Led Zeppelin

Year: 2006

Runtime: 01:32:29

As recent events have proven, Led Zeppelin continues to be one of the biggest bands of all time. Along with Black Sabbath and Deep Purple, they are often cited as the Godfathers of Heavy Metal. But there was more to Zeppelin than just heavy riffs. Led Zeppelin's first album serves as a blueprint for what would follow in the rest of their career. "Led Zeppelin 1" showcased an eclectic mix of styles that would set them apart from their contemporaries. There's a huge debt to the Blues music that they loved so much, which was the initial common thread for Jimmy Page and Robert Plant, with artists such as Howlin' Wolf and Muddy Waters proving particularly influential.
This fascinating program tells the story of the music and artists that have influenced the legendary British Rock pioneers, Led Zeppelin. Down The Tracks continues to examine how the group created their mighty stadium rock sound that helped define the musical backdrop of the '70s, while influencing virtually every heavy metal rock band that came after them.
Features live music clips from songs performed by: Son House, Howlin' Wolf, Bukka White, Muddy Waters, Davey Graham And many more. Watch the live music that influenced Led Zeppelin, and learn about the making of one of the best Rock and Roll bands of all time.

An album that took the Who full circle back to their earliest mod days and the adventures of a pill-popping Mod on an epic journey of self-discovery. But in 1973 it was an album that almost never was. Beset by money problems, a studio in construction, heroin-taking managers, a lunatic drummer and a culture of really heavy drinking, Pete took on an album that nearly broke him and an album that within a year the band had turned their back on and would ignore for nearly three decades. With unseen archive and in depth interviews from Pete, Roger, Keith, John and those in the studio and behind the lens who made the album and thirty page photo booklet.

  • In Dreams

    Roy Orbison

    Year: 2006

    Runtime: 1 hr 30 min

    From his hardcore '50s Memphis rockabilly start to his symphonic 1960s pop masterpieces and his stunning 1980s comeback, Roy Orbison's uniformly extraordinary recordings still rank today as some of American music's finest. Gifted with a soaring voice that conjured vulnerability and loss with acute precision, the Texas-born singer-songwriter-guitarist wasted no time-- he had his own radio show at age ten and formed his first rock 'n' roll band, The Teen Kings, in 1955. Recording at Sam Phillips' legendary Sun Studios alongside Jerry Lee Lewis and Johnny Cash, Orbison was still seeking his ideal sound and, after parting ways with Sun, finally found it, with 1960's ""Only The Lonely."" Orbison's creativity gave birth to a unique, highly individualized, orchestral pop-rock style that resulted in a series of masterpieces and made him an international star. By 1988, Orbison was enjoying a dream comeback: topping the charts with songs that once again cemented his reputation as a pop genius; but ultimately, death claimed him too soon. In Dreams (which marks this legend's 70th Anniversary) is a definitive 90-minute documentary that charts the entire grand trajectory of his unrivaled career and includes in-depth interviews with Roy as well as many of his admirers.

  • Sum Of The Parts

    Genesis

    Year: 2014

    Runtime: 1 hr 30 min

    This is a feature-length documentary about Genesis - one of the most successful bands in rock history. And also one of the most vilified. A band that almost died in the mid-1970s with the loss of its leader ; it then survived a change of lead singer and style to storm the charts in the 1980s. Remarkably, its principle members developed successful solo careers in parallel with the band’s.

    With full access to the key players, including Peter Gabriel and Phil Collins, the film recounts an extraordinary musical story .

    They were British public school boys, whose experimental progressive rock band, led by Peter Gabriel, attracted for much of the 1970s a fervent, mainly young male, following. But then in the 1980s, the Phil Collins-led Genesis kicked into an altogether different, more pop, sound , attracting a massive following - including many young women fans . In the process, they became one the most successful bands in the world. Their 1986 album “Invisible Touch”, for example, produced five US top ten singles including number one with the title song.

  • Classic Albums: Aja

    Steely Dan

    Year: 1976

    Runtime: 50 min

    A vivid portrait of a '70s record that is still as fresh and memorable today as when it was released more than two decades ago. Pioneering pop/jazz band Steely Dan, formed by Donald Fagen and Walter Becker in the early seventies, had already secured five Top 40 albums before the release of Aja in 1977. Aja, however, was to prove to be the biggest selling album of Steely Dan's illustrious career, reaching No. 3 on the Billboard chart and spending a year in the Top 40. Becker and Fagen, renowned for their relentless perfectionism in the recording studio, recall the history of an album that was a year in the making, but rewarded with a Grammy Award and three hit singles. Steely Dan's Aja has proven to be one of the most outstanding jazz-rock albums in the history of popular music and now its story is told in this fascinating documentary.

  • Freedom Road

    Bob Marley and the Wailers

    Year: 2007

    Runtime: 55 min

    He was and is, without doubt, Jamaica's finest export and in this film we can reveal for the first time the behind the scenes Bob Marley that only his closest confidantes could know. To help us understand a little more about this iconic Jamaican is his long time girlfriend and Oscar nominated actress Esther Anderson who describes in detail their life together at home in Hope Road as well as in London. Of all the people considered closest to him, Esther was probably the person who knew more about the man's innermost thoughts and fears than any; so much was she in tune with him she even helped to write some of his hit records. Also featured is the last interview he would ever give in the UK where journalist Kris Needs questions him about his foot injury (the injury that would eventually lead to the diagnosis of terminal cancer) and many other topics about which Marley held strong views. The DVD also reveals previously unseen home footage plus live performances including 'Lively Up Yourself' which was last seen performed in the 70's.

    All roads have led to this. Forty-one years in the making, the R40 Live tour took a very real journey back through time. Beginning with the grand design: a state-of-the-art stage set that pivots, rolls and dives, and brings Clockwork Angels in to bombastic, colorful life before marching stridently back in time (through theatre stages, a panoply of band and fan shots, the accrued memories of a life spent playing live) to a mocked-up school gym and the band playing there; a solitary bass amp set on the chair behind Geddy Lee, a mirror ball spiraling crazily above, casting thin rods of light like a light rain across the crowd, 'Working Man' coming to a shuddering halt as the band s beginning becomes their end. Rush recorded and filmed R40 LIVE over two sold-out shows in the band's hometown of Toronto on June 17 & 19, 2015 in the middle of what was rumored to be their last grand-scale tour.
