Overview

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.
