I don't know how many of y'all are familiar with CuriosityStream, but we picked it up late last year and it's been our main entertainment source since then.

I saw that, but am bothered by the title off the get go Robbie Robertson and The Band??  Really?? I have not read Levon's book, but have heard Robertson has totally done the other guys wrong financially and claiming all the credit distorting history.   May be wrong on that, but would like to hear from someone who is more versed on the ins and outs of their history. I mean I obviously do not know these 2 guys personally, but my gut tells me Levon is more of a stand up guy and Danko tends to agree:

Rick Danko, The Band's bass player, sides with Helm. " I think Levon's book hits the nail on the head about where Robbie and Albert Grossman and some of those people went wrong and The Band stopped being The Band. I'm truely friends with everyone but hey...it could happen to Levon, too. When people take themselves too seriously and believe too much of their bullshit, they usually get in trouble."

This has been out for a couple of years now someone may have already posted but I finally got around to watching it and I cannot recall learning so much in one documentary before.  This is extraordinary:

As a lifelong bodybuilding fan of course I loved this one, but this story is so much more than that.  Highly recommend:

Nice, ive got some 40 y.o. tapes that still play fine (plenty of dead bootlegs).  Of course, all pre-recorded tapes were crap...had to do you own Maxell/TDK version from vinyl.
I'm in the process of replacing a capstan motor for my old Nak.

 Lowell George, Hank Williams, Janis Joplin, Charlie Parker, Tim Buckley and his son Jeff, Jim Morrison, James Dean, Faron Young...

Seems like the very thing that drives them to create, also drives them to self-destruction.

I am familiar with Frank, my best friend growing up was a Zap Fanatic so I heard him unwillingly when the albums actually came out.  Sheik Yerbouti was the album I most remember.

Oh yea, Amazon video has the best music documentaries.   Anything Netflix has, the Zon has and much more especially with docs.  If you like movies and I hear the kids still  do such things, quite, maybe not, I have Assburgers and think all movies especially modern ones suck. 
{#Frustrated}
  But documentaries are the universities of the future and Amazon is where to watch em.

Some people learn a word a day, I watch a music documentary a day.  Thank you Emperor Bezos!  Anyway these "music journalist" are saying how unremarkable and sloppy Exile on Main Street is.   Yea, perhaps the greatest rock and roll masterpiece album of all time is unremarkable and sloppy.  Talk about not getting it.{#Shifty}

Simply amazing.  I am not even a particular fan musically of Zappa, not exactly easy listening{#Lol}, but this is more about his influences more than his own music.  Just a wealth of musical history for the particular genres of classical, doo wop, obscure R and B and jazz.
