Excellent but Overlooked
13 April 2005 | by See all my reviews

Unfortunately this excellent documentary aired less than a month after the tragedy of 9/11 and was completely overlooked, and I don't recall VH1 making any effort to promote it. If you have a chance to watch the DVD or buy the box set soundtrack, it is well worth your time. It is an enormously entertaining documentary with great music and incredible interviews. It even deepened my respect for Snoop Dogg. The comprehensiveness of the documentary is what makes this worth the investment in time (I believe it's five hours): watch this and you feel like you've earned a PhD in music history. The producers and directors (including Quincy Jones) obviously approached this as a labor of love. Is there an Emmy category for documentaries??? This should have won a couple. Rare to find something so intelligent and yet so enjoyable at the same time.
