Coast To Coast (1986)

Lenny Henry starred as Scouse DJ Ritchie Lee who teams up with American John Carloff (John Shea) to start a mobile soul disco after converting an old ice cream van.

The soundtrack was absolutely superb and featured Marvin Gaye, The Four Tops, Edwin Starr, Junior Walker & The Allstars, Dobie Gray, The Contours, Barrett Strong, The Elgins, Gladys Knight, The Miracles, The Marvelettes, Brenda Holloway and others.

The prohibitive cost of obtaining release rights for such a smorgasbord of soul classics means the film has never been commercially released on DVD or video.
