“I weep in joy! I watched this every Saturday and i still think it was one of the best theme songs I have ever heard. I started playing guitar around this time and the theme song was such an inspiration. Once they had a band on there, probably a house band, playing a version of "Get Together" that really inspired me. I recall they were playing Dean guitars which I lusted for at the time.”

“OMG, 1979. I was only 9 years old at the time, but this stuck in my head forever. I thought I would NEVER see this again, just like so many good things from back then just disappeared, never to be seen or heard again. I wish this show could have survived all the way through the 80's-- that would have been so cool to grow up with. Thank you SO MUCH for posting this and bringing back a good piece of my childhood. If this EVER comes out on DVD, I'll be first in line to get my copy.”

“So, I was 12 when this show aired, and I can't even begin to express how unbelievably exciting it was to see an actual band on Saturday mornings. I've had this version of "Get Together" in my head for nearly 40 years and I'm thrilled to find this and realize that it really as great as I had recalled.

“This show absolutely rocked my world as a kid! I was obsessed with guitars and playing in a rock band. I was glued to the television set every Saturday just to see what awesome guitars they were playing and so badly wanted a Dean Z and a Marshall half stack! Lol! Brings back so many great memories growing up in that era.”
