This film belonged to a genre of films that began in the mid 60s that were actually stage productions broadcast on Closed Circuit TV and recorded on Kinescope for theater distribution, a process that had been traditionally used for replay of major prize fights. These films also included the heralded The Big T.N.T. Show (1966) as well as the theatrical 2nd version of Harlow (1965) starring Carol Lynley. See more »
The opening song makes two factual errors. First, its mentioned that Chuck Berry will perform "Memphis", which he does not do in this show. The second error refers to the Rolling Stones as being from Liverpool, when they are actually from London. See more »

I wasn't even born when this movie came out but back in the late 80's I got to watch that show which certainly gets the energy going. The T.A.M.I Show is truly one of the best Rock document performances of it's time which gives you proof that rock was starting to rise out of the ashes again. You got rock veteran Chuck Berry who certainly made one of his first comebacks doing that time doing Johnny B Goode and his current hit single Nadine. Gerry & The Pacemakers does Maybeline, Don't Let The Sun Catch You Crying & It's Going To Be Alright. Fellow countryman Billy J Kramer & The Dakota's does Little Children & Bad To Me which were written by Lennon & McCartney.Motown takes centre stage like Marvin, Smokey & the Supremes featuring Diana Ross. Three of these acts were great even though Diana & the Supremes were a tad nervous but they pull it together after the third song. Besides the great performers of the Beach Boys, jan & Dean The Barbarians, The final two acts certainly made the T.A.M.I. the sucess it became. James Brown without question stole the show which made him the legend he is today. The Stones came after him but they couldn't follow James which you can bet from hearing Mick sing he was a bit down but as seasoned professionals they pulled together. I sincerely hope they do put this out on DVD or Video.
