Rock Follies

Rock Follies, and its sequel, Rock Follies of '77, is a musical drama shown on British television in the 1970s. The storyline followed the ups and downs of a fictional female rock band called the "Little Ladies" as they struggled for recognition and success. The fictional band was made up on-screen of talented session musicians as well as the three lead actresses who proved they could sing, and the spin-off album of music from the series entered the UK charts at number one (a common occurrence now, but exceptionally rare at that time). The songs were written by Andy Mackay. Lyrics and screenplay were written by Howard Schuman. [Text from Wikipedia – to be changed.]
