"Dick Clark's Best of Bandstand." Vestron. $29.95. Kicking off a highly promising video series, Clark takes us back to the early days of "American Bandstand" (late '50s, early '60s) for more than a dozen engaging performances by some rock Hall of Famers (Jerry Lee Lewis, Buddy Holly, Sam Cooke, the Everly Brothers) and mere curios (the Big Bopper, Edd Byrnes) in a delightfully fast-paced presentation, complete with Clark's original introductions of artists. The talent lineup conveys well the vitality, charm and occasional amateurism of early rock. Information: (203) 968-0000. 1/2
