Humpty Dancing

Buy Digital Underground: Raw Uncut on DVD.

Released by Music Video Distributors, this documentary makes an argument that the Bay Area novelty band the Digital Underground -- best known for the single "The Humpty Dance" -- were actually quite a bit more important than they initially seemed, via their use of samples, costumes and made-up slang words. The documentary includes plenty of concert footage, mostly shot on VHS and lacking in quality. The disc includes a hoard of extras including videos, interviews and other footage.
