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 »

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.
