This documentary is a bit of a disappointment. I was hoping for a more serious look at the music business and some insight into the lives of the musicians that produced the music of Elvis Presley and the Rolling Stones. But, instead we are treated to a small bit of footage from the old MTV concert. It is also painfully obvious that the people involved in making the documentary don't know much about the music industry. There is a lack of details about who produced the music, the artists, and the money that went into the making of the songs. But, at least there are interviews with some of the people who actually did produce the music. There is also a lot of footage of Elvis Presley performing his music live in his prime. It is nice to see him perform, but it is not very interesting. And, the DVD also contains a few other videos that might be of interest. However, the people who produced the documentary should have used a more professional camera, since the music is not very good. It looks as if the people involved in making the documentary don't know much about music production.

There is no other movie that I've seen that really captures the tension and excitement of a live concert. While many of the people interviewed here are mostly not even musicians, they do a great job at telling the story of how they got to where they are today. While I will not say that this is a documentary of the best kind, I will say that it is a very interesting story and I enjoyed it immensely. It was definitely a great tour, and the people who were on the front lines were as excited about it as the rest of the audience. This documentary is a must-see.

I don't remember the first time I heard about this film, but I've seen it many times since. It is one of the greatest documentaries I have ever seen. It is a brilliant film that shows the history of psychedelic drug use and the culture that grew out of it. It is not a documentary, but a documentary that also shows how much of a cultural phenomenon psychedelic drug use is, even if it wasn't actually the original intent of the drug. It is also a documentary about the art and creativity that comes from the art and creativity of the artists that were experimenting with the drugs. If you liked documentaries like "Pi" or "Watership Down" you will like this film. The documentary has a great story and the information is presented in a very straightforward way. It is also very entertaining, and the film doesn't go on for long. The film also has a lot of interesting interviews and footage, and it doesn't go on very long. This film is not meant to be a documentary, but a documentary that also shows how psychedelic drug use has changed over time. I highly recommend this film to anyone who likes documentaries or art films, or to anyone who is interested in the art of the world's psychedelic drug culture. This film is the kind of documentary that is always enjoyable to watch.

The film is an amazing look at the life of a legendary blues guitarist and singer who lived until the age of 80, but has made no public comment about his health and wellbeing. The film starts with Lightfoot's birth and early years, from his childhood in Jamaica, to his first break with the blues and then his move to the west coast of the US. There is a lot of interesting footage from that time, such as how he was able to work with his own guitar, and the role that his mother played in his childhood. He also talks about his musical career and the influence that his music had on him. It is also interesting to hear about how Lightfoot's music influenced a lot of other musicians in the 1970s and 1980s, including John Lee Hooker, Chuck Berry, and Buddy Guy. A lot of the interviews are very funny, with Lightfoot himself very funny as well. But the documentary has a lot of very poignant moments as well. The ones that stand out the most are when Lightfoot talks about his death in a wheelchair, and how he had to give up playing the blues, because of his wife's illness. Another interesting point is how Lightfoot's wife (and Lightfoot himself) wanted to do a tribute concert to him, but couldn't. But Lightfoot did an interview with the band in front of the audience and then said "I want to say, I am in pain, and I am glad that I am not playing anymore." It is a very moving moment, and it was very moving to see him and the band and the fans in the audience. I would also like to mention the interview with the great blues guitarist and songwriter Buddy Guy. I found him to be a very interesting and amusing interview subject, and he is also interviewed by Lightfoot. The two have a very interesting conversation about his playing days, and how he has changed as a person. This is a very interesting documentary, and it is a great insight into the life of a legendary figure, but it is also a very sad and emotional documentary as well. It is a great film, but I would not recommend it to people who are afraid of losing their own health. It is a very moving film, but it is also a very sad documentary.

A very interesting film. It's really hard to understand what some of the people that produced it are thinking. I really have no idea. It's really interesting how some people, some musicians, some producers, all of them seem to have the same idea of what's important. I don't know if this is really true, but there are so many different people in this film that I have a hard time really understanding what the point of it all is. There's a really good documentary about some of the musicians that are in this film and I think that's really cool. I'm really looking forward to seeing some more documentaries about some of the people in this film.

I went to see this movie with some friends who loved the music, but it didn't seem to capture my interest. I liked the film more when I had the chance to see it again. The music is great and the stories are interesting. I really do like the documentary style. It really makes the movie stand out. If you're not into the music, it might not be the right movie for you. If you're into the music, it's probably the right movie for you.

I really enjoyed this documentary. It was a beautiful story about a man who was very lucky to be alive and the search for his son. The film was very informative. There was no preaching. There was no forced comedy. I would recommend this documentary to anyone. This is a must see.

