Otis Cooke (Ian McShane) is a British DJ with a late-night American soul music program in Liverpool. His favorite band, The Tallahassees, disbanded years ago, but their biggest hit, "Pickin' Up the Pieces," was never released in England. The film recounts Cooke's adventures and misadventures as he travels to the U.S., finds the band members, and convinces them to get back together for a reunion tour of the U.K and the release of their old songs on CD.

Ian McShane and the entire cast are excellent. The plot is intriguing and the acting is excellent. Funny lines. Believable acting. I loved this movie. Ian McShane is excellent as the DJ who yearns for the past and launches a journey to relive that time. Well worth watching for a second and third time. I was particularly impressed with the quality of the supporting cast. Vernon, Grover, and Eddie were funny and believable. Connie was a delight, sweet and beautiful. Dave was a lovable rascal. Bradley Facemeyer was really menacing with his gang of thugs. I have rented this movie for several of my friends and each of them really enjoyed it.
