It's a great movie-I love it.SHA NA NA
I always thought ShaNaNa were fantastic then-not at all like the lame TV show.It seems odd that this kind of music was kinda "oldies" even then,though at the time,it was only about 10 years old! Yet as far as musicially-it was a universe away from Jimi Hendrix and such.
sang "At The Hop"
and I remember thinking that maybe some of the attendees were 7 or 8 when it reached #1 in 1958...! I may have enjoyed SHA NA NA
better than any of the other musical acts in the film (except RICHIE HAVENS
). And I LOVE
many of the acts that were in this longer version!
Incidently,we lived in Marlboro,NY at the time,and my Ma took my 2 year old brother Richie to it. Me,a and my other 2 brothers were at home with the baby sitter-we watched Chiller Theater on TV that night! She came home early-she missed Hendrix-because of the rain-and cuz she had the baby,with her.
