There was no shortage of historic rock music festivals in 1969, from highs of Woodstock to the crashing lows of Altamont. Meanwhile, a full-fledged 1950s rock and roll revival was brewing and the idiom’s pioneers were experiencing a renaissance. No longer viewed as over-the-hill relics, they stood as vital sources of real rock and roll. Combining the two contrasting demographics at one event was a rare sight to behold, but the Toronto Rock’n’Roll Revival represented that unlikely hybrid. And that afternoon, Chuck Berry, the Father Of Rock & Roll, returned to lead the apostles of rock into the next decade.
After decades of inferior releases, for the first time this historical concert is presented in its entirety. The complete concert, mastered from the analog tapes.
