Album review: ‘T.A.M.I. Show’

The “T.A.M.I. Show” (“Teenage Awards Music International”) featured many of the era’s best pop-music acts, and for years this film was unavailable because of a rights dispute. The film features classic American rock, British Invasion acts, plenty of Motown, surf music and plain old pop. The concert’s house band included members of the famed Wrecking Crew, the crackerjack L.A. studio musicians who played on many ’60s hits: drummer Hal Blaine, guitarist Glen Campbell and pianist Leon Russell. Extras include commentary by director Steve Binder and rock historian Don Waller; filmmaker John Landis, who attended the show as a teenager, offers a few words on the film’s original trailer. —
