Storyline

Casey Paxton, a hopeful rock and roll star, is trying to break into the business by going from studio to studio with his girlfriend and attempting to convince the radio and TV executives there to play his song. This story is mainly just a backdrop for the movie's real aim: the presentaion of about 20 different hit songs, performed by the artists themselves. Most of the acts are relatively unknown today, but a few moderately well-known singers, like Jackie and the Raindrops, and Freddie Cannon, are also featured.

Vagrants, Chiffons, Peter & Gordon, Millie Small, and more
2 May 2004 | by (San Francisco) – See all my reviews

A rather disjointed meld of a 1964 UK music flick 'Just for You" (directed by Douglas Hickox) and later US scenes directed by Vince Scarza. The UK footage owes more than a bit of its inspiration to "Pop Gear". The US bits (yes the Paxton plot is relentlessly dopey) at least have cool DJ's from 60's Top 40 Philly stations and some decent songs to keep it interesting.

The plot is obviously dispensable and mercifully occupies little screen time. The oft repeated truism that any film with Freddie & the Dreamers is intolerable for viewing is at least somewhat untrue in this case as they actually play one of their hits, "You Were Made for Me". The music clips (especially the brilliant Chiffons song "Nobody Knows What's Going' On In My Mind But Me") seem suspiciously like "Scopitones", the proto-MTV loops that played in special jukeboxes of the 60's.

Studio pianist Johnny B. Great does "If I Had A Hammer" while cool looking black couples dance wildly. It's So Hard to Be Good" by Louise Corday, The Bachelors, A Band of Angels, The Applejacks, Freddie Cannon, Jackie & the Raindrops, The Vagrants, The Merseybeats and many more. It will please mod era enthusiasts.
