Fantastic and Well done.
6 December 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The documentary is obviously of Jeff Lynne. It features stories from people he's previously worked with, and is an all around enjoyable film. Whether you're familiar with Jeff's music or not, the documentary is fun to watch. Jeff Lynne seems to have always gone under the radar in terms of the musical industry, because he really isn't trying to achieve fame or fortune. What he's doing is really what makes him happy. It's a shame there aren't more videos like this, and from what I hear, it is coming to DVD, and hopefully Blu-ray in very early 2013. Jeff Lynne really should be in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and this documentary just proves it. With all of the accomplishments Jeff Lynne has made, it's a wonder he isn't in there already.
