Releasing this on DVD would be so wonderful....please!

Rockapella's "Flat Tire", the Mint Julep's "Higher and Higher", and Ladysmith's African songs are just wonderful music.

It was also released on a broadcast quality Laserdisc (which I have).

I was one of the producers of this project and just wanted to let folks know that any DVD release is up to Elektra, the company that released it in the first place.

Okay, so Spike's intro and mock-tour of New York backstreet a cappella venues is a little hokey. Who cares!? I was incredibly lucky to see this program on TV about 12 years ago. It was my re-introduction to doo-wop and my first experience of contemporary a cappella pop music and Ladysmith Black Mombaza. From this, I went on to the Bobs and other groups, but this was the starting point. Rockapella's "Flat Tire", the Mint Julep's "Higher and Higher", and Ladysmith's African songs are just wonderful music. And a few years ago, I got to shake Jerry Lawson's hand at a Portland Summer Zoo concert - what a great moment!

Spike - or somebody: PLEASE release this wonderful video on DVD. Forget the extras and interviews and director commentary and all that behind the scenes stuff that drive up production costs. Just remaster and release it, so this wonderful program isn't lost to tape rot.

I chewed this bit of vocal sweetness for a decade. I saw it when first aired, and was enthralled. There were Rockapella's Flat Tires, a gaggle of doo wop legends in full glory, and the cute guys from Zulu, Africa too!(Ladysmith Black Mambazo) The soundtrack is awesome, but you have to see what goes on on-stage to understand the power of some of these groups. Spike Lee just does intros and keeps the focus is where it should be.. the A Cappella sweetness.

I too was fortunate enough to see this when it originally aired AND doubly fortunate to capture it on video. At the time I was in the midst of an 18 year career as a singing drummer. In an effort to recapture the inspiration this wonderful show gave me, I used Rockapella's "Zombie Jamboree" as my vocal warm up song for the remaining years of my career.

This music takes it back to the roots. Simply great!

I wish Spike would release it on DVD. My VHS is just about worn out!

A couple of years ago I wrote on Spike Lee's 40 Acres and a Mule website requesting info on a "Do It A Capella" DVD. I did not receive any response. Thanks for the writer who at LEAST suggested contacting Elecktra. I also remember the original airing of this program. Simply fantastic! Program should be rebroadcast for this younger generation. Maybe Spike or Elecktra can collaborate with PBS to do this. PBS is interested in preserving music history i.e., their oldie shows. Planning to order the VHS from the Amazon seller. Hope the video resolution and sound quality are worth the price.
