Fascinating for those in the know
12 May 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As mentioned by another reviewer, you will not learn a lot from watching this doc but for those Anglophiles who worship the altar of British rock, this is a pretty good sample. You get the Stones doing "promo films" (a precursor to music videos) for "2000 Light Years from Home" and "Jumping Jack Flash." Then there's the Jimi Hendrix Experience. Jimi was born and raised in Seattle but his group is definitely part British rock. There's the end of Cream and the beginning of Blind Faith. Pink Floyd does it's trippy part, an arty bit that doesn't indicate it would later bookend the seventies with two of the decades biggest albums, "Dark Side of the Moon" and "The Wall." The film wraps with the Faces doing it's best-known song "Stay With Me." And it's the Faces, not Rod Stewart (though he is a part of the group) as another reviewer mentions, nor is that Micky Waller on drums (as another reviewer ill-informs) but rather the only Faces drummer ever, Kenney Jones. I'm really surprised this film hasn't been released to Blu-Ray yet. I saw a high- def version on the Sony HD network so you know a copy exists. Most likely it's the haggling of rights that is preventing this from a home video release.
