Album Notes and Credits
Proceeds from THE CONCERT FOR THE ROCK AND ROLL HALL OF FAME will benefit the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame and Museum.
Recorded live at the Cleveland Municipal Stadium, Cleveland, Ohio on September 2, 1995. Includes liner notes by David Wild.
Booker T & The MG's' "Green Onions" was nominated for a 1997 Grammy Award for Best Rock Instrumental Performance. Al Green's "A Change Is Gonna Come" was nominated for a 1997 Grammy for Best Male R&B Vocal Performance.
On Labor Day weekend of 1995, a gaggle of Rock And Roll Hall Of Famers joined with a group of younger artists to inaugurate the Hall Of Fame Museum in Cleveland. With Booker T and the MG's as the house band and a roster of some of the greatest performers in rock and roll history, it was an event that will be remembered forever, especially with the help of this 2-disc chronicle of the concert.
Not surprisingly, the old timers make the biggest impact, with Jerry Lee Lewis exerting his rocking authority on "Whole Lotta Shakin' Goin' On," and Sam Moore of Sam & Dave dishing out some deep soul on "Hold On I'm Coming." Other highlights include Al Green's spine-tingling rendition of the Sam Cooke classic "A Change Is Gonna Come," and the understated cool of Booker T & the MG's as they step into the spotlight for a lowdown "Green Onions." As this 28-song document proves beyond a shadow of a doubt, rock and roll is here to stay.
Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (9/5/96, p.62) - 4 Stars (out of 5) - "...a splendid souvenir....captures both the majesty and sweat of essential rock & roll at its tumultuous finest. There's a surprise or two, of course, but for the most part, the predictably great acts...are as spectacular as you'd hope they'd be..."
Q (2/97, p.103) - 3 Stars (out of 5) - "...Beyond the all-star games of generational tag, Bob Dylan delivers a creditably enunciated `All Along The Watchtower,' Al Green reveals himself to be a Time Lord...and John Fogerty makes brilliantly ferocious use of the evening's house band, Booker T. and his augmented MG's..."
