Over the last half century, music documentaries like these have provided us with a priceless moving-image history of rock Ďní roll. Rock Docs: A Fifty-Year Cinematic Journey is a first-of-its-kind anthology of the rockumentary genre, viewing pop musicís timeline through the prism of non-fiction film. Since its earliest days, the look of rock Ďní roll has been integral to its overall appeal. Up and down the hallways of pop history there is always something interesting to see as well as to hear. This book reviews over 150 films, starting with a ground level look at the Beatlesí world-changing first visit to America and coming full circle fifty years later with Good Olí Freda, where the Fab Fourís secretary looks back through the years as both a fan and an insider. In between, readers will find many films to re-experience or discover for the first time.
