I'd like to check out some more in-depth documentaries about various artists or types of music.  I've posted in this section because it doesn't have to be about prog bands.  Rock, jazz, metal, punk, electronic, hip-hop, or classical themed ones would most likely interest me.  I'll even take good biopic recommendations as well.

Here's a list of ones off the top of my head that I have seen:
- Electric Miles
- The Miles Davis Story
- American Hardcore
- The Decline of Western Civilization (Parts 1 and 2)
- Metal: A Headbangers Journey
- The Story Of Anvil
- Beyond The Lighted Stage
- Bird (biopic)
- The Nomi Song
- several of those "Classic Albums" specials
- A Bookshelf On Top Of The Sky: 12 Stories About John Zorn
- "The Score So Far.." (Dream Theater)
- Cannibal Corpse history (comes with Centuries of Torment DVD)
- Insurgentes (Steve Wilson doc)
- Jazz (by Ken Burns)

They don't have to be authorized, just entertaining. Smile

I think Woodstock's the best ever music documentary, have you seen it?

My favourite biopic is Martin Scorsese's No Direction Home (about Bob Dylan).

Yes, as embarrassing as it is, I haven't even seen the Woodstock doc.  I should definitely watch that someday.

I'll admit I'm not much of a Dylan fan, but I am a Scorsese fan.  Might keep that in mind too.  Didn't he also do some sort of Rolling Stones film in recent years?

I guess mockumentaries are cool too. LOL

Spinal Tap is a classic of the genre, and I remember enjoying Electric Apricot, which was a jam-band spoof.

 - Step Across The Border (1990) : a documentary about and with Fred Frith (and many others).
I've hardly seen another movie close to this one when coming to REALLY talk about music: not only the performances, working with other people, but also a glimpse on the everyday surrounding.

 - Dancing in the Streets (nineties) : a good TV show in a dozen episodes, that I still consider as one of the complete works about the history of Rock.

I will always cherish the "Judas!" moment where Bob goes on, "I don't believe you, you're a liar!" and then turns to his band and tells them to "play this one f**king loud," and it goes into the greatest performance of Like A Rolling Stone ever.

I'm glad they found that footage, my favorite live performance ever.

Good choice - an excellent interview with the man, only a couple of months before his death; the BBC were also given access to his video vaults & after they showed this interview on TV they followed it with 90 minutes of never before seen live footage.

As well as the BBC's Prog Rock Britannia and their Krautrock documentary, the BBC's Hawkwind documentary is also worth checking out. It's on Youtube in about 9 parts. Sadly Dave Brock didn't want to take part, because of a feud with Nik Turner.

It's an interesting (the southern rock) documentary, but were the Dixie Dregs unworthy of a single mention?  Thanks for posting it.  The Dregs were an important part of the Southern Rock thing, though less famous.  Too progressive I guess.  Fer shame.  They brought some bluegrass into the picture which I guess is a more middle country kind of thing, where my family hails from.  I am not from the deep south. We moved down here in '72.  Another band not mentioned, Sea Level.  But what the hell.  I guess you just have to focus on a few.  The Allman's had their great moments early on.

Agreed! I believe The Dixie Dregs are an important part of American prog history as well alongside Kansas.
Never heard of Sea Level though but thanks for the mention. Goose Creek Symphony is another one not mentioned.

There are probably not many Canned Heat fans around here, but nevertheless the documentary on Canned Heat is the most hilarious thing I have ever viewed. Fito, the drummer tells the most unbelievable road stories and trust me on this one...even if you dislike the music of Canned Heat, you should check this dvd out just for the comedy itself. I never realized that a rock band could have such bad luck. They were always getting into trouble with authorities. They were true misfits and had no stage presentation whatsoever. It's just pathetic and hilarious how they carried themselves. Blind Owl Wilson was one of the most unique harmonica players in this world. He emulated the sound of a horn section or a hammond organ when he backed the vocalist. His solo's were not appreciated by a mass following. Only between 66" to 70" were they noticed by the public at large. He is not on the list of usual suspects from the 60's.

isn't that Metal Evolution the series that pretty much skips anything to do with Black, Death or Doom Metal, pretty much the greater part of Metal of the past few decades or so? what a crock

The main reason why I got this is for the Prog Metal episode. Then again, they could have done episodes on Black, Death and Doom Metal er even Metalcore. Overall, I can't complain. The Shock Rock episode I liked a lot as well.

Tonight (or last night, I guess, since it's now after midnight) I attended a screening of "Romantic Warriors II: Rock in Opposition".  In attendance were:
Adele Schmidt - co-director
Mike Johnson - Thinking Plague/Hamster Theater
Dave Willey - Hamster Theater/Thinking Plague
also
Elaine Difalco - Thinking Plague
Mark Harris -
Thinking Plague/Hamster Theater

Pretty cool!  Sorry for everyone who missed it (which was pretty much everyone, cause there were at most 20 people there).
