Hold On, I'm Comin' - Sam & Dave

The 1966 Stax-Volt European Tour contains performance footage of the first major multi city tour of America's R&B superstars.

Superb performances by Sam & Dave and Otis Redding hypnotized the European kids again opening up new audiences for them and propelling them to stardom.

Features Booker T. and the MG's and The Mar-Keys.

Gives me chills every time I see Sam tell the crowd too "get on up!". It's like the European audience at the time had know idea what just hit them.
