Does the DVD include outtakes of the film that made for the opening titles?  I had read that it might.

I read somewhere that the opening sequence, featuring J&D, would be featured without the credits. Not sure, though.

New DVD sounds like you are there!  Didn't like the comments in the booklet about Jan & Dean trend riding.   In my opinion, thier contribution to the TAMI Show and Rock and Roll was more than 2 songs that "come off as more products of their time and place (and old-scholl showbiz conventions)."  More later... Gotta go catch that last ride to work!

Just got back from work.  I just wanted you to know despite what I wrote previous,  this DVD is COOL.  I really enjoyed commentary from Steve Binder, sounds like he has met many interesting people in the music world. 

The opening still has credits and there are no out-takes.

I picked up two copies and also received 2 posters! 

Get your copy ASAP and enjoy.

I got mine in today. It's great. Jan & Dean perform pretty well. Their vocals aren't terrible. There are other acts that struggled vocally as well. J&D did fine. The comments about Jan & Dean being trend riders didn't bother me too much because they kept up with what was going on, just like almost every other act in the world. The comment really didn't need to be made. The skateboard thing was original, and if they would have included production in the comments, Jan was very innovative and original. But I get what the guy was saying, as far as that performance, Jan & Dean wasn't quite up to par with James Brown and Leslie Gore. Great video!

J&D never made any attempt to replicate their recorded vocal arrangements in a live setting . . . (and there are understandable reasons for this, given their schedules).

Their brass/woodwind element was there . . . basically charts from the studio versions . . . but vocally, the "live" stuff doesn't carry.

And when you have an iconic thing like TAMI, it's going to be all the more glaring.

It's a shame Jan didn't use the better "Music City" arrangement for the theme song ("From All Over the World"), with full backing harmonies. The single version, as heard in the film, is so sparse and ineffective by comparison. It's also out of tune in places.

Yeah, I don't know why Jan chose that arrangement for From All Over the World. Music City was better. After watching the show, there were a few pitchie moments outside of Jan & Dean. I think the worst vocal was Mickey's Monkey by the Miracles. The Beach Boys had a couple of vocal hickups, but they were playing so fast, it's hard to hear. Brian was great on Surfer Girl. J&D certainly wasn't the worst live vocal on the show. Mickeys Monkey had to be the worst. Best vocal, to me, was Leslie and best performance was James Brown. Funniest moment was the Flames introduction by Jan & Dean. I think the show flowed very well. And I think Jan & Dean were great hosts.
Hopefully this release helps J&D get into the Hall of Fame. I sure hope it doesn't hurt there chances.

Just watched the DVD . . .  amazing quality.

Drummer for James Brown kicks major ass.

At the end, when the Stones are playing everyone back on stage, Jan & Dean and Mike Love scoop up Dennis Wilson and run with him across the stage. Pretty funny . . .

Great Beach Boys set.

And cool commentary on Jan & Dean from director Steve Binder.

Just to add my voice to those above. I have just received my copy of the DVD. I had to convert my DVD player to multi-region but it was well worth it. To see Jan and Dean and the whole show in clear pictures and sound for the first time was a revelation. Like many others I had only seen it before as a poor copy.
I see reading across the board a number of comments on Jan and Dean's performance. I thought that their quality as performers made up for some of the vocals.
I never quite understood why Jan was so keen to advertise his backing singers on the albums (quite an unusual idea initially) but didn't have them singing alongside he and Dean to 'fill out' the sound on stage.

Surprised no one mentioned that the BBs are singing backgrounds off stage for the 2 J&D numbers (kind cool). Leslie Gore kicks butt on this program and shows what a great singer she is. I think the issue with Mickey's Monkey was that Smokey had blown out his voice at that point. It sounds much more raspy on that tune and it seems like he's really pushing for volume - which, by the way, usually causes a singer to go flat. Possible?

Where did you hear the BB's were singing in the background of the Jan & Dean set? I thought it was the Fantastic Baggies.
TAMI was a great show. That fact that there were a few vocal hick ups just means it was LIVE. and that's cool. Jan and Dean in the intro was great pop culture stuff. and Dean skateboarding on stage was a great moment too. I thought they represented themselves well