It is a pity that so many people are so blinded by the beauty of the soundtrack to this movie that they do not see the true nature of the music itself. The song "Leaving Las Vegas" is by far the best in the movie. It is the only one that I can find that is sung by the performers in a completely believable way. The song is not just "somebody singing" it is sung with such emotion and real emotion that it makes me cry. There is no way that the characters would not have felt the pain of this song. It is not some pop song or some teen rock song. It is the real thing. It is the real essence of the real life. The only other song I can think of is "I Will Follow" but I believe that is because the character sings it as well. If you are a fan of the band, listen to this movie and find out what it is really about.

I thought the documentary was great. The music is also good. The documentary gets into the mindset of people in the music industry, and what they go through. The people interviewed were amazing, and the movie really put it all into perspective. I highly recommend it. I think the movie really showed what it's like to be in the music industry. I recommend watching it, especially if you like music.

This documentary is amazing. It's about a singer who was born in 1930, and grew up in the South, and was the son of a black man who went to prison, but came back to the South to get his freedom, and was not released until the 70's. The music he sang was all over the South and at the time was unheard of. The films makers do a great job of portraying the music and how it was released. This is the story of a young man who did his best to get his freedom, but was not successful. He made a lot of mistakes, and was forced to go back to prison. The stories of the people who were involved in the music, and how they became famous are fascinating. The music he did, was not very good, but it was the music of his time, and it is amazing how he got it heard. He was not a very good singer, but he had a lot of talent. He was a man who had to fight to get his freedom. This is an amazing film. I recommend it to anyone who wants to learn more about the music of the South.

I found this documentary to be the most compelling, interesting, and at times painful experience I've had with a documentary. The documentary itself was both informative and enjoyable. While it is not a piece of art, it is a worthwhile watch. I highly recommend watching it.

This film is for the true fans of "The Beatles", and anyone else who is curious about the story of the birth of the "Beatles". The film is a journey through the history of the band, and the people who were associated with them. There is not a lot of information to be found in the film, so you have to be patient with it. But once you see the film, you will be amazed by the reality of what they had to endure and endure in their time, and the sacrifice they made to make their dream a reality. The film is not for the "average Joe", and it does not cover the period of time when the band was on the "Foolish" side of the street. There is a great deal of historical context, but I would suggest that you read the book "The Beatles: Their Lives, Their Times" by Peter Lewis. This book covers the time when the band was "on the Fools side of the street".

I had never heard of this documentary until I saw it on the History Channel. I thought it was interesting and had a lot of interesting stuff to it. I have to say that I am a bit disappointed in it. The documentary was very well made. The director did a great job and I thought the editing was very good. The majority of the information that the filmmakers had was really interesting. However, it seemed that the documentary was rather dull. I think that the filmmakers had a few too many subjects. Overall, it was a good documentary and I recommend it.

Very well done documentary about the making of "I'll be Home for Christmas." This documentary has a lot to offer, as it focuses on the creation of the original score, which was done by Al Mancini, who later became the director of "The Wiz," "The Goonies" and "Rocky Horror Picture Show." The documentary also focuses on the incredible work that was done in the studios of Columbia Records, which was home to some of the greatest artists of all time. There are so many great stories to tell here, and I am always looking for new documentaries. This documentary is definitely worth your time. I was lucky enough to be invited to the premiere of the documentary at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York, and I would highly recommend this documentary to anyone who is a fan of the music of the 50's and 60's.

Lately I've been watching a lot of documentaries and musicals, and I'm starting to find that the documentaries are mostly crap. This one is no exception. However, the musical aspects of the film are a lot of fun and really get the message across. It's also nice to see a film that is not made by a rock star or someone who thinks they are a rock star. I think this is a great documentary for people who want to see something different. Definitely worth a watch. 8/10

I found the film to be very moving. It was a great story about a person with no friends, a heroin addict and his father. The main character was very real and moving. I recommend this film to anyone who wants to see a story about someone who is depressed, addicted to heroin and has a father who is very in love with him. The film was very well made. The music in the film was good as well.

I really liked this movie, it was very interesting and the way it was put together was pretty amazing. I think it would have been a good movie if they had taken the time to make it better, but they didn't, so I can't really say it was a bad movie. The acting was good, the music was good, and the photography was great. I thought that the main character was a little weak, but I also think that if they would have taken the time to make it better it would have been a great movie. If you have not seen this movie yet, I highly recommend it.

This documentary was a well thought out and produced documentary. I would recommend it to anyone who is in the mood to see a documentary about rock and roll. It's not about the band itself, it's about the band and the music they made. I thought the documentary was really good and informative. I liked the history of the band. I also liked the interview with the band members and they did a good job of making me feel like I was there in the studio with the band. I also like the way the documentary showed the band members actually interacting with each other. It's nice to know that people actually thought the band was cool. I would definitely recommend this documentary to anyone.

