Bob Weir documentary on Netflix

Just saw this. It's called THE OTHER ONE. I enjoyed it quite a bit. Cheers -Don
I agree. I just watched it this week. Very interesting. I can also strongly recommend the Muscle Shoals documentary (among others) on Netflix.
The Muscle Shoals doc IS great, and also worth seeing is the one on Levon Helm (of The Band, for you youngsters), "Not In It For My Health".
I watched the Levon Helm documentary too. It was pretty good. I'm not a huge fan of the Band, so I didn't enjoy it as much, but it was interesting.

Last night, I watched "Our Vinyl Weighs a Ton" on Netflix - a documentary about Stone's Throw Records and Peanut Butter Wolf. I knew pretty much nothing about this guy or the label, but it was excellent. They work with really eclectic (and sometimes downright weird) acts. Started as an underground hip-hop label, but then expanded to include people like Mayer Hawthorne. Very good movie. Includes interviews with ?uestlove, Talib Kweli, Common, Kanye, etc.
By the way, I had also watched a good documentary on Duane Allman and the formation of the Allman Brothers Band, but it seems to have disappeared from Netflix. Keep your eyes open for it. It fits nicely with the Muscle Shoals film.
Seriously, Mateored? Maybe you have to be a musician to fully appreciate The Band. I've seen a lot of them starting with The Beach Boys (you laugh? They were great live!), Beatles, Stones, Kinks, Who, Hendrix, Cream, Jeff Beck, Doors, up through current ones, and The Band were BY FAR the best of them all. A few other guys who agree with me: Eric Clapton, George Harrison, Bob Dylan, T-Bone Burnett, Nick Lowe, Bonnie Raitt, John Hiatt, many, many others. They are to Rock 'n' Roll what Count Basie and Duke Ellington are to Jazz---pure class!
I enjoyed seeing "Who the F**K is Authur Fogel?", mainly because of the fascinating inside view of the business that I never really thought about. Lots of interviews with the man himself, Bono, Sting, Bowie, Madonna and others.

Another one I'd suggest is "Upside Down: The Creation Records Story", also for the inside perspective.
Mateored, you have my permission to continue not being a huge fan of the band. :)
Well, I agree with Bdp24 that the Beach Boys and the Band were great live. I think the Band's first two LP's stand up to anything done in that era.

I've got the Weir doc on my list, hope to see it soon. The Muscle Shoals film is definitely worth the watch. It takes a little while to get going but it is interesting.
Seriously, Bdp?

Thanks, Jdoris. : )

By the way - I located the Duane Allman documentary on Hulu. It's called "Song of the South: Duane Allman and the Rise of the Allman Brothers Band"
The Devil and Daniel Johnston !!!! One of my favorite documentaries.

I can't really listen to his voice , but I love the tribute album called the
Late Great Daniel Johnston Recovered. It's got many amazing bands covering his songs!
I love good music documentaries! I've seen the Daniel Johnston one too, and like it a lot. I'd appreciate some more recommendations! Here are some more:

• The Flaming Lips - The Fearless Freaks
• Marley
• I Am Trying to Break Your Heart: A Film About Wilco

Another excellent movie that's a little different is "Rockers." Described in Wikipedia as: "Rockers is a 1978 Jamaican film by Theodoros Bafaloukos. Several popular reggae artists star in the movie, including Leroy "Horsemouth" Wallace, Burning Spear, Gregory Isaacs, Big Youth, Dillinger, and Jacob Miller.
Rockers was originally intended to be a documentary but blossomed into a full-length feature showing the reggae culture at its peak.[1] With a budget of JA$500,000, the film was completed in two months.

I loved that one. In English with English subtitles ; )
I like the doc on the Kings of Lion. Did you google best documentaries music on Netflix? I got two nice lists. Top 13 and top 25
The Band were the antidote to all the crappy hippie bands and psychedelic hogwash and excess of the late 60's/early 70's.
Okay, upon reflection, I take your (plural) point and admit to deserving it. How embarrassing! But lemme 'splain: I was actually startled to see the sentiment of not being a huge fan of The Band in print. Where I come from, The Band are so significant in the pantheon of Pop Music makers and history, that to not be a, if not huge, then at least not declared so, fan of them is akin to a Classical music person saying they are not a huge fan of Bach, Beethoven, and Mozart. Hope I'm not compounding my error in judgment fellas!
Watched "The Other One" (Weir) the other day--nicely done. A good look at the man and little bit different perspective on the band.
BDP - I have some strong musical opinions myself. For me, the significant bands include the Velvet Underground, Husker Du, The Replacements, Pavement, early Red Hot Chili Peppers and The Dead.

On the flip side, I can't stand The Eagles, Elton John, Queen, cool jazz, most prog rock, 80s hair bands, any RHCP after 1990, any REM after 1987, and almost anything that's been on the top-100 chart in the last 15 years.

I can argue these point vehemently if I wanted to. But I realize that those are just opinions and that a lot of people don't agree with me or just don't care. And they are 100% right.

Anyway, no worries, man. I have lots of unpopular opinions that I usually keep to myself or reserve for close friends.
I just watched "Every Everything," the documentary about Grant Hart (most famously of Husker Du). He's become a little bitter (largely about Bob Mould still) and a tad pompous, but he's clearly very intelligent and an interesting guy, and the movie turned me on to his solo records, which I had never really listened to. It turns out he's done some really good work and played some beautiful songs since Husker Du.

On the other hand, it also caused me to go back and listen to a bunch of H-D records again. They still sound great to me. Grant and Bob wrote some great songs (and just wailed on their instruments in the greatest way).

If you're a Husker Du fan, definitely check it out.
manterored, thanks for the heads up on grant hart documentary--i've always regarded him as one of the great unsung songwriters. you'd probably dig the big star documentary, nothing can hurt you, which is now on netflix. if nothing else it shows chris bell was ever bit chilton's peer
Yep - I watched that Big Star doc last week. (I'm on a music documentary bender these days). I agree - it opened my eyes to Chris Bell.

wrt Husker Du, Grant Hart never really got his due.
I love music related documentaries I've watched most if not all the ones mentioned in this thread and enjoyed them all. Another one that I recently watched and found very interesting was David Bromberg: Unsung Treasure on amazon prime instant streaming. Sound City is another good one about the famous recording studio where many classic rock albums were recorded
checkout "Wrecking Crew" on Netflix. they were the crack session players that did all the great soul, pop, r&b hits of the 60's & 70's & even Beach Boys studio work at Brian Wilson's request. From Mamas & Poppas to Byrds they were it. highly recommended!
Pehare, THANKS. Was aware of this movie being made. Did not know it was available on Netflix. Very much anticipated. Thanks again.
