I watched this one last night. Really enjoyed it!

The interviews with the two singers reminded me a lot of the Half Japanese documentary. Very entertaining

Hells bells.

I caught this on Channel 4 a couple of weeks ago - superb film.

I don't think anyone's mentioned Wattstax yet... wonderful film, restored for dvd release just a year or two ago.

It's a document of a moment in time in Los Angeles, not specifically the "story of Isaac Hayes", but it gets the job done & is well worth a couple hours of yer time.

I recently watched Runnin' Down a Dream, the story of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. It's a two disc set and watched the whole thing in one sitting. I don't listen to his music all that much anymore but the film reminded me how much I did listen to him back in the late 70s and early 80s. It's available on Netflix too if you don't want to buy it, which is where I got it from.

Does the Classic Albums series count?

Image

There are a lot of these and I've seen and bought as many as I can get my hands on. Even when it's an artist I wouldn't name as a favourite I still try to watch it.

They're really good. My highlights are Dark Side of the Moon, A Night at the Opera, Never Mind the Bollocks, Bat Out of Hell, Rumours, and the one up there to name but a few.

Very recommended.

they are both nice albums, hurt by the weight of becoming crate digger bait (zphage)

'The Band' and 'Electric Ladyland' are also very good in this series.

I enjoyed those, too, but the Hendrix one pissed me off in that they didn't even touch upon "1983"/"Moon, Turn The Tides" - the most fascinating part of the album to me, and the one where it would be especially interesting to hear isolated tracks... Apparently, there's an extended version of the dvd out now - but I don't know what the extensions comprise.

The Never Mind The Bollocks one was surprisingly interesting, too.

Sadly this is a bit of an amateurish disappointment - only a single too. Good for some Kevin Coyne footage, some Stack Waddy moments and a bit of Tractor but the production is sub-12 year old. Fair play to the guy for trying though I s'pose.

That describes every CD on the OZit label that I've heard, as well.

Too bad...
