Docs That Rock

The obligatory CSNY mention

Anyone writing about music has to be a natural curator – there is no way to listen to, much less write about, 30,000 albums per year – and that’s just the pop market. I have no stats on annual DVD and music doc releases but I’m sure the totals are daunting.

So on this blog, I’m trying to make an effort to write about only things that spark my interest, no matter the box office implications. (Watch for a post on barbershop music soon!) However, blog style seems to dictate that I do a little bit of commenting on major music docs of note so here goes.

I’m not the world’s biggest CSN&Y fan (only like Neil Young solo and Graham Nash’s photography collection) but their 2006 reunion flick, CSNY: Deja Vu is coming out today in limited release. It’s a combination of music and antiwar agitprop directed by the multi-faceted Young himself. Here’s what’s cool: it will be on pay TV and Netflix’s Watch Instantly web streaming service day and date of release. I’ll try to find data to write a follow up post of how the experiment fared. Trailer below.
