    Now I found Let the Good Times Roll on You Tube which I didn’t even know existed before Friday night. I saw the end, but now I’m watching the whole thing. Love it! 

    If you like that, there's another movie focusing on Chuck Berry, called Chuck Berry Hail! Hail! Rock 'n' Roll (1987).  It's on YouTube, but you have to (ulp!) pay for it.

  2. Wasn't expecting to catch all of The Song Remains the Same (1976), but ended up hanging around for the whole thing.  For all it's hard rock image, Led Zeppelin's stage presence is--how to describe it?--almost sedate, introspective, even meditative.  The certainly don't have the exuberance, the frenetic, even frenzied energy of The Who, bordering on anarchy.  Surprised and pleased to hear some of their lesser known songs in addition to the standard hits.  The interludes were a waste of time.  At least they didn't stop the music.

    Am I right in thinking Ben is a fan?

    Yep.  What a waste of time for a classic movie channel.  

    I'm sensing deeper issues here.  Childhood rock trauma no doubt.

  4. Liked T. A. M. I. (1964).  Was pleasantly surprised by Gerry and the Pacemakers and Lesley Gore ("You don't own me. . .").  Chuck Berry a gas as always.  Beach Boys and Supremes a surprising letdown.  The Stones--yeah, The Stones. . . .But James Brown.  Man, a knockout! 

    But, oh the sound!  Ugh!  One long scream from the audience.

    But.  The Main Event:  Let the Good Times Roll (1973).  One of the best Rocknroll concert movies.  What a lineup!  Little Richard, Chubby Checker, Fats Domino.  And the best:  Chuck Berry and Bo Diddley.  The two guys who invented Rock and Roll.  And everyone else made billions off of their genius.  Who was a hotter guitarist than Bo Diddley?

    Looking forward to The Kids Are Alright (1979).  And the Monterey Pop-related movies (Woodstock--hah!). 

     

    Oh yeah.  And the Divine One.

  5. It was on last night. Your tv provider might have it available on their on demand option.

     

    Oops! Missed a whole series of responses. Your TV provider, satellite or cable, should have an on demand channel or menu option. Different channels provide content in that option. TCM might have All That Jazz as one of their On Demand movies.

    He made a major mistake and left all the work orders from previous owner in the glove compartment.  They explained the very low milage

    I said it was a nice car.  I didn't say it was a good one.  Anyhow, this pic of what happens to the car in the movie might appeal to you:

    And especially happy we can now easily bypass the "thread statistics" column that tells us what posters made comments in the thread

    I admit to being dense, how do you do that?

    I'm glad there's a division line between read and unread posts.

    Still don't see a search box.
