This could have been a whole lot better July 10 2006
By Kevin ONeill - Published on Amazon.com
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
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
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 day...now how about on DVD?

Hard To Believe It's Been Over 50 Years Feb. 27 2009
By Craig Connell - Published on Amazon.com
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.

Schlocky movie with some cool musical performances Sept. 14 2005
By Bryan Barrow - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
It's great to see Carl Perkins, Jerry Lee, Fats Domino and others perform in this film, although the soap opera plot of two young singers managed by two divorced spouses is a little much at times
