Rollin' On the River

Long before Kenny Rogers achieved pop and country superstardom, he was a member of the late '60s group The First Edition, which had five top 40 hits, including "Ruby, Don't Take Your Love to Town" and "Just Dropped in (To See What Condition My Condition Was In)."

This success led to the airing of a November 1970 television special, "Rollin' On The River," hosted by Kenny Rogers and the First Edition. The response was so overwhelming that CBS turned it into a weekly music/variety show.

From 1971 to 1973 "Rollin'" (as the show was renamed) was a showcase for the hottest musical talent of the time.