This is a great documentary about Jimi Hendrix. It's a well written and well shot documentary that is very insightful. It's interesting to see how Hendrix's music was used by other musicians such as Led Zeppelin. Also, it shows the struggles that the people who made the albums had to go through with the production. It's very interesting to see how many people were involved in the making of this album and how much work they put into it. I also like the interviews with the people who worked on the recording of the album. It's interesting to see what the people who worked on this album had to go through.

As someone who's been in the music business for many years and even had a number of industry connections, I thought this film was very well done and so very informative. I'm a fan of David Bowie, and I think he's an incredible musician, and I've been following his career since I was a teenager, so it was very interesting to see him in this documentary. It was interesting to see how his music has evolved over time and also the transition from being a rock star to being an artist who doesn't necessarily need the fame, but needs to get the music out there. I think this is a very important movie to show people, because it shows that if you're passionate about something, it's possible to make a lot of money and be very successful at it. I think it's very important to tell the story of David Bowie, because it's something he's very passionate about, and it's something that he wanted to do, and I think he should be proud of his work and be proud of the people who worked with him on the music. It's really an important documentary to show, and I highly recommend it.

I watched this movie for the first time last night. I had a great time with it, and I would recommend it to everyone who is interested in music. My favorite song was "Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" by Metallica. I liked the way the movie was filmed, and I loved how the movie ended. I recommend this movie to anyone who loves music and likes a good story.

I don't think this film is perfect, but it is good. I was very impressed with the musical numbers. I liked the way they were shot, the lighting was great. I was also impressed with the cinematography, the filming angles and the color. The editing was good as well. I think it is a good film to watch. If you like John Lennon, you will like this film.

I have never seen this film, but I have to say that the musicians who have participated in this film are very talented. I was reminded of the work that they have done in the past in their past projects, but I would have to say that this film is a breath of fresh air. It is an interesting look into the musical career of James Lightfoot, and the people who are now involved with him. The film is also an interesting look into the life of the band that Lightfoot started, and the people who are now involved with him. It is not your typical film about a band. It is more of an insight into the life of Lightfoot, and it is a really good look into what it was like for him. It is a good documentary, and I would recommend it to anyone who is interested in the music that Lightfoot was involved in, or has heard of his music.

My favorite film is The Queen. This documentary about the Rolling Stones shows how an icon like Mick Jagger would have reacted to the world. Mick Jagger is a very human character and this documentary shows us his thoughts, emotions, and ideas about the world. He seems to be a very interesting person and I enjoyed watching this documentary. I was very moved by this documentary and I am glad that I was able to see it.

This film is an absolute must see. The movie is very well done and captures the emotion of the times in the 1960's. The soundtrack is very fitting as well. The acting is top notch and very accurate. This is an important movie for anyone interested in music. It also teaches people how to play the guitar and what is needed to make a great sound. It is also a great film for anyone interested in music.

This documentary is part of a series of films about the history of the Grateful Dead. It is really nice to see how the Dead first started and how they developed into what they are today. They have an amazing story, although it is a bit hard to follow at times. It is a bit slow at times but it is well worth seeing.

As someone who loved this album as a teenager, I was eager to see this documentary. I really enjoyed this film. It's not a documentary, it's a journey. I was really impressed with the subject matter, it's really a love letter to the music, and it's just amazing to see the life of this great musician, the songs are so amazing. I was really impressed by the way they got the music for the documentary, the way they brought together the band members, and all of the songs are so inspiring. I love this documentary, it's really great, I highly recommend it.

Lightfoot was a brilliant songwriter who worked on countless recordings before his death, including the celebrated album 'Tunnel Vision' and 'You're My Sunshine', the album that made him a star. In this documentary, he discusses how he wrote his songs, how he made his records and the drugs he used to cope with his depression. It's a great insight into a man who had so much talent. I recommend this documentary to anyone who wants to know more about a legend.

As a concert goer, I've always enjoyed this film. It was a lot of fun for me. I'm not a musician, but it was fun to see them play live. I hope to see them again some time. I think that the film is a great insight into the musicians life. I am a fan of Ritchie Valens and The Clash, and it's fun to see them play live. The film is an interesting look at the history of music and the people who play it. I give this film an 8/10.

This is a very well made documentary that shows a great deal of the life of Pete Seeger. This documentary shows how a huge talent was able to make himself known in his time, and how he was able to be able to help millions of people in a very short period of time. He was a true genius and should be recognized as such. This documentary shows him in his prime, and his work with the Baez group, and how he helped people, and how he was able to help millions. I feel that this is a very important film to be made. I feel that this film should be recognized for its work, and should be given the respect that it deserves. If you have seen this film, then you should see it, because it is truly a great film, and is well worth seeing.
