My Fondes Memory as a youth in love with music
15 February 2005 | by See all my reviews

First saw TAMI in a movie theater in Boston when first released. Returned to see it at least 7 times. One of the greatest concert presentations i have ever seen, my quest is to locate a copy of the film so i can return to the days of music and youthful innocence

I was thirteen years old at the time and in my first rock and roll band as a "front man". I recall sitting and signing along each lyric of each song of each performer. Of particular fond memories are the performances of James Brown and the Famous Flames, who i saw several time in concert during the early and mid 1960s. Also, the "British Invasion groups" were so cutting edge at the time. It was a real treat.
