British pop nostalgia!

Not a movie, but a lip synched collection of performances from acts that were part of the British Invasion, that followed the dynamic entrance of the Beatles to the music world. Some of these acts did not make a big splash on this side of the pond, but a lot of them did. Featured are: Herman's Hermits, Billy J. Kramer and the Dakotas, Peter and Gordon, Honeycombs, Nashville Teens, Animals, and of course,the Beatles. It is so much fun watching these young acts before they honed and polished their acts.

Has it s good moments

A compilation of British groups of 1964 who were big hits...in Britain. The film is bookended with Beatles live in concert doing "She Loves You" and "Twist and Shout". That footage is great and the constant screaming and views of the female audience are amusing. The rest of the film varies. It's shot in strong color and the songs are performed on very interesting sets...but not all the songs are good. Highlights are Billy J. Kramer and the Dakotas doing "Little Children"; the Four Pennies doing "Julie"; the Animals doing "House of the Rising Sun" (look for the moment when the lead singer forgets to lip sync a word!) and Peter and Gordon doing "Please Lock Me Away". Also Sounds Incorporated jump around a lot and overact to a degree that's almost embarrassing. The rest of the acts range from OK to pretty terrible--the Nashville Boys will have you reaching for the fast forward button. Also the lip syncing and fake playing of instruments is pretty obvious. But this is interesting to watch and a valuable time capsule of the "British invasion" of the early 1960s. A must see if you're a 1960s music fan. I give it a 7.

History of Lip Synch

This movie is a bunch of syn-ch performances of British groups in the mid-1960's. It proves that not all Brits groups then made it big in the USA. I mean I never heard of the Pennies until I saw this. It does open with an excellent Beatles clip and closes with another. A highlight to me is the Animals doing "House of The Rising Sun" which was recently remade again and "Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood". There are a lot of sequences where the sync-hing is obvious but it is all in color. A British DJ sort of hosts this hodge podge collection. The DJ made headlines in recent years as a child molester. This is a good collection of the era though I prefer Hard Days Night - Beatles for their music. Richard Lester did a much better job. Still the featuring of the Honey Combs here with one of the first women to be a rock drummer makes this notable. This is viewable and some of the songs have held up over time. Herman's Hermits are another highlight here too.
