Product Description

Product Description

Great music, a superb cast and a fantastic dark and witty script took this 1987 multi-BAFTA winning series to number 82 in the BFI’s top TV programmes of all time – and made household names of its stars, Robbie Coltrane (Cracker) and future Oscar winner, Emma Thompson.

The series follows the fortunes of rock and roll band The Majestics – Scotland's very own heroes of the 1960s beat boom – who re-group to play a 25th anniversary tour. Despite the death of lead singer Jazza McGlone in a freak car crash, band manager Eddie Clockerty is still determined to re-create the Majestic's halcyon days. So, in his place, the group's manager Eddie Clockerty recruits Jazza’s less-than-enthusiastic younger brother Danny.

As the group performs in some of Scotland’s less salubrious clubs and pubs, it seems their personal disagreements and private tragedies will force the band to disintegrate. Is there any way the self-styled 'Kings of Rock and Roll’ can avoid a slow self-destruction and recapture their former glories?

The Tutti Frutti sleeve was designed from hand drawn paintings commissioned especially for the release by acclaimed Scottish artist John Byrne.

Finally the BBC has got its act together and released this magnificent series on DVD. It has never had an official release, even on tape. Rumours circulate about problems with copyright of the music, lost footage, and reluctant actors. Whatever it was they've sorted it and over 20 years on its finally here!

Written in only a few weeks in a shed next to the Tay by acclaimed painter and polymath John Byrne, the series follows the misadventures of ageing rockers, The Majestics, as they tour the backwaters of Scotland.

It will show up much of today's British TV. It took risks. It moved at a sedate pace, stretched out in its characterisations and revelled in great dialogue. Consider that in 1987 this and the Singing Detective were on our screens. Seen anything as good as that lately?

This was the first time that Emma Thompson came to my attention. I'm from the West of Scotland myself, and when I saw this performance I assumed the actress was from Glasgow. She carried the West End accent off so well. Coltrane is of course magnificent, along with Katie Murphy and Richard Wilson, and the rest of the cast is made up of many of the stalwarts we have seen as ever shuffling bit players in Scottish TV and theatre over the years.

Absolutely unmissable stuff.

At long last 'Tutti Frutti' is out on DVD and I can finally retire my off-air VHS recordings, which are nearly worn out. This is a terrific series - if you've never seen it, I envy you as you will have the pleasure of meeting Danny-Boy and Suzi for the first time. Not forgetting the fabulous Richard Wilson as band manager Eddie Clockerty. Maybe now people he meets in the street will once again ask him to say "Miss Tonerrrrrr!" as he calls for his secretary, instead of Victor Meldrew's "I don't belieeeve it!!".

The only disappointment - the relative lack of extras; just an interview with writer John Byrne and another with Emma Thompson (which turns out to be a contemporary appearance on Terry Wogan's chat show). Perfection would have been a commentary track with Coltraine, Thompson and Wilson, though the chances of getting them all together at the same time must be practically zero, so it's no real surprise we didn't get one. But that doesn't detract from the series itself, still one of the best things that BBC Scotland has ever done.

I watched this as a young twenty something when it first aired back in 1987 and had always harboured very fond views of it . I purchased the DVD with some trepidation worried that my memory may have oversold it to me and for the first episode and a half the slow pace (by today's standards)left me slightly deflated. However the series then hit its stride and the belly laughs came thick and fast mixed with moments of real sadness and beautiful poignancy.Some of the physical comedy in particular had tears of laughter rolling down my cheeks. Volcanic eruptions of anger from the various band members produce the best moments. The Majestics are a band that are ever only one barbed comment away from World War Three. All the actors are on the top of their game but special mention to Maurice Roeves as Vinny (more the fire man than the iron man of Scottish rock!) who comes up with the mother of all cataclysmic breakdowns at the end.Oh and Emma Thompson deserves praise for mastering a perfect Glasgow accent and looking so damn gorgeous.A five star must buy, it has not dated.

I still intend to keep my TDK tape of 20+ years but finally a dvd release of one of the best things the BBC ever did in the 80's.
Aging rock'n'rollers the Majestics are dusting themselves down for their Silver Jubilee tour when Big Jazza McGlone,their lead singer,is killed in a car crash.Step forward Jazza's younger brother Danny(Robbie Coltrane) whose personality is at odds with the band especially Maurice Roeves who is determined to preserve the band's leagacy at all costs and when Danny's old schoolfriend Suzy Kettles(Emma Thompson)turns up then so does the combustability of battling egos.
John Byrne's script is funny and beautifully judged with affection and cynacism in equal measure.The music is well done and the performances are magic with Roeves and Coltrane vying for top honours only for Richard Wilson to come along and steal it from underneath them as the dodgy Eddie Clockerty.
Delightful.

I watched Tutti Frutti on TV in the late 1980s. I taped the series on video. I bought the soundtrack on CD. Recently found the paperback book of it on-line. I haven't got the T shirt though. But this is just a terrific show which doesn't age a bit. It cracks me up, even when its tragic and no laughin' matter. A great script, full of brilliant one-liners. Top class performances by all the actors. The music is good too. How to turn the lives of over the hill Scots rock and rollers into pure gold, its just perfect alchemy.Buy it and live it.Don't miss it.

This was one of the funniest and fantastic series that I ever watched, I have been desperate for this to come out on DVD especially because I have worn my videos out watching and re-watching this fantastic mini series about the lives, loves, heartache and revenge (Kettles ex husband finally getting his own hell!)
All of these stories come together so well that you can't help being engrossed and desperate to see what happens next, so if you haven't watched this DO PLEASE cos you will love it!
I'm buying this and am desperate for August (the release date) to come.
