This lively documentary celebrates s rock 'n' roll, both through archival clips of the era and concert footage filmed during the '70s.
Although the musicians have aged, the performances are remarkably vibrant, with many acts in fine form. In one of the film's highlights, Diddley and Berry take the stage together to the applause of a rapt audience. Written by Ipsith. This is a great movie for those who grew up in the 's. I didn't. I wasn't born until , but when I was a young tyke, I had to see this movie from the moment I saw the TV spot advertising it on television.
The movie was loaded with all kinds of footage from the 's, and included in this footage was some ancient looking film clips of the students in High School in Hicksville, NY. These students were demonstrating good and bad dress codes. On the left of the teacher were the ones dressed poorly with t-shirts, 'dungarees', open toed shoes, etc. And on the right, a group of kids that would make today's crowd look like the Peanut Gallery.
In addition to this footage, there was other footage showing the fads of the day, the cars, Chuck Berry's tour bus sitting in a junk yard, and all kinds of things that I had never seen at the age of 11 or so. It was a collage of old films and reminders of an era past that people were trying to remember by the early 's.
The makers of this film used a technique where they had one inmage on one side of the screen and another image on the other side. So, while the footage would roll on the right, you would see a modern-day Chuck Berry singing in concert. The film was half concert and half archival footage. It was a great film. The 5 Satins did a set too and let us not forget that 'guitar playing fool', Bo Diddley.
Bo was there with his rectangular guitar, a pimp's hat with a feather and his uniquie timekeeping abilities. Tina Turner. Three Dog Night Celebrate. Them Gloria. The Zombies Time of the Seasons.
