Synopsis
Filmed just eight months after The Beatles appeared on The Ed Sullivan Show, The T.A.M.I. Show introduced rock n soul youth culture to America in the first concert movie of the rock era. One of the rarest and most sought-after performance films from its time, the 1964 concert event featured future Rock and Roll Hall of Famers The Rolling Stones, James Brown, Chuck Berry, The Beach Boys, Marvin Gaye, Smokey Robinson & The Miracles, The Supremes and many other American and British Invasion hitmakers in their prime. This legendary film has never been available on DVD and has not been seen in its entirety since it originally appeared in theaters in 1964. Mastered from a new High Definition transfer and uncut, this complete version features the Beach Boys performances that were removed following the films initial theatrical run. This is what music fans have been waiting for: the ultimate collectors edition of this long-unavailable landmark film.

Never Follow James Brown by jmwagner66 May 14, 2013 - 5:51 PM PDT

This is a fascinating little bit of cinema and music history. The concert brought together the big names of the moment and a couple of unknowns. The big names have largely lasted. It showed some pretty cool stage performances that you just don't see anymore. I felt bad for the very young Rolling Stones who followed James Brown. He set the place on fire. Poor little Mick did his best rooster move but seriously, don't follow James Brown.

The director pioneered some now standard performance shots and techniques. Really an excellent film.
