"A must have for the devoted Spike Jones and The City Slickers fan.
Not much is available on DVD for this crazy and creative band so buy this. You won't be sorry. Video and sound are excellent!
Until the Spike Jones video tapes Volumes 1 through 4 are transferred to DVD this DVD and the Colgate hour ones are the only ones available for now.
Buy and enjoy!"
A Spike essential!

"This long available on VHS title now on DVD is an excellent companion to the LEGEND set. It was made back in 1988, when George Rock, Billy Barty, Earl Bennett were still around of course, and originally lasted 3 hours, what a shame the extra footage could not have been reinstated in this version. But,as it is, the content is a fascinating account of the unique crazy band-leader with contributions from his co-workers and close family. Some home-movie is included and shows (albeit briefly) how colourful the City Slickers shows were. For a life-long admirer, (I started collecting SPIKE JONES 78s in the 1950s),this is definately a 'must have'. A 'slicker' production in fact."
