Bucks Burnett Presents

Sunday Sept 25th at 6 PM VideoFest presents


In 1992 Dallasite Bucks Burnett began videotaping interviews with rock stars and collectors for a documentary about the 8 track tape. What was intended as a 1-2 year project became a 19 year odyssey; the documentary, Spinal Tape, will wrap and be released by Burnett in 2012 on the 20th anniversary of its conception through Burnett’s Eight Track Museum. Over 40 musicians granted interviews for the project, including Jimmy Page, Tiny Tim, Talking Heads, and Jim Dandy of Black Oak Arkansas. This special Preview Edition will be the first public showing of the material.


The late Tiny Tim enjoyed a rich Dallas history, and was managed by Bucks Burnett from 1982 until his death in 1996. This first ever documentary about Tiny Tim centers around a house concert given by Tiny at the Lakewood residence of Paul and Tammy Gore on July 4, 1994. The live, one take performance showcases obscure patriotic songs and over the top rants about America by Mr. Tim, concluding with a casual interview about all things patriotic. This will be the first public showing of the performance.

Bucks Burnett’s opinion of the deletion of the word ‘cassette’ from its Oxford Dictionary (concise edition) has now made it to TIME magazine.
