Once THE !!!! BEAT show was only a legend. Fans and collectors heard that there was a T. V. show in the mid-1960s that captured the very best of the soul and R&B singers of the day. Some said it was made in Nashville and some said that it was made in Dallas. Now, nearly 40 years later, Bear Family has all the answers. All the episodes still exist! It really was in color! And whereas once just fragments of the shows made their way onto bootlegs, now the entire series is available in first-generation quality. This DVD of The !!!! Beat T. V. program contains shows 14 through 17, recorded in 1966. The focus here shifts to the blues. Here is footage of the great Louis Jordan - a little past his 1940s prime, but still fabulous and still leading one of the hottest bands on the circuit, but the real scene-stealer is Freddie King. The foundation of modern rock guitar is right here in these incendiary performances. And on the subject of guitar, there's amazing fretwork from Clarence 'Gatemouth' Brown, as well as some fabulous New Orleans R&B from Clarence 'Frogman' Henry. And those are just the highlights!
