"No one quickened more pulses on THE T.A.M.I. SHOW than James Brown, who cemented his reputation as perhaps the greatest performer alive with an explosive set....He's a powder keg of kinetic energy..."
Description by OLDIES.com:
The 1964 feature film "The T.A.M.I. Show", filmed a mere seven months after the Beatles appeared on "The Ed Sullivan Show", introduced the Swinging '60s to America, is the first concert movie of the rock era, capturing such superstars as the Rolling Stones, James Brown, Chuck Berry, the Beach Boys, Marvin Gaye, and many other Motown and British Invasion acts in their early prime. This legendary film has never been available on home video and hasn't been seen in its full-length version since its initial theatrical run. This special set is what music fans have been waiting for: the ultimate collector's edition of this long-unavailable landmark film.
