Format: DVD
Beat Beat Beat - not to be confused with the German TV show Beat Club (which was a staged music show) - was the late 1960s version of American Bandstand broadcast in Frankfurt Germany. Teens sat in the stands or danced which current pop stars performed on stage. Most of the bands played live while the solo vocalists lip-synched their hits to a recording. The artists who appeared were often British pop stars with a few American artists who became bigger in the UK than in the US. The show ran for 26 episodes from 1966 through 1969 and all were recorded and archived in the German TV archives.

To my knowledge, this is the first time performances from these shows are being issued on home video - at least in the US. While some performers are big names worldwide, others had success only on the east side of the Atlantic Ocean.

This DVD is one of three "Best of" volumes released in the US from Music Video Distributors. It is the second shortest one -at only 25 minutes - with nine songs shown in crisp black and white images. This isn't "American Bandstand" or even Britain's "Ready Steady Go" since the German teens don't smile when they dance and usually sit stone-faced while watching the performers. The highlight here comes in the middle with three songs performed live by The Searchers. Even better "live" performances are the three songs by The Tremeloes, but the sound on these is really distorted, which is a shame. The one song by the lesser-known group, The Smoke, is all out psychedelic with lots of Jimi Hendrix guitar riffs. The song - "My Friend Jack" - was apparently banned in the UK. Again, the words are hard to decipher. Two songs by The Move help fill out the program.
