Product Description:

Before gangsta rap, Compton, California, had a very different musical identity: every Saturday night from 1952 to 1961, the brightest stars of country music would gather at a 2000-seat theater in the Los Angeles suburb for a series of live performances known as TOWN HALL PARTY. Staged to resemble old-fashioned hoedowns, the concerts were originally broadcast on radio and later expanded to a three-hour television show hosted by quiz-show emcee Jay Stewart and cowboy singer-actor Tex Ritter (father of THREE'S COMPANY star John Ritter) with a house band led by Joe Maphis. The TOWN HALL PARTY series captures some of the television show's most memorable moments, including these two episodes dating back to October 11, 1958, and August 22, 1959, and featuring guests Lefty Frizzell, Johnny Bond, Skeets McDonald, Rose Lee Maphis, the Collins Kids, Billy Mize and Cliff Crofford, Hank Snow, Jimmy Pruett, Martha Carson, Charlie Williams, and Fiddlin' Kate.
