I give a brief introduction to where I got the album that this piece came from, which is titled, “Inside Stories With Dick Clark”. The main double LP-album set is titled, “Twenty Years Of Rock N’ Roll, “1953 to 1973″, which, in my opinion, is the “Golden Age Of Rock N’ Roll”, although there are many great artists after 1973, I still consider this as a time when rock music made major changes in those first 20 years. In the early 1950′s, there were artists such as “Les Paul” who was laying the ground work with his revolutionary use of the Gibson electric guitar, and multi-track recording technology, and both of these technologies were still in their infancy. Also, and slightly earlier, the studio tape recorder introduced by “Ampex” corporation in the late 1940′s played a major roll in the mastering of rock n’ roll records, along with the multi-track capacity it had to offer. But the main interest was all of the great new artists that Dick Clark helped introduce to the music world by way of his American Bandstand show, which started out in Philadelphia on television station WFIL-TV Channel 6 (currently now WPVI-TV). Hosted by Bob Horn in the early years, Dick Clark became the host in 1957, and remained a fixture there throughout the 1950′s, 60′s, 70′s, early 80′s. There is much in depth information online, and in publications to document it all here, so kick back, and let Dick tell you about the first 20 years, and enjoy the American Bandstand fashions and music from the …

Dick Clark’s American Bandstand is the evocative souvenir of the show’s history and one of the first opportunities Clark has had to reminisce about the people who produced, watched, and appeared on American Bandstand. His reflections on the early days of rock ‘n’ roll, when Bandstand played such an influential role in bringing the new sound to a mass audience, are a blast from the past for the generations of people who grew up with the show. Colorful memorabilia from each decade and extensively captioned photographs from the Bandstand archives provide visual counterpoint to Clark’s candid, behind-the-scenes look at the program. With a magnificent full-size poster of “footprint” dance steps, anecdotes about songs and performers, and sidebars filled with facts and trivia about the music and the kids who danced on the show, this nostalgic book is a rockin’ trip down memory lane.
