REVIEW: One of four movies featuring Mr Rock & Roll, Allan Freed. The movie really is no more than a vehicle for featuring quite a number of rock’n’roll artists from the day. The artists featured here are almost like a Who’s Who of rock’n’roll. Those featured are Alan Freed and His Rock’n’Roll Band, Teddy Randazzo, The Moonglows, Chuck Berry, LaVern Baker, Frankie Lymon and The Teenagers, The Flamingos, Johnny Burnette Trio, Jimmy Cavello & His House Rockers, Cirino & The Bowties, Ivy Schulman and The Coney Island Kids. Also featured is the voice of Connie Francis lip-synced to by Tuesday Weld in her very first movie appearance. The story line is rather pathetic, but, who cares when you have such a line up of talent and some classic performances. Probably the highlight would be the only known footage of The Johnny Burnette Trio performing “Lonesome Train (On A Lonesome Track)”.
*Please note that this DVD features the motion picture Rock, Rock, Rock only and does not feature the movie The Alan Freed Story as in Cat. # DVD 1073.
