If you were alive in 1957, and old enough to enjoy Rock and Roll, you will probably remember the group, "The Diamonds" who had just launched their super hit "Little Darlin' ".
A good friend -- even older than I am, sent this one to me and I had to share it! Now, you youngsters may not recognize any of this, but for you that are too young to remember - it was a time when the performers were happy, enjoying themselves, respecting their fans, dressed appropriately and their lyrics could be understood.
They did not feel obligated to scream, eat the microphone, mumble inaudible lyrics or trash the set.
In 1957, The Diamonds had a hit with "Little Darlin" 47 years later, they were requested to perform at Atlantic City ...
This link leads to both performances.
Watch the first one then scroll down for the new one 47 years later.
Hope you enjoy.
47 years apart 2 Performances -- If you can't see it by clicking on the address here, then just type it in on your computer. I hope you can see it, it's a great look back and really fun videos!
