1964 concert film released by American International Pictures. Held at the Santa Monica Civic Auditorium on October 28 and 29, 1964. 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”.

Whether you were alive in '64 or not, this document offers a chance to evaluate what came before. Who set the bar? What made the girls scream? Where are we now compared to then? The film is a dated juggernaut. We are only young once and a few were luckier than others. As Michael Herrington observes, James Brown was a musical pickpocket, an original thief of hearts!
