L to R standing: Ron Armstrong, Bill Wyman, Keith Richards, Earl Steely (Misfits), Mick Jagger, Joey Paige (“Shindig” regular), Charlie Watts, Bob Mosley and Eddie Dunn (both Misfits).”“L to R kneeling: Joel Scott Hill, (later Canned Heat and Flying Burrito Brothers), unknown press photographer, Harold Kirby (Joel’s bassist, now deceased; by the way, Willie Kellogg played with Joel but was packing his drums).
On Nov. 1, 1964, the Rolling Stones, fresh off of taping “The T.A.M.I. Show” (where the upstart Brits were upstaged by James Brown), made their first San Diego appearance, at Balboa Bowl (now Starlight Bowl).
Also performing that night were locals Joel Scott Hill & the Invaders (also known as the Strangers), The Misfits and Rosie and the Originals. Downtown record-shop owner Danny Milsap, who promoted the concert, paid the Stones $400, he recalled in a 1998 retrospective in the San Diego Reader: “I remember paying Rosie and the Originals $500!”
Hitmaker (“Angel Baby”) and future Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Rosie Hamlin and company didn’t stick around for the backstage photo, but Misfits drummer Ron Armstrong identifies who did.

The T.A.M.I. Show is a 1964 concert film, released by American International Pictures. It includes performances by numerous popular rock and roll and R&B musicians from the United States and England. It was shot with TV cameras by director Steve Binder and his crew from The Steve Allen Show, and was the second of a small handful of productions to be recorded in Electronovision – one of the first high-definition video cameras that captured somewhere between 1000-1100 lines at 25fps. Then, via kinescope recording, it was converted to film with sufficient enhanced resolution to allow big-screen enlargement.
The concert was held at the Santa Monica Civic Auditorium on October 28 and 29, 1964. Free tickets were distributed to local high school students. Jan and Dean emceed the event and performed its theme song, “Here They Come (From All Over the World)”. Jack Nitzsche was the show’s music director. The acronym “T.A.M.I.” was used inconsistently in the show’s publicity to mean both Teenage Awards Music International and Teen Age Music International. The best footage from each of the two concert dates was edited into the film, which was released on December 29, 1964.
The T.A.M.I. Show is particularly well known for James Brown’s performance, which features his legendary dance moves and remarkable energy. In interviews, Keith Richards of The Rolling Stones has claimed that choosing to follow Brown & The Famous Flames was the biggest mistake of their careers, because no matter how well they performed, they could not top him. In a web-published interview,
Binder takes credit for persuading the Stones to follow James Brown, and serve as the centerpiece for the grand finale where all the performers dance together onstage. In addition, throughout the film, were numerous go-go dancers in the background or beside the performers. Among them were a very young Toni Basil and Teri Garr. It also featured The Supremes performing three back-to-back #1 singles, signaling their reign as the most successful girl group of that era. Diana Ross would go on to work with the director Steve Binder on several of her television specials including her first solo television special and more importantly her iconic Central Park concert, Live from New York Worldwide: For One and for All.

The film was shown unedited and in its entirety on cable television in Canada in 1984 (20th anniversary of its release), on the First Choice Network. However, there has never been an authorized home video release of the film in any format until the authorized DVD release in March 2010, though bootlegs have abounded. (A DVD release of the complete film by First Look Studios was planned for 2007, but subsequently withdrawn.) Also, because of a rights dispute, the footage of The Beach Boys’ performance was deleted from all prints made after the movie’s brief initial theatrical run, and is therefore absent from most of the bootlegs. All of the four Beach Boys tunes eventually surfaced on DVD in Sights and Sounds of Summer, a special CD/DVD edition of Sounds of Summer: The Very Best of The Beach Boys.
In 2006, The T.A.M.I. Show was named to the National Film Registry by the U.S. Library of Congress. Dick Clark Productions acquired ownership of the concert film. On March 23 2010, Shout! Factory released the full show on a restored, digitally remastered and fully authorized DVD.
A sequel, 1966′s The Big T.N.T. Show, was produced by the same executive producer, Henry G. Saperstein.
Here’s a rare ticket from that show both front and back.
