Sammy In Concert? This is: Sammy in B&W (low-fi)
Allan J. Krueger | Grosse Pointe Woods, MI United States | 08/17/2007
(2 out of 5 stars)

"I loved SDJ and saw him in concert several times in the 1970s. That is what I thought I was ordering, Sammy IN CONCERT. This DVD is a collection of B&W performances from his youth. I would not be disgruntled if I felt as though the product was adequately described on Amazon."
