Dig!

Some kind of monster

No direction home

What happened, Miss Simone?

Oil City Confidential

FGBFGB - 28 Jul 2020 18:06:24 (#3 of 98)

Ha! I was just about to post that.

There are a couple of Eagles and Rush documentaries that I found very watchable. Very boring bands (to me) but interesting stories.

Still have the Sam E Cooke to watch. Bound to be good.

Classic Albums. Also Rock Trees

The Anvil one is pretty good

One of the few that strayed from the usual BBC4 Friday night music doc template strayed so far it was actually brilliant -

Everybody in the Place - An Incomplete History of Britain 1984 -1992

In Search of Nic Jones.

Mostly because it is about Nic Jones.

And 'Theremin: An Electronic Odyssey', if it's musical enough.

Second vote for Anvil, its a great film.

The Dave Clark Five one where he says they were as big as the Beatles

Wendy James, Transvision Vamp, when she says she is going to be bigger than Kylie. What happened to Kylie?

All My Loving from about 1968 and its protracted multi-part sequel All You Need is Love from c1977 were dull. The first was a Where is Pop? thing, the second a supposed history of rackenrawl. Tediously postmodern in lacking a narrative voice.

Flight 666

The story of Iron Maiden's tour in which Bruce Dickinson (singer) flies them around in his own Boeing jet named Ed Force One

Think there are two versions, the documentary and the concerts

#14: I got the book of that. Its conclusion was that rackenrawl was on a laudable journey to get ever more clever, ever more virtuoso, and ever more prog. Mike Oldfield in particular, was to be the future.

ReverendBlueJeans - 29 Jul 2020 14:16:57 (#17 of 98)

Heh, heh.

CaptainBlack - 29 Jul 2020 14:21:28 (#18 of 98)

The timing of All You Need Is Love was rather unfortunate as some North London reprobates were proving the exact opposite at the time.

ReverendBlueJeans - 29 Jul 2020 14:24:02 (#19 of 98)

A quik check showed that I had misremembered All My Loving - it did have a narrator (Patrick Allen, no less). I do recall how, when All You Need is Love covered the 60s, it lifted a lot of interviews from All My Loving.

Many of Don Letts’s documentaries.

The skinhead one is especially good (apart from Gary fucking Bushell).
