OUR MESSAGE TO THE PEOPLE - ROOTS OF ROCK 'N ROLL

 

IN THE 1985 I WAS INVITED TO A RECORDING SESSION IN ORDER TO DO A SONG WHICH WAS "THE ROOTS OF ROCK 'N ROLL'S" ANSWER TO "WE ARE THE WORLD."
 
THE "ROOTS OF ROCK 'N ROLL" CONSISTED OF MANY RECORDING ARTISTS FROM THE 50'S & 60'S INCLUDING: THE TOKENS, THE SHIRELLES, THE CHANNELS, THE DUBS, JOEY DEE, THE EARLS, REPARATA & THE DELRONS, MARY WELLS, JOHNNY MAESTRO, RANDY & RAINBOWS, THE JIVE 5, THE CHIMES, THE CHANTELS, THE ELEGANTS, LEE ANDREWS, BO DIDDLEY, FREDDIE CANNON, BOBBY LEWIS, BOBBY RUSTICI, JAMES BROWN, AND THE FLEETWOODS. . . . . OH YES, I FORGOT, THE REGENTS. . . . . . .
