A piece of anthology.
26 July 2006 | by agau54See all my reviews

Great film! It's somehow unreal to see all those great names and acts binded together on the very same stage at the very same time. Several of them made history and were real Rock & Roll creators. This is more than a film: it's a piece of anthology. Too bad some artists are dead since, but this adds to the overall importance of this tape. One could question the appearance of Joe Cocker and mostly Boy George along with these early Motown stars: I could personally understand Cocker's presence, specially after his outstanding duet with Patti La Belle. But according to me, Boy George was obviously not at the correct place at the correct time, and it shows in his presence. At least, this is my opinion.
