The Rockabilly Legends: They Called It Rockabilly Long Before They Called It Rock and Roll

This chronicle of the birth of rockabilly and rock 'n' roll journeys from the Depression era cotton fields of Arkansas, Tennessee and Texas into the southern juke joints, honky-tonks, recording studios and rural churches, and onto the world's stage. The compelling story is told by the musical pioneers themselves: Elvis Presley, Carl Perkins, Johnny Cash, Roy Orbison, Jerry Lee Lewis, Buddy Holly, Buddy Knox, Gene Vincent, the Johnny Burnette Trio and others. Red Robinson and Jerry Naylor host; Wink Martindale narrates.
