The scenes in the Disco Records studio showing records being made depict the recordings being done direct to acetate or lacquer master discs. By 1957 all records were being made with tape recorders; the tapes were later mastered to discs in labs set up for that purpose. See more »

The plot is representative of what often times happens in the music and film world. Who is who contacts, sponsors who can drop money into a record label or film production can frequently try to overtake the direction. The story is about the struggle to do what you believe in.
What I found most interesting was the selection of music. Finding Maya Angelou singing and dancing was quite a treat. This was her first film, I prefer her as a poet. Also The Treniers a long forgotten 50's rock/blues/jazz group and the Hi Los/s with theirbeautiful harmonizing voices. The dance numbers focused on calypso of course, but cheesy All in all a C movie but by watching it I was able to revive a connection to the music of the 50's era.
