Starring Robbie Coltrane, Maurice Roëves, Emma Thompson, Richard Wilson, Stuart McGugan, Jake D'arcy and Ron Donache.
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
The release also features 4 limited edition art card prints of John Bryne original paintings.

This was one of the best series ever produced by the BBC. It introduced Robbie Coltrane, Emma Thompson and Richard Wilson to TV audiences, and has great performances from everyone in the cast, as well as great songs. Coltrane's singing was done by the late Tam White. There is wonderful version of Love Hurts. Anyone who likes, let alone, loves rock 'n' roll should have this in their collection. I can now put my crumbling video recording to rest.
