Where's the DVD?
21 December 2005 | by Katz5See all my reviews

I bought a VHS copy of this in 1988 and it's beginning to get worn from multiple viewings. (The same thing happened to my treasured VHS copy of "The Compleat Beatles," another excellent documentary). With all of the garbage on DVD, why can't these be issued? There must be some licensing tie-ups somewhere....at any rate, this Rolling Stone documentary is fantastic and will just get better with time. Jerry Garcia and George Harrison are featured in interviews--RIP, and some of their insights (especially Garcia's) are wonderful (and in the case of Garcia, damn funny). Neil Young, Joni Mitchell, George Clinton, David Byrne, Tina Turner and many others are interviewed and the clips are pure rock n roll. The Rock N Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland should get involved and get this thing on DVD--before the tape snaps on my VHS copy!
