«На город опускались летние сумерки. Из дверей бильярдной, где мягко постукивали шары, вышли трое молодых мексиканцев подышать теплым вечерним воздухом, а заодно поглядеть на мир. Они то лениво переговаривались, то молча смотрели, как по горячему асфальту, словно черные пантеры, скользят лимузины или, разбрасывая громы и молнии, как грозовая туча, проносятся трамваи, затихая вдали. – Эх, – вздохнул Мартинес, самый молодой и самый печальный из троих. – Чудесный вечер, а, ребята?

"A mighty achievement. Thank you." John Lennon"...interviews, backstage footage and amazing performances that explore the prejudice and commercialistion of pop" Time Out"...A must for serious music aficionados." Jeffery Sisk In TuneMusic Hall, as a description, means exactly what it says. A hall, usually at the back of a tavern or pub, in which music was performed by local entertainers for financial gain. It is thus the earliest example of a popular music industry. In a sense, through all its manifestations, music hall or vaudeville or variety has remained true to this original description. Thus, the film begins and ends in Las Vegas (with Judy Garland), a palace of varieties to end all palaces of variety. En route, we travel via London's Palace Theatre, the Palladium and the Windmill.
"A mighty achievement. Thank you." John Lennon"...An astute, fine-tooth-combing through popular music in all its hues and ages." Linda Laban Country music was, originally, home-made music. It described the births, marriages and deaths that happened in every community. It celebrated love, just as it bemoaned the ill-fortune that came to every man or woman. It was music with which all felt they could identify. As such, it occupied a unique place in white culture. The music was not originally manufactured, as in Tin Pan Alley, nor originally sophisticated and this episode describes how a grotesque change came about. Finally, we will be backstage at the Grand Ole Opry during one of its regular nationwide broadcasts, with a blessing to finish from Grand Ole Gospel Time.

"A mighty achievement. Thank you."John Lennon"...a monumental achievement that has influenced every music documentary since" New Classics For most of its history, popular music has rarely been that which most people like. Jazz, for instance, has always been a minority interest. But in the era which was dominated by swing, the music and its popularity were equally matched. White musicians became bored with the asinine popular music they were expected to play, music pumped out by Tin Pan Alley, and tried to emulate the style and freedom of their black counterparts. Most of them were too intelligent as musicians to indulge in mere imitation. What they created was the first white music based on black music which was not stolen from black music.
"A mighty achievement. Thank you." John Lennon "A treasure trove for music lovers..." Giant Magazine In the late forties, white record companies labelled commercial black music "race music". Eventually, Jerry Wexler, then working at Billboard magazine as a reporter, thought of the phrase "rhythm and blues" and it caught on. Before long, numerous other descriptions appeared - Motown, the Philadelphia Sound, Soul - but all had in common that the music expressed the rising aspirations of the ghetto. Meanwhile, a curious imitation of black gospel appeared called white gospel And among those who loved the sound were two remarkable men; one a record producer, Sam Phillips, who wanted to create a sound which had the discipline of white gospel but with the abandon of black rhythm and blues; the other was Elvis Presley.
