Atlantic Records: The House that Ahmet Built DVD

(PR) Rhino Entertainment will release AMERICAN MASTERS ATLANTIC RECORDS: THE HOUSE THAT AHMET BUILT on DVD June 12, 2007. The touching tribute features rare, private and classic clips, performances and studio sessions of Atlantic recording artists. The film is narrated by award-winning singer/actress Bette Midler.

For the last half-century, Ahmet Ertegun was hip-deep in R&B and Rock & Roll. AMERICAN MASTERS ATLANTIC RECORDS: THE HOUSE THAT AHMET BUILT follows Ertegun’s remarkable career and its impact on the evolution of the world’s most popular musical genres while offering an insider’s look at the recording industry, from its infancy to today. When the documentary premiered May 2 on PBS, the New York Times called it "compelling television" and the Los Angeles Times said the film “leaves you wanting more.”

Since Ertegun was such a prized raconteur, writer/director Susan Steinberg structured the film around a series of specially filmed conversations between Ertegun and some of the greatest names in rock, blues and jazz, including Robert Plant, Aretha Franklin, Bette Midler and the late Ray Charles. Artists who were also close personal friends, such as Mick Jagger, relived significant events from their mutual experiences for the film.
