Ike Turner and the Kings of Rhythm Live in Concert : North Sea Jazz Festival

Ike Turner

Year: 2002

Runtime: 01:09:30

In this concert from 2002 the late R&B legend Ike Turner performed highlights from his extraordinary five-decade career.
Ike Turner, the man widely credited as making the first-ever rock’n’roll record, died in December 2007, at the age of 76.

One of the most important and influential figures in popular music, he played a key role in the development of rock ’n’ roll, soul and funk music from its early roots in Fifties R&B. Truly multi-talented, as a writer, music scout, arranger, performer and musician, Ike was responsible for a string of classic recordings and hits over the years.

Recorded at Sun Records back in 1951, his ground-breaking R&B chart topper ‘Rocket 88’ is regarded as being the first rock‘n’roll record ever.

Teaming up with future wife Tina in the late Fifties, the duo produced some of the most memorable soul and funk records of the Sixties and early Seventies, many of which crossed over into the pop mainstream. Ike’s immense music talent tended to be unfairly overlooked at times in favour of the media’s fascination with his often controversial personal life, such as his stormy relationship with Tina and his notorious abuse of cocaine over many years.

Always a much-respected figure amongst hip-hop and R&B stars, his musical legacy has since been recognised by the rest of the music community. Ike had made a major comeback in recent years - touring the world and recording a string of acclaimed albums – in 2007 winning the Grammy Award for Comeback Album of The Year for his ‘Rising With The Blues’.

Ike Turner’s outstanding musicianship is very evident from this concert performance filmed at the 2002 North Sea Jazz Festival which features highlights from his extraordinary five-decade career. The package includes blazing versions of the big hits ‘Nutbush City Limits’, ‘Proud Mary’ and ‘Rocket 88’.

The 30-minute documentary ‘The Early Years’ chronicles his early days as a music trailblazer in the Fifties, whilst the 18-minute film ‘Memphis Heroes Award’ honours his contributions to popular music.

  • I Can't Stand the Rain

    Ann Peebles

    Year: 1998

    Runtime: 46 min

    This performance was recorded at Belgium's renowned Lokerse Feesten in 1996. As well as the classic 'I Can't Stand The Rain', the concert includes an awesome version of the autobiographical 'St. Louis Woman (With A Memphis Melody)'. She is best known for her inspirational recording of 'I Can't Stand The Rain', a 1974 classic which no less an icon than John Lennon described as "the greatest single ever." That clearly puts Ann Peebles right up there with soul divas like Aretha Franklin and Gladys Knight, and while the amount of her recorded work doesn't match up to theirs, it's hardly quantity that we're counting. This is all about quality and Ann Peebles has that aplenty.

  • Changes

    Buddy Miles

    Year: 2008

    Runtime: 1 hr 18 min

    In the words of Ben Fong-Torres:
    There are reminders of his status here, although he’s playing mostly cover tunes, along with a rock guitarist and bassist, in a club in Paris in 2003, with a big jukebox as his backdrop. Not the most glamorous setting for a guy who performed with Hendrix, Electric Flag, Carlos Santana, and many others.

    In this concert, filmed at Switzerland's New Morning Rock Heroes Festival in 1995, Buddy Miles re-works in his own distinctive style a selection of rock and pop classics from the '60s and '70s, concluding with a barnstorming version of three of Jimi Hendrix's biggest hits, Purple Haze, Voodoo Child and Hey Joe.

    Runtime: 56 min

    From his early pop days with The Parliaments through the wild days of the seventies and eighties with Parliament / Funkadelic and on to his continuing innovations today, George Clinton has always been a charismatic figure. He is undoubtedly one of the most influential people of all time in black American music blending elements of soul, funk and rock to create a sound that is truly unique.

  • Live at Montreux 1993

    Etta James

    Year: 2012

    Runtime: 1 hr 4 min

    In the words of Ben Fong-Torres:
    Etta James, who passed away in 2012, was such a magnetic singer and presence that she was a semi-regular at the Montreux Jazz Festival in Switzerland, which is pretty selective about its bills. After her crack band opens with a couple, including “Hold On, I’m Coming,” James kills on “I’d Rather Go Blind,” “I Just Wanna Make Love to You,” and several more. “Come to Mama,” indeed!

    Etta James made many appearances at the Montreux Jazz Festival across her long and distinguished career from her first concert in 1975 through to her last in 2008. This film focuses on the concert from 1993 when she was at her absolute peak and complements it with selected tracks from many other Montreux appearances. It features many of her best loved tracks and songs that she is particularly associated with. Etta James was one of the most respected performers of her generation. In a career stretching over 60 years she was inducted into the Rock n Roll Hall Of Fame and the Blues Hall Of Fame, won 3 Grammys and received many more nominations and was named Female Blues Artist Of The Year on no less than 14 occasions. Sadly, Etta James passed away after a long illness in January 2012 and this film is a fitting tribute to one of the greatest female vocalists of the 20th century.

    How sweet revenge can be. Look at this man, who has gathered up all his lost years, who has shaped them with hope, with patience and whose moment has finally come. Look at him, this sixty-year-old man, who'd bring any kid to his knees. Watch him kneel himself at the very first song, his eyes full of tears as though thanking heaven for the opportunity to sing at last, pouring his heart out as though it were his first and last chance. Look at his sincerity, his strength, his energy. Look at this man, who gives himself entirely to the music. Look at 64-year-old Charles Bradley, showing his faith, moving mountains.
