Movie - Jamboree (1957) (DVD)€29,00
Jamboree, known as Disc Jockey Jamboree in the United Kingdom, is a 1957 American rock and roll film directed by Roy Lockwood. Its story is about a boy and girl, Pete Porter and Honey Wynn (played respectively by Paul Carr and Freda Holloway), who become overnight sensations as a romantic singing duo who run into trouble when their squabbling managers (Kay Medford and Bob Pastene), try to turn them into solo acts. Against this backdrop in cameo performances appear some of the biggest names of rock and roll in the 1950s lip-syncing to their recordings.

Producer Albert Zugsmith serves up another all-star expose with High School Confidential. Delivering a superb performance under the circumstances, Russ Tamblyn heads the cast as typical” high-schooler Tony Baker. Usually seen in the company of his voluptuous ”aunt” Gwen Dulaine (the truly impressive Mamie Van Doren), Tony convinces one and all that he’s looking for kicks of the controlled-substance kind. In truth, however, our hero is really an undercover narcotics agent named Mike Wilson, bound and determined to smash the operation of drug lord Mr. A. (Jackie Coogan). The once-in-a-lifetime cast includes such worthies as John Drew Barrymore (Drew Barrymore’s daddy), Ray Anthony (then married to Mamie Van Doren), Charles Chaplin Jr., Michael Landon and Jerry Lee Lewis as ”Himself.” This updated Reefer Madness is not to be missed! ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide
Various - Good Rockin` Tonight-The Legacy Of Sun Records (DVD)€20,00
”Sam Phillips’s Sun Records will forever be best known as the label for which Elvis Presley made his timeless first recordings. But Sun earned its legendary status by also recording any number of other blues and rock & roll greats, including Howlin’ Wolf, Jerry Lee Lewis, and Johnny Cash. This 112-minute, 2001 documentary from PBS’s American Masters series features plenty of reminiscences by Sun old-timers (including the ever-voluble Phillips, who was not, apparently, universally loved by his artists) and some vintage film footage. But the best moments come when more contemporary artists–ranging from Paul McCartney, Jimmy Page and Robert Plant, and Mark Knopfler to Live, Third Eye Blind, Ben Folds, and even Kid Rock–do their versions of Sun classics like ”Honey Don’t” and ”That’s All Right Mama.” Several of these performances can also be found on the excellent Good Rockin’ Tonight CD; the documentary is good, but if you have to make a choice, go with the CD. -Sam Graham
Historians may never agree about where and when rock ’n’ roll was born, but they do agree that an entrepreneur in the world of music named Sam Phillips began a revolution and spawned a legacy when he created Sun Records. This Memphis-based success story defined some of the most appealing roots of American popular culture with such seminal artists as Elvis Presley, Carl Perkins, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, and so many others, all reprised in this two-hour American Masters film with such performers as Paul McCartney, Jimmy Page, Robert Plant, and Live, many accompanied by Elvis’ original sidemen, Scotty Moore and D.J. Fontana. Highlights include a moving rendition of ”Lonely Weekends” with Jerry Lee Lewis and Matchbox Twenty, and an emotional reunion of old Mississippi Delta musicians. Songs: That’s All Right (Paul McCartney), Honey Don’t (Ben Folds Five), Rock n’ Roll Ruby (Mark Knopfler), I Walk the Line (Live), My Bucket’s Got a Hole in It (Robert Plant & Jimmy Page), Blue Suede Shoes (Johnny Hallyday), Who Will the Next Fool Be (Zucchero), Cry, Cry, Cry (Third Eye Blind), Drinkin’ Wine Spo-Dee-O-Dee (Malcolm Yelvington and Kid Rock), Lonely Weekend (Matchbox Twenty).”

hit ”The Fat Man” on piano, and we see and hear such storied figures as Professor Longhair, Allen Toussaint, Earl Palmer and a still-vibrant 96 year-old Dave Bartholomew (the co-writer, producer and arranger of most of Fats’ hits) talk about their personal experiences with Fats.
