A dazzling series of segments from the benchmark music-TV programme "Melody Ranch", which brought rising and well-known stars to country music to West-Coast television in the late '60's and early '70's. Such artists as Glen Campbell, Merle Haggard, Barbara Mandrell, Waylon Jennings, Roy Clark, Donna Fargo and others (appearing on various volumes of this Melody Ranch series) are seen as young singers on the rise, performing the hits that would soon make them country superstars. Nostalgia buffs and country-music lovers alike will be compelled by glimpses of today's veterans as eager youngsters - and by reminders of the charm of pre-MTV approaches to music television.
