Hugely entertaining (and also a little bit sad) documentary about the great Ginger Baker. See Ginger hold grudges over nothing for decades! See Ginger be incredibly bitter about almost everything! See Ginger actually break the film-maker's nose on camera!

He also decided that it would be a rewarding musical experience to travel Nigeria over land across the Sahara Desert - a journey that would lead him into a number of adventures. This film by Tony Palmer follows Baker's odyssey as he makes his journey and finally arrives in Nigeria to set up his studio, which wuold run successfully through the 70s as a facility for both local and Western...

"On Sunday November 5th 2006 John Lees' Barclay James Harvest's British tour reached London. Just one concert of thirteen shows (the biggest UK tour by any incarnation of BJH for fourteen years), founder members John Lees (guitar vocals), Woolly Wolstenholme (keyboards, mellotron, guitar, vocals), together with Craig Fletcher (bass), Kevin Whitehead (drums, percussion) and guest musicians had already performed six successful concerts, and were to play a further eight British concerts, many of which had...

I think Jeff Beck is one of the greatest guitarists of our time, but, he sure makes some really bad records these days.
Having said that, he really has not lost a thing as a guitarist since his great work that goes back a full 50 years!
This quite straight-forward release allows you to hear Jeff live, without any bullshit, with his great band, consisting of Tal Wilkenfeld (bass), Vinnie Colaiuta (drums), Jason Rebello (keyboards).
This has material from the beginning of his career up to the.

Obviously, this is limited in terms of what it can offer with just one hour of footage, but this is the only film footage that I know of of the real, original, fascinating 'no wave' era of downtown NYC, circa 1979. This is a dual-sided DVD in both NTSC...

I dunno. I always thought Big Brother got a bum rap. Were they the best San Francisco band? No. Were they the best musicians of that scene? No. But they were fun and joyous and genuinely psychedelic and whoever it was that dragged Janis away from them...

This very nice DVD spotlights the brief reign of this star-crossed, pivotal San Francisco psychedelic band, who were quite cool in a truly psychedelic, 1967 way, but who had the fortune of a star-singer as a integrated member of the band, and the mis-f...

I'm a huge Jack fan and I found this fascinating and wonderful, as it's from his early prime as a solo artist and just after his world-wide fame with Cream. But it is a documentary and not a concert film.
