Phil in LA : 7/1/2020 11:53 pm : link
there are more and more about all the different recording hot spots, and session people of the last 60 years or so.
That is one of the best music documentaries I've ever seen.

I love all the Duane Allman sotries, and I had not known that Traffic and Jimmy Cliff had recorded there. "Sometimes I Feel So Uninspired" and ""Sitting Here In Limbo are two of my favorite songs from those artists. Great stuff!
That's a great documentary

Three more:

Rhythm, Country and Blues about the music business in Nashville and Memphis. How they fed each other. It makes the point that the white/black thing meant less to the musicians than it did to the audience.

Also, The Wrecking Crew, about LA studio musicians in the 1960s. Lots and lots of hit records and stories about how they were made featured.

And lastly Standing in the Shadows of Motown. About Detroit musicians in the 1960s. And a modern day reunion thirty some years later.

Watched two great docs in the last week regarding music

"After the Crash" about Allman Bros Band, and Clive Davis...about Clive Davis. Both were great.

Still, and I probably mention this every time a thread comes up on music documentaries here, if you haven't seen Oil City Confidential, about a relatively unknown band called Dr. Feelgood out of Canvey Island in Great Britain. It's the third film in a trilogy by Julien Temple focusing on the 1070's British rock and roll bands he considered important:

The Filth And The Fury (The Sex Pistols)
The Future Is Unwritten (Joe Strummer / The Clash)
Oil City Confidential (Dr. Feelgood)

If you haven't seen it, it's incendiary.
Lynyrd Skynyrd Documentary

Just watched Gone with the Wind: The Remarkable Rise and Tragic Fall of Lynyrd Skynyrd

Lots of great stuff in it. Can't believe they wrote Freebird in about 20 minutes.

the Musicians Hall of Fame is this incredible small museum focused on the session musicians and small recording studios that fueled the growth of R&B, rockabilly and rock and roll. I didn't realize how much the sound of a record was both the recording studio and the session musicians who played out of the studios. Also shocking was how crappy some of the instruments that were used to make iconic albums.

The museum is arranged by the recording studio or region. Session musicians (and some stars) instruments are grouped within the studios they played out of.

I wasn't sure how much to expect, but it was really an awesome experience for someone like me who was weaned on rock and roll.
