Best of the Sixties,
This review is from: Mike Douglas - Moments & Memories (DVD)
There's some stellar material on this disc. We see a complete song performance of the Stones in their prime, a youthful rocking Mick and a harmonica playing Brian, doing Buddy Holly's Not Fade Away. There's the fabled hosting of the show by John and Yoko, with a lovely rendition of Imagine by John, who then joins with Chuck Berry in Johnny B. Goode. A two year old Tiger Woods shows his precocious skill, flanked by Bob Hope and Jimmy Stewart. Great clips of Alfred Hitchcock, MLK, Alex Haley; Rodney Dangerfield; it's a huge list of performers and prominent men and women who really made a difference, in marked contrast to the People Magazine celebrity, designer fashion, can't-write-or-play-but-is-a good-dancer present day line up of those in the public eye.
Mike Douglas was a great guy; calm, warm, hip, open-minded, aware of what really mattered in his day. This PBS special is a wonderful testimonial to him and his times; perhaps they'll come again, who knows. At the moment it's looking fairly promising!
