Storyline

Aspiring filmmakers Chris Stamp and Kit Lambert set out to find a subject for their underground movie, one that will reflect the way it feels to be young and dissatisfied in postwar London. This unlikely partnership of two men from vastly different backgrounds was inspired by the burgeoning youth culture of the early 1960s. Lambert and Stamp searched for months and finally found in a band called the High Numbers a rebellious restlessness that was just what they were looking for. Abandoning their plans to make a film, they instead decided to mentor and manage this group, which evolved into the iconic band known as the Who. The result was rock 'n' roll history. Written by Sundance Film Festival

The best film of the year "Lambert & Stamp"
18 March 2015 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

"Lambert & Stamp"rocks your soul, moves your heart, captures your attention with raw, authentic and vibrant communications between rock icons and visionary wizard managers opening their hearts and history in a never-seen-before transparent way. Chris Stamp & Kit Lambert are pioneers in the music world and initiators of the first UK independent record label "Track Records". The magic of their co-creation, THE WHO, Jimi Hendrix, Thunderclap Newman, Arthur Brown and more. Director James D. Cooper was the only film maker trusted to make this film. Producer Loretta Harms dedicated 10 years of her life holding the privately financed, sacred, creative flow of this extraordinary film. Oscar nominated Hollywood Film editor Chris Tellefsen did a vibrant job of editing the film brilliantly.A work of art!!!! A must see!!!
