough to keep you entertained. Bottom line; you get five DVDs, packed with some of the greatest artists of our time, and all for about $50.00. You can’t beat that with a stick. BUY IT!

  3. I bought this hoping that it would be a collection from the “Shebang” show that Kasem hosted in the 60’s on KTLA Channel 5 in L.A. Alas this collection contains nothing from this program. However what it does contain is sourced from many other TV music shows such as “Hullabaloo” and “The Beat Club”. And this isn’t such a bad thing except for the fact that I’ve seen these clips in much better quality in other collections. I would purchase it if you don’t otherwise own these clips and if you can find it for under $30.

  4. These videos really took me back to a time when music was intertwined with politics and social change. Although some of the footage is black and white, I had never seen Blue Cheer or Steppenwolf in their prime. A few clips are fuzzy, but they appear to be really old; Stevie Wonder looks like he’s twelve or so. Most enjoyed the Who live; Otis Redding’s last appearance (also live) before his death; a very handsome Ray Davies; Percy Sledge singing When A Man Loves A Woman; and a terrific Ike and Tina. Altogether, a valuable archival product. Casey’s really a pretty sympatico presenter.

  5. If you like lipsinking you will like this set. There are some live performances but most are TV show performances with lipsinking. I was disappointed.
