"Do You Remember" a.k.a "Rock 'n Roll Medley" (Lucille, Bird Dog, Runaway, Wooly Bully,
Bread and Butter, Rip It Up, Jenny Jenny)
This show was used heavily in the later years of ShowBiz (from the traditional reel-to-reel format to the updated video-enhanced Cyberstar format). The show is a variation of two medleys originally recorded by Long Tall Ernie and The Shakers, with the addition of the song "Shout" tacked onto the end of it.
- The version performed by the Rock-afire is an altered version of the original medley which was originally performed by Long Tall Ernie and The Shakers (and appeared on the first Stars on 45 LP). One noticeable difference is that "Wolly Bully" is included and Elvis' "That's All Right" was not. The song "Shout" at the end was also not part of the original medley.
Hard Luck Bears
- The Hard Luck Bears
was another animatronic show created by Creative Engineering slightly before the Rock-afire Explosion. On their third showtape the "Do You Remember" medley along with another Long Tall Ernie and The Shakers medley "Golden Years of Rock & Roll" were played (similar to the Rock-afire's interpretation, song arrangements by the Hard Luck Bears were altered).
Cybervision & Reel
- As many people know, the Cyberstar system utilized both audio and video. During the transitional phase to convert all ShowBiz stores to this new system, different variations of tapes were made to fit a store's current needs. So this particular show also exists on reel
, and there's even a version that exists on Cybervision - the earliest prototype version of Cyberstar. The difference between the two is basically that the earliest Cybervision only has footage of the stage without all the crappy animated effects spliced into it.

This is a really fun medley, and includes some neat oldies that aren't often heard such as "Bread and Butter" which my mother would play for me as a kid from her old 45s. It would be hard to go wrong with a medley of oldies, and the Rock-afire definetely hit the mark on this show. It was used heavily throughout ShowBiz's later years, probably because of it's broad appeal and timeless classics.
