Now (2007) released on DVD by UGHA with improved video & audio quality, & also contains the film plus just the performance excerpts, 114 minutes total. The film as presented here is only fair quality, the soundtrack is not in synch with the video, & it's choppy, but that's all that can be expected of this very rare 1956 film (from a 16mm print) featuring some great R&B acts, including the best Girl Group of all-time, The Miller Sisters. The Millers were the daughters of Long Island A&R man, songwriter, & arranger William Milller (Hull, Onyx, Acme, Miller High Fi, Concha, Ember, Tri-Boro, Q, Rayna, Yorktown labels, etc.), & he taught his daughters well. Here they are featured doing two uptempo dance numbers: "Do You Wanna Go" (a re-titling of their own "Roll Back the Rug") & "Everybody's Havin' a Ball", both of which are far from their best material, & lip-synched here, but it's great just to see them in their only video appearance. It's also great to see Teacho Wiltshire's Band here.
