I saw Ritchie Valens at the L.A. County Fair when I was a kid.. It was just him playing the elec. guitar, no bass or drums. At that time his only hit was "Come On Let's Go". This was before La Bamba/ Donna was released. Of course he was great!! Does anyone remember or have any information about this show?..

I was there in 1958. Even though Donna and La Bamba weren't released until November, he did perform those songs along with Come On Let's Go, In a Little Turkish Town, That's My Little Susie and Bluebirds Over the Mountain and maybe Hi Tone. Also, The Kingston Trio was on the show as were The Teddy Bears. Do you remember them?
