Description

The Rock 'n Roll Revue & The Rhythm and Blues Revue: Filmmakers Joseph Kohn and Leonard Reed present legendary greats from the golden era of Rock 'n Roll and Rhythm & Blues in these two feature revues. Willie Bryant hosts these timeless historic variety shows of Rock 'n Roll and Rhythm & Blues music and vocal performances along with comedy and dance routines, recorded live at the Apollo Theater in 1955. The shows feature such acclaimed popular artists as Count Basie, Cab Calloway, Nat King Cole, Duke Ellington, the Clovers, Big Joe Turner, The Delta Rhythm Boys, Martha Davis, and Ruth Brown. This double DVD compilation offers a rare insight into the changing musicals styles from big band and jazz to the emerging era of Rock 'n Roll, Doo-Wop, and R&B. The many standout performances include Big Joe Turner's "Shake, Rattle and Roll," Cab Calloway's "Minnie the Moocher," Amos Milburn's "Bad, Bad Whiskey," The Clovers' "Your Cash Ain't Nothin' But Trash," Larry Darnell's "Better Be On My Way," Delta Rhythm Boys' "Dry Bones," and Lionel Hampton's "Jam Session." Rock, Rock, Rock! A teenage Tuesday Weld, using Connie Francis' vocals, sets the tone for this 1956 musical feature film. This movie is a must-see for any fan of the early days of Rock 'n Roll, showcasing incredible musical performances by greats such as The Moonglows, Chuck Berry, The Flamingos, Lavern Baker, The Johnny Burnett Trio, and Frankie Lymon. Featuring rock promoter Alan Freed, Rock, Rock, Rock! Is a step back in time for all to enjoy the timeless magic of where it all began... before the new rock styles of the 1960's would explode and change music forever.
