Top 100 Music & Music Collections Films

(October 28, 2014)
The Beatles: Help Big Star: Nothing Can Hurt Me Jimi Hendrix: Hear My Train a Comin'
There is no doubt, "A Band Called Death" is an amazing documentary -- as is evident by how many months it sat in the #1 position of our Top Renting Music & Music Collections list. So, it took some pretty heavy hitters to knock it to 4th: The Beatles, Big Star and Jimi Hendrix! Richard Lester's "Help!" (1965; w/The Beatles) now sits in that #1 position -- a worthy replacement in my opinion. Next up is Drew DeNicola and Olivia Mori's documentary "Big Star: Nothing Can Hurt Me" (2012). Fwiw, next week we'll be getting "Big Star: Live in Memphis" from 1994 -- the only known professionally filmed Big Star show in its entirety (w/Jon Auer and Ken Stringfellow from The Posies joining original Big Star members Alex Chilton and Jody Stephens on stage). Jimi Hendrix rounds out the podium with the recent documentary, "Hear My Train a Comin'". Death is fourth followed by three more Beatles titles, Bob Dylan (whose spectacular Complete Basement Tapes is being released in a 6-CD set next week), "Woodstock" and the new Peter Gabriel title, "Back to Front".
