BASIN STREET REVIEW - DVD-R

In 1955 Ben Frye produced a television series, Harlem Variety Review, and then cobbled several films together from that material. Basin Street Review features a galaxy of top black stars. Lionel Hampton kicks things off on the vibes with "Ding Dong Baby." There are also numbers from Sarah Vaughn, Martha Davis, Amos Milburn, Faye Adams, and the Clovers. Cab Calloway swings with the "Calloway Boogie" and Cole and Atkins do a song and dance routine.

To top things off, Nipsy Russell and Mantan Moreland conspire to drum up some laughs. Hosted by Willie Bryant. Also available from SWV: Rhythm & Blues Review and Rock and Roll Review.
-Eric Schaefer, exploitation film historian
