Re:50 years ago today...
We are coming up on the 50th for the T.A.M.I. show as well. I took it out on video and saw it for the first time last night.
I have seen out takes, and heard DJs talk about it for 50 years, and now I understand why it is an important mile stone in rock and roll.
It opens with Chuck Berry who segues into Gerry and the Pacemakers. We see Smokey Robinson lose his voice and keep going, Leslie Gore, with perfect pitch (live with no re-dos), and more greats, before James Brown came on and gave the show of his life. The Rolling Stones had to follow Mr Brown, and the experience changed them forever. The house band was the "Wrecking Crew". It is well worth the watch.....I got it from Netflix
