Add to basket BEST OF BANDSTAND VOLUME 3: 1965 -66



It was a golden age of music, when rock 'n' roll and pop was on the rise and local audiences were hungry for more. With TV in its infancy, 1958 heralded the beginning of the much-loved national television triumph – Bandstand.

Featuring 18 classic episodes from 1965 – 1966, Volume 3 includes the Bandstand concert live at Myer Music Bowl in March 1965 (with Billy Thorpe and The AztecsDinah Lee and international star Little Millie) a Bandstand Rock 'n' Roll special featuring Australian live performances from Jerry Lee LewisLittle Richard and The Shirelles, an Easybeats Special and Bandstand special on acts toured by promoter Harry M Miller (with sets from Tom JonesHerman’s Hermits, The Searchers and The Rolling StonesHelen Reddy and Jacki Weaver in their Bandstand singing debuts, Johnny O'Keefe and Brian Henderson performing a duet, as well as several special episodes such as the 'Period Costume Special', the 'Roaring 20s Special' and 'Live from the Alpine Hotel, Thredbo'.
