Lightining in a Bottle - a blues review and performance from Radio City with countless great artists (the specials section of the DVD has Warren & Greg)

Standing in the Shadows of Motown - great movie about the Funk Brothers; the group that backed up all the Motown hits

Soul Comes Home - a performance centered around Stax records and the Memphis sound

Sessions for Robert J - Clapton and a variety of great musicians recreate the whole catalog of Robert Johnson's released music in everything from a full band to solo work (maybe the best thing Clapton has ever done on DVD)

Martin Scorcese's Documentary about the blues. It's a multiple DVD thing but way cool.

Anyone ever see the movie FESTIVAL? Definitely one of my favorite music documentaries of all time. This was released in 1967, and it is about the Newport Folk Festival. Filmed in beautiful black and white, it features Bob Dylan, Joan Baez, Donovan, Peter Paul & Mary, Johnny Cash, Pete Seeger, Odetta, Buffy Saint Marie, Richard & Mimi Farina, Son House, Mississippi John Hurt, Howlin' Wolf, Butterfield Blues Band, and a slew of others. Whereas some of the performances last only a few seconds, others do go on for its entirety. However it's interestesting the entire way. And you do see Dylan's infamous electric performance of "Maggie's Farm."

I like how things have changed over the years since the early 60s. Styles of dress and hair look kind of funny. But in other ways things have remained the same like the enthusiasm of the music fans. After seeing this movie a few times I've decided to take a trip to this year's Newport Folk Festival, which is still happening after all these years.

Other favorite music films (documentaries):

DON'T LOOK BACK
THE LAST WALTZ
MESSAGE TO LOVE (Isle of Wight Festival 1970)
WOODSTOCK
GIMME SHELTER
GOT NO SHOES GOT NO BLUES (Unreleased film of the Texas Pop Festival)
LET IT BE
THE GRATEFUL DEAD MOVIE
RENALDO & CLARA (4 hour long Dylan ego trip)
NO NUKES

Just DON'T get "The Song Remains the Same". You will be disapointed.

I have a bit of a twist on the subject. I just saw an excellent movie that had a great soundtrack. Desperado had Antonio Banderas and Selma Hayek in it but the soundtrack was so good I bought it the next day. Mostly Mexican in its flavor it had Los Lobos, Santana, Link Wray, and the Latin Playboys among others.

Do you mean movies about music, or concert films?

I almost never watch concert videos or DVD's. They bore the heck out me. Your mileage may very.

If you liked Spinal Tap, you might like A Mighty Wind, sort of the same kind of thing (and with many of the same people), but based on the folk scene. I liked Rock Star, too, loosely based on the story of Rob Halford's split from Judas Priest and their subsequent hiring the singer from a Judas Priest tribute band to replace him. I can basicaly watch "The Wall" over and over again, too.

Obscure...

Quadrophenia...if you like the album, you'll like the movie...heavy British accents that are sometimes hard to decipher.

David Bowie short called Jamming for Blue Jean. He plays two different parts and this one is really good.

heart of gold (neil young)
rust never sleeps (neil young)
the band (the band)
festival express (the band, joplin, the dead, etc)

you can also rent dvd's of the dick cavett show. he often had on rock stars amongst the luminaries including jefferson airplane, hendrix, bowie, joplin, sly stone, etc. there's some pretty crazy stuff on some of these. less polished interviews than you find today. much less polished.

The Wall or Tommy are always a good time to watch that actually have stories. A little weird, but I enjoy them.

The Tom Dowd DVD is absolutely unbelievable for a documentary type thing.

Wow, I'm almost the 20th poster, after like 40 nominations, and this is the first recommendation for this:







"The blur is on purpose, folks"

"I was 'warned' before I went that Cafes and Coffeeshops are different things in Amsterdam. As it turns out, there’s no way you could mistake a coffeeshop for a place that serves coffee. The odor and clientele should be enough to clue in even the cluelessest foreigner.

"One thing I noticed was that many of the coffeeshops are blatant trademark violations."

"La Bamba", biopic about Richie Valens. Music by Los Lobos, Carlos Santana. "Walk the Line" biopic about Johnny Cash, one of the architects of rockabilly. "Ray", bio of Ray Charles (huge influence on rock'n'roll).

One of my favorites is "The Commitments." It's a great story about a band in Ireland rising out the Dublin music scene. As a musican myself, I could really relate to the trials and tribulations this band went through to break into their local music scene. Great movie...... I highly recommend it.
