Storyline

This lively documentary celebrates 1950s rock 'n' roll, both through archival clips of the era and concert footage filmed during the '70s. Although the musicians have aged, the performances are remarkably vibrant, with many acts in fine form. Among the many artists featured are Bill Haley and the Comets, Fats Domino, the Shirelles, Little Richard, Bo Diddley and Chuck Berry. In one of the film's highlights, Diddley and Berry take the stage together to the applause of a rapt audience. Written by Ipsith

I would BUY this movie if it was available!!
25 January 2001 | by (Lumberton, New Jersey, USA) – See all my reviews

My wife and I saw this when it was first released (not that I ever recall it being re-released!) at a 1-screen theater in the Philadelphia area. It had been heavily advertised on a local "oldies" radio station, and many of the viewers showed up dressed for the era - saddle shoes, poodle skirts, etc. My wife and I enjoyed the show, both as a historical overview and a concert. I was fortunate enough to come across a SOUNDTRACK ALBUM (LP) which included the 2-track stereo format with narration on one side and music on the the other channel. Interestingly, though the liner notes explicitly referred to this movie as the source for the soundtrack, there is no mention anywhere in print or in song of Chuck Berry. Anyone know why??
