    ★★★★

    A fun little time capsule from the early days of rock & roll featuring many of the top acts of the day (Little Richard, Fats Domino, Gene Vincent, the Platters, etc.) and several unremarkable performers you’ve never heard of.

    Not that I’ll be able to watch it again any time soon, but still. Brilliantly crafted.
