This could have been a whole lot better July 10 2006
By Kevin ONeill - Published on
Format: DVD
For students of 1950's rock&roll this DVD should be in your collection of all things 50s'. Again, as was the case with all 50s' rock&roll movies, the recording stars of the era are the "stars" of the film. Carl Perkins, Frankie Avalon, Charlie Gracie, Fats Domino(seeing him sing "wait & see" is worth the cost of the DVD alone). But, sadly, "Jamboree" is technically very disappointing. A little attention to detail whould have made Slim Whitman, Charlie Gracie, Jimmy Bowen & Buddy Knox appear a lot better ... what happened to the guitar solo in "hula love"? Were the producers of the film in hurry to get this in the cinemas? Apart from its technical flaws, there are (some) great 50s rock&roll acts in "Jamboree" and some rarely seen long forgotten names like Jodie Sands & the 4 Coins. For 1950s' music fans only.

Essential Rock & Roll for your collection June 12 2002

Anyone who wants to see some great ol' rock & roll should definitely buy this. The product is of great quality, the film itself lacks with no story & cut-off/edited performances. Seeing Buddy Knox do the full version of "Hula Love" would have made my how about on DVD?

When Street Corner Harmony Stood Before a Camera Dec 13 2012
By Gary David - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
The 1950s was a time when it was possible for individual or group acts with just the barest hints of talent to not only land a contract with a record label but also, depending on how well their record sold, a "sing-on" spot in a movie. Granted, the movies were more often than not low-budget, second-rate productions that were usually the second of a two-bill theater presentation and featured well-known radio personalities along with lesser-known actors, but for the music performers, many of whom were just kids straight out of the "country" and inner city neighborhoods, who cared? Such was the case with the film, Jamboree, one of several rock & roll films that exploited the burgeoning teenage market, particularly white teenagers, whose raucous enthusiasm for the mostly black-themed dance music made them such a tempting (and profitable) draw for the label owners. Modern-day fans of this genre, like me, have found that the existence of this film, and other like it, in the Amazon music library is like discovering gold. Withal, it was the music that counted, and it makes the act of viewing these films--and getting past the non-existent or nonsensical plot lines--well-worth the effort. I wanted to acquire this video mainly because it featured the only film appearance of 13-year-old Louis Lymon and the Teenchords, a group that primarily gained its 15-minutes of fame (more like a year) from the its association with the Teenagers, whose lead singer, Frankie, was Louis's older brother. Little did anyone know at the time that 1957, when the film was produced, would mark the beginning of a long slide of the music we now know as "doo wop"; it's what makes the acquisition of this film so valuable for die-hard enthusiasts of this short-lived genre.

Hard To Believe It's Been Over 50 Years Feb. 27 2009
By Craig Connell - Published on
Format: DVD
I believe this was put out only about a year after Dick Clark began hosting the long-running Amercian Bandstand television show. Clark plays an emcee in this film, similar to his role on that famous TV show. It's very interesting to see him as such a young guy. It was over 50 years ago....hard to believe.

Joining him are some megastars from the early rock 'n roll era: Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins Frankie Avalon and Fats Domino and some lesser-names like Jimmy Bowen, Jodie Sands, Buddy Knox and a bunch more.

For viewers looking for upbeat music, as I was, this was disappointing. Most of the songs were Connie Francis-type ballads. Also, the dubbing in here is horrible. It's obvious these singers were lip-synching the music and - no surprise here - they weren't all the greatest of actors. Plus, the script was lame.....very lame.

Hey, that's what you got with a lot of "rock" movies back then - some horrible scripts. I guess you just watch it to see the singers in their heyday.
