Thanks for the great background information on the TAMI show, Wiluxe2.
It was certainly a defining moment in my musical life.
I saw it as a teenager when it first came out and will confirm that the segment by James Brown was the mother of all show-stoppers. I went to the movie to see the Rolling Stones segment, but left remembering James Brown signing Please, Please, Please. He was the real deal. I've seen some versions listed on e-bay with Ike and Tina doing Please Please Please, and other ones where it's JB. Perhaps over the years the movie segments have been cut and spliced so that the original show would be hard to recognize.
By the way, Leslie Gore's 'You Don't Own Me' was also great. She really has a wonderful melodic voice.
I'd be interested in the full length version in Video or DVD if it's available. JTL
