Not being very techie, I was very impressed to learn that we could restore and preserve this historic 1970s classic television series by transferring the old 4 inch tape, called quad format to digital format, which improves the picture and sound quality.

From 1971 to 1973, Rollin’ (as the show was renamed) was a showcase for the hottest musical talent of the time. The best performances from the show are collected for the first time on this disc. Hosted by drummer Mickey Jones (Kenny Rogers and the First Edition), this DVD is a loving tribute to a time when popular music had the ability to cross genres and touch us all. These 14 beautifully restored selections from the Rollin’ archives still cast a powerful spell.
