The complete Concert. Mastered from the Analog Tapes: There was no shortage of historic rock music festivals in 1969, from highs of Woodstock to the crashing lows of Altamont.
Meanwhile, interest was steadily building on another front. A full fledged 1950s rock and roll revival was brewing, and the idiom’s pioneers were experiencing a renaissance. No longer viewed as over-the-hill relics, they stood as vital sources of real rock and roll.
Combining the two contrasting demographics at one event was a rare sight to behold, but the Toronto Rock’n’Roll Revival 1969, held that September 13 at the University of Toronto’s Varsity Stadium, represented that unlikely hybrid. That afternoon the Father Of Rock & Roll returned to lead the apostles of rock into the next decade.
After decades of inferior releases, for the first time, this historical concert is presented in its entirety. Includes, School Days, Carol, Memphis, Nadine and 10 more. Packaging: CD 6 Panel Wallet
