HASH(0xa5cdaaec) out of 5 stars Superb Star-Studded 50's Rock n' Roll Musical Classic!! May 9 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
This Superb Star-Studded Rock n' Roll Musical Classic finds 2 singing hopefuls rising in the ranks of the bussiness,between performances by the likes of Fats Domino,Jerry Lee Lewis,Carl Perkins,Connie Francis,The 4 coins,Charlie Gracie,Jimmy Bowen,Louie Lymon and the Teenchords,Buddy Knox,Frankie Avalon and Slim Whitman.Also in the cast are Dick Clark and hit songwriter Aaron Schroder;the best songs he wrote were for Elvis and Gene Pitman.It's a wonderful trip into the 50's Rock n' Roll Americana that's very well worth watching!!

HASH(0xa5cdaf3c) out of 5 stars 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.

HASH(0xa5cdaf78) out of 5 stars 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 day...now how about on DVD?

HASH(0xa5941138) out of 5 stars When Street Corner Harmony Stood Before a Camera Dec 13 2012
By Gary David - Published on Amazon.com
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.

HASH(0xa5cdaed0) out of 5 stars Buddy Knox ... Bravo !!!!!!!!!! Sept. 30 2011
By Juan M. Gonzalez Cosio - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
This film is not a fantastic film considering it as a whole. HOWEVER, the brief performance of Buddy Knox singing his "Hula Love" with his Rhythm Orchids including Jimmy Bowen playing the rhythm guitar and Don Lanier, who was one of the finest and greatest rock and roll solo guitarists of the 50's, make this film a must. Yes, this brief performance of Buddy really makes this otherwise mediocre film a great value for the serious lover of the beginnings of Rock and Roll era. It is sad that Buddy Knox has been somehow underrated as a rock and roll star. Buddy was one of the finest and most charming rock and roll singers, and his voice and style were unsurpassed. Buddy Knox was as great as Buddy Holly and Gene Vincent. It is very sad that he passed away in 1999.
