Eureka Entertainment to release LA BAMBA, the All-American rock to riches story of rock and roll legend Ritchie Valens starring Lou Diamond Phillips, on Blu-ray for the first time in the UK in a 30th Anniversary Digitally Restored Dual Format (Blu-ray & DVD) edition on 9 January 2017. The life of rock & roll legend Ritchie Valens bursts across the screen in the highly celebrated music-filled biopic La Bamba, starring Lou Diamond Phillips (Young Guns, Che) as the teenage sensation whose rise to fame was tragically cut short at the age of 17. Phillips gives an electrifying... performance as Valens, who has to contend with racial prejudice, a jealous brother (a stunningly intense Esai Morales, NYPD Blue, Caprica) and an overbearing mother, before his unique style of Latino-influenced rock & roll rockets him to fame, but sets him on the path for an unavoidable date with destiny. Featuring music from Grammy Award winning rock band Los Lobos, and also starring Elizabeth PeÃ±a (Jacob's Ladder, Down and Out in Beverly Hills), director Luis Valdez's La Bamba is an irresistibly toe-tapping depiction of the early days of American rock music, and the indelible influence one young man had upon it. Eureka Entertainment is proud to present the film on Blu-ray for the first time in the UK in a 30th Anniversary Digitally Restored Dual Format Edition.

Lou Diamond Phillips stars as Ritchie Valens in this musical biography of the Mexican-American boy who became a rock 'n' roll star at the age of 17. Beginning as a labourer in the plantations of rural California, Valens' success was such that he would eventually undertake a triumphant tour with the legendary Buddy Holly (Marshall Crenshaw) and The Big Bopper (Stephen Lee). The film traces his rise to stardom, his relationships with his family and his high school girlfriend Donna (Danielle von Zerneck), and culminates with the tragic plane crash which killed him in 1959.
