Product Description

Join Toni Tennille and Daryl Dragon for some funky Dixieland in this 1978 TV special from the heart of the French Quarter in New Orleans.

This was the Captain & Tennille’s first of three television specials following their weekly variety show and it found them completely in their element as the show focused on what they loved most and did best—MUSIC! Guest stars include John Byner, Hal Linden (Barney Miller) and the legendary Fats Domino.

Songs include Black Water, Can’t Help Lovin’ That Man, You Never Done It Like That, I’m On My Way, Walking to New Orleans, I’m Ready and more!

Following the conclusion of their weekly television series, Captain and Tennille (Daryl Dragon and Toni Tennille) headed to New Orleans in 1978 for a 50-minute television special simply brimming with Dixieland, ragtime, jazz, blues, and pop music. Guest star John Byner brings a dose of comic relief to the special while musical guests Hal Linden (Barney Miller) and jazz legend Fats Domino give great performances both individually and in collaboration with Toni and Daryl . Hal Linden jams on the clarinet with Murphy Campo and the Jazz Saints, joins forces with Toni and the Captain on a spirited rendition of "Dr. Jazz," and then reveals a bit of his Broadway background with the vocal ballad "Goodbye Girl." Later in the show, Fats Domino delivers a classic performance of "Walking to New Orleans" and then Daryl fulfills a life-long dream jamming on the piano with his inspiration Fats Domino on "I'm Ready." Notable performances by Toni include "Can't Help Lovin' That Man of Mine" and "Black Water." Add a couple silly skits with John Byner, including one where Darryl officially lays to rest his captain's hat, Captain and Tennille's popular "You Never Done it Like That" and "I'm On My Way," and a street parade through town and that wraps up 50-minutes of jazz, blues, and pop fun with Captain and Tennille. Sound options include stereo, the original mono, digital 5.0 surround, and optional 2007 commentary by Toni Tennille and Daryl Dragon. --Tami Horiuchi

Captain & Tennille have been our favorites for a lot of years, and since they don't perform anymore, it is so nice to have them talking and singing and touring New Orleans. It is a nice clear video and I enjoy watching it. They are a fun couple, and her voice is the best!

Fantastic music, Toni Tennille's effervesence and great guests light up the banks of the Mississippi as they roll through New Orleans.
This 1978 special was the first of three done by the Captain and Tennille after they ended their variety show.

There are a couple of goofy skits, but this is mostly music, and that's a good thing because they are both so very talented.

Performances:
"Black Water" - C&T with her sisters
"Dr. Jazz" - C&T with Hal Linden and Murphy Campo and the Jazz Saints
"Goodbye Girl" - Hal Linden (beautiful scenery as it is performed on the Natchez Steam Paddler)
"Can't Help Lovin' That Man" - Toni Tennille (Performed on the grounds of a gorgeous plantation. She is utterly flawless on this. A stunning performance)
"You Never Done It Like That" - C&T performed at Rosie's Nightclub (song is great; the crowd shots are so funny)
"I'm On My Way" - C&T at Rosie's
"Walkin' to New Orleans" - Fats Domino (Fantastic)
"I'm Ready" - Fats Domino and the Captain (this is a phenomenal number both playing boogie piano...fantastic!)
"Street Parade" - C&T and guests

Their guests are John Byner, Tennille's sisters, Fats Domino and Hal Linden who is an absolute revelation. He has a beautiful voice and he plays jazz clarinet on a number with Murphy Campo and the Jazz Saints that is fantastic. What a talented man!!

Great sound and quality. This is a must for anyone who is a C&T fan, loved their variety show or just appreciates really good music-this offers a great variety of that.
