A good one on right now......Hail Hail Rock and Roll. Follows the making of a Chuck Berry tribute show, headed by Keith Richards. Good music, but unfortunately, Berry come off as an enormous *****.

Of course, I have to mention The Kids Are Alright and Dazed and Confused, didn't one of your local all-nighter theaters always run one of these movies in the dead of night, as well as Rocky Horror Halloween week????

I also have a copy of an old Rolling Stone 25 years of Rock and Roll hosted by Dennis Hopper that I really enjoy.

Mine would have to be : 1)Woodstock, obviously for the awesome music,but also for showing how nearly 500,000 people can live in peace and unity,and with so much optimism. 2)It Was Twenty Years Ago Today, This documentary was shown on TV appx' 30 years ago and documents the making of Sgt Pepper and the spirit and times of 1967, simply a great time in music history. 3) A Skin Too Few, A very open and touching documentary about the great Nick Drake,still brightening up our Northern Sky.


:cheers2 Bryter.

There was a Beatles documentary called The Complete Beatles. It's probably close to 25 years old. It was on video at the tiime, don't know if it has come to DVD, but it was really good, and is recomended viewing if you like the Beatles.

Unfortunately it has not though it should. Still only on VHS Amazon.com: The Compleat Beatles [VHS]: John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, Ringo Starr, Malcolm McDowell, Gerry Marsden, Allan Williams, Bill Harry, Tony Sheridan, Horst Fascher, Billy J. Kramer, Bob Wooler, Patrick Montgomery, Pamela Page

My favourite is the Classic album documentaries.
They do educate me plenty about music and how they produce their albums.

My favourites of those dvds.
