The T.A.M.I Show – Uncut

In 1964, American International Pictures released what would become the precursor to the Woodstock film and the music video. It included performances by many of the most popular rock acts from the United States and England. Directed Steve Binder and his crew from The Steve Allen Show, the program was recorded using a precursor to High Definition television, invented by the self-taught “electronics whiz,” Bill Sargent. “Electronovision”, as it was called, captured more than 800 lines of resolution at 25 frames per second. The format could be easily converted to film via kinescope recording an enhanced resolution that made it possible to enlarge it for the big-screen. Here it is, uncut and in high quality.

    The looks on Smokey and Gerry Marsden’s faces when everyone is brought out to clap on Lesley Gore’s song is hilarious. Like “What the heck is all this silliness about?”
    Billy J. Kramer – what a phoney baloney with all that waving.
    The technical values were great, but the “artistic” production…well, glad I missed it back then!
