The bonus feature, ALAN FREED'S "THE BIG BEAT" 1957, is actually from 1959. The show features a contest which national prize is a 1959 Rambler. Also, Marv Johnson's "I'm Coming Home" was first released in 1959, on the Tamla label. It should be noted that this is from a local TV show that was a follow up by Freed, after his ABC-TV show, also "The Big Beat", was cancelled after 4 episodes in 1957. (Posted on 10/2/12)
