Of All the Things: Dennis Lambert's Docu

September 22, 2008–Brooklyn born singer-songwriter-producer Dennis Lambert, who has written dozens of chart topping hits and whose songs and productions been nominated for 11 Grammy¬ís, returns to New York to perform a live show at Joe¬ís Pub and present OF ALL THE THINGS ¬ña new documentary which follows him on his first international tour 35 years after his debut solo album. The film will be shown in the Stranger Than Fiction series on October 14, 2008 at 8.00pm

Lambert, who began his career in the Borsht Belt in the Catskills Mountains, has undeniably contributed to the cannon of pop-music, rising to become on of the most prolific songwriters of his generation. Armed with his songbook including hits like Ain’t No Woman (Like the One I’ve Got), Rhinestone Cowboy, Don't Pull Your Love, Baby Come Back, One Tin Soldier and Nightshift Lambert will take the stage at Joe’s Pub for a special one-night-only showcase. There will be some sweet sounds coming down….

Lambert’s son Jody presents OF ALL THE THINGS which premiered at the 2008 SXSW Film Festival in Austin, Texas. The film tells the most unique comeback story of the year and won audience awards at the Sarasota, Nantucket and Palm Beach Film Festivals. The film profiles Lambert, one of the most successful and diverse songwriter/producers of the ‘70s and ‘80s, with chart-toppers in almost every genre of music. At one point in his career, four of his songs were simultaneously on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, a feat previously accomplished only by The Beatles.

Today, he¬ís a 60-year-old family man selling real estate in Florida. But it turns out his obscure 1972 solo album is huge¬Ö in the Philippines. A Filipino concert promoter has been begging Dennis to tour for decades, and in 2007 (thirty-five years after the release of his album) he finally agreed. OF ALL THE THINGS is a hilarious and touching pop/rock/country/R&B documentary that follows Dennis on his whirlwind tour as he rediscovers his passion for music — a two-week adventure that takes him from the comforts of Boca Raton, through the remote outer islands of the Philippines, to a sold-out show at Manila's famous Araneta Coliseum for thousands of fans he never knew he had. Some lives deserve an encore.

OF ALL THE THINGS is directed by Jody Lambert and produced by Taylor Williams.
