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 this episode dating back to August 8, 1959, and featuring the legendary Johnny Cash performing classics such as "I Walk The Line," "Pickin' Time," "Folsom Prison Blues," "Don't Take Your Guns to Town," and many more.
