      • Here's a review:

        "Hollywood Palace has long impressed as a slickly produced vaudeo, and the preem of the seventh season was no exception. Bing Crosby teed off the 69-70 term, as he has the six previous. This time, Crosby's bit included clips from his previous intros and Der Bingle performed an original song about the Palace and its guest celebs through the years. The song was hardly chart material but served its purpose of setting the proper motif for the new season. . . . Also on hand was Engelbert Humperdinck, whose presence accentuated the star caliber of the guest line-up. All hands joined in a medley of Beatle hits, which among other things demonstrated that the Liverpool four have assembled a first-class repertoire of 'unhard rock' music. . . . Crosby closed the proceedings with a sentimental number."
        ('Variety' 15th October 1969)
