We gave it an A

While Yanks endured ”Don Kirshner’s Rock Concert,” BBC viewers got the cream of rock’s crop, most not even lip-synching. This essential compendium’s treasures run from a nearly pubes-baring Alice Cooper in ’71 to a moptopped Michael Stipe in ’84, making whistle-stops for Elton, Iggy, Roxy, Bruce, Beefheart, and a not-yet-gray Emmylou.
