Starring: FERLIN HUSKY, JAYNE MANSFIELD, MAMIE VAN DOREN, RICHARD KIEL
Directed by: ARTHUR C. PIERCE
In the backwoods of Tennessee, country singer Woody Weatherby receives word that he has inherited a casino in Las Vegas. Elated, Woody and his buddy Jeepers head for Nevada in their dilapidated jalopy Lightnin’. When they arrive, they find that their bonanza is nothing but a debt-ridden dive. Enlisting the aid of Jayne Mansfield and Mamie Van Doren, the boys are determined to make Woody’s Golden Circle a success. Jayne is hired to manage the gambling concession while Mamie is supposed to be a singer, but most of the time they just hang around and look pretty (so what’s wrong with that?). But it takes the shrewd business sense of Aunt Clem from back home to make the place really take off. She books the finest talents in country music for the entertainment, and their appearances form the true high points of the picture.

Atkins Chet & Jerry Reed - In Concert At The Bottom Line on June 22, 1992 DVD (DVD)€30,00
Chet Atkins and Jerry Reed in concert together. What a treat!! These two masters of the guitar complemented each other so well that it is hard to imagine one without the other! Chet Atkins, the subdued quiet picker who thrilled at performing the fast, frantic instrumentals written by his energetic alter ego, Jerry Reed. Their careers intertwined for most of forty years. Chet, about 12 years the senior, had perfected his style by the time a young Jerry Reed was being inspired by Chet’s records. After getting a start in the music business in his native Georgia, Jerry moved to Nashville in the early 1960’s and quickly found work as a session guitarist and songwriter. He attracted the attention of Chet, who by then was an established record producer for RCA, and a prolific recording artist in his own right. Chet Mr. Guitar” Atkins recognized Jerry’s unique ability to write and perform intricate fingerstyle guitar instrumentals and quickly started recording Jerry’s tunes on his own albums.
By 1967 Chet had signed Jerry Reed to RCA, and with Chet as producer, Jerry turned out hits like Guitar Man, The Claw and Amos Moses. Jerry’s LP, ”Explores Guitar Country” produced by Chet, set the stage for their collaboration on two LP’s in the 1970’s, ”Me and Jerry” (Grammy award winner), and ”Me and Chet” from which came great tunes like ”Jerry’s Breakdown” and their definitive version of ”Cannonball Rag.” Chet continued to feature Reed instrumentals on his albums, and Jerry continued to record and tour while finding time to act in such diverse films as ”Smokey and the Bandit” and ”The Waterboy.”
Chet and Jerry were in the limelight as a duet again in 1992 with another Grammy award winning album, ”Sneakin’ Around.” That CD led to several show dates together, including this performance at the Bottom Line. The instrumentals that were shared by these two guitar giants will be played and studied as long as there are guitarists on this planet. Mark Pritcher (CAAS President)”
Atkins Chet - Rare Performances 1955-1975 (DVD)€30,00
Few names are as synonymous with the guitar as that of Chet Atkins. He set the standard by which generations of country fingerstyle guitarists have benn measured. But his influence transcends regions and genres. The sound of 20th century guitar would not be the same without the impact of this gentle genius who was at the height of his influence and creative powers when the performances presented in this video were captured.
The much travelled Mr. Guitar” is seen playing in this video collection everywhere from Nashville to Norway. His signature Gretsch Tennesseean guitar, on which Chet made exquisitely effective use of its Bigsby vibrato bar, is heard in all its sweet, reverb-laden glory on many of these clips. But Chet, whose versitility embraces all styles of guitar, is also seen playing a classical model and a Martin dreadnaught. No matter what he plays, the sound produced becomes a distinct auditory fingerprint of the man known in Nashville as C.G.P. (Certified Guitar Player).
The relaxed mastery evident in this video explains why Chet was honored in 1993 with a Lifetime Achievement Award Grammy: ”For his peerless fingerstyle guitar technique, his extensive creative legacy documented on more than one hundred albums, and his influential work on both sides of the recording console as a primary architect of the Nashville sound.”

Cash Johnny - The Man, His World, His Music (DVD)€20,00
The producers of the documentary movie Johnny Cash: The Man, His World, His Music set out to fill 100 minutes of TV time by focusing on one of the leading lights of country music in the late 1960s. They were rewarded with a unique portrait of an artist who, by the time the documentary was screened, was arguably as famous and as popular as any singer in America. The film – first shown in Britain on cinema screens, rather than TV – was shot over slightly less than a year. The shooting covered the period between the mixing sessions for ’Land Of Israel’, a track from Cash’s spiritual LP The Holy Land, in the final weeks of 1968 to the Country Music Association awards ceremony in the early autumn of 1969.
