THIS IS THE BEST SHOW EVER. FLEETWOOD, STEELY, FLOYD AND U2 EPISODES ARE SOOOOOOO GOOD. SUCKY ONES INCLUDE: STEVIE WONDER (eXCEPT WATCHING HIM PLAY DRUMS IS PRETTY AWESOME) AND PAUL SIMON WAS BORING!! GRATEFUL DEAD AND NIRVANA IVE SEEN A MIL TIMES BUT DONT REMEMBER THEM. I AM VOTING FOR THE MOTORHEAD EPISODE. PHILTHY IS *AMAZING* IN THAT@!#!@!@!@ WHO KNEW THERE WAS A TAP DANCER TRACK ON ACE OF SPADES. ALSO DAVE BROCK IS IN IT!!

Voted "A Night At The Opera" because it made me love the album even more. The Steely Dan and Pink Floyd ones were great too though, not least because of Donald Fagen being his usual sarcastic and ironic self. :)

The Motorhead one is good as a series of anecdotes - Philthee nearly breaking his neck, punch up with a gang of trouble makers at a German gig, etc. - but low on tech details.
The Pink Floyd one is good for the way it goes into how they recorded the album - confirms Gilmour as the most boring person alive though.
Simply Red = a hour of looking at Hucknall's smug face.

snoball, Friday, 19 October 2007 15:25 (ten years ago) Permalink

This show rules, especially the Steely Dan and Meat Loaf episodes. And chaki's right that the Stevie Wonder one is definitely the most disappointing. I'm probably gonna vote for Phil Collins, though, just because that was the episode that most made me want to hear an album I haven't heard (I liked the singles and wanted to hear it before, but the show really made me want to hear it).

This list doesn't include the latest episode, for Jay-Z's Reasonable Doubt, which I haven't seen yet.

Alex in Baltimore, Friday, 19 October 2007 15:30 (ten years ago) Permalink

I can't really hate the Stevie episode. I mean, chaki's right: how often do you see extended footage of Stevie drumming???

I voted for Rumours – besides the obvious virtues, I really admire how these people STILL manage to say a few half-interesting things about an album they and everyone has discussed 67,890 times since 1977.

Alfred, Lord Sotosyn, Friday, 19 October 2007 15:32 (ten years ago) Permalink

The Band episode was pretty stunning, for John Simon's insights, for Levon being Levon, for Danko's heartbreaking solo "Unfaithful Servant," and for Garth's keyboard playing in lieu of an interview. But Robertson's pompousness is absolutely off the charts, and he's pretty much unbearable to watch/listen to.

So I gotta go with the Who's Next episode, not just because it's the best record in the series, but because there is no better interview in rock than Townshend. And Daltrey's explanation of Moon's genius (while messing with the multitrack of "Behind Blue Eyes") is beautiful.

Sara Sara Sara, Friday, 19 October 2007 16:15 (ten years ago) Permalink

Oh yeah, I love the stuff in the Who's Next episode with Pete and Roger behind the boards. I think I've only seen bits and pieces of that episode, but if I'd seen all of it it might be my favorite.

Mark G, Friday, 19 October 2007 16:21 (ten years ago) Permalink

Ah, fuck. I voted for Rumours before I remembered The Band's brown album one.

Oh, well. I'll say The Band would be my No. 1 were it not for Jeff Goldblum Robbie Robertson's interview portions.

Went with Rumours for Stevie telling the camera how she gave up so much and she's still here. Also, Lindsey Buckingham highlighting in solo Nicks' anguished background vocals on "Gold Dust Woman".

A really badass bonus feature on the DVD would be a ROM feature where you were given a mixing board for one of the songs and got to play around with it like they do.

Is the Grateful Dead episode actually the Anthem of the Sun to American Beauty DVD? Do they sometimes cover wide swaths of an artist's career, rather than just one album? I think that the Anthem to Beauty DVD is in this series. The short interview with the artist that painted the cover for Anthem of the Sun is so great, he stares bug-eyed at the camera and talks about watching the Dead on New Year's on hallucinogens and having a vision of the band as a 6 headed hydra. There's some cool live footage and also snippets from their appearance on Playboy after Dark. Classic!

And, you know, I'd love to see "Selling England By The Pound" too, but at least I will get a "mini documentary" on that one when the remaster is being released next spring. The producer and engineer will not be around for that though (shame, really, that Genesis didn't bring people like David Henschel and Hugh Padgam around for those remaster interviews. Would have loved getting their views)

the aja one wins

is anyone else a little bothered by the repeated recorded-for-the-show band footage? i mean, it's fine and all, but not a patch on the original recording, and it seems like it's just there to pad out the running time. i seriously can't imagine that Fagan didn't have more to say about aja.

Lawrence the Looter, Saturday, 20 October 2007 07:23 (ten years ago) Permalink

Love this show - wish I'd caught more than a half-dozen eps. (Only ones I remember: Kiss Alive, Ace of Spades, Joshua Tree, Nevermind, Rumours, Metallica.) Very informative - the entire procedure of record-making fascnates me, even as regards albums I have no use for, namely Metallica and U2.

Like snoball said, altho the Motorhead episode was tremendously entertaining, Fleetwood Mac takes it. The tech details themselves were excellent, of course, but the multiple-breakups backstory added an emotional element that the other episodes lacked. Oddly moving (and maybe a little self-serving) bit: Mick Fleetwood's assertion that he was as miserable as the other four, suffering relationship problems of his own.

Myonga Vön Bontee, Saturday, 20 October 2007 09:18 (ten years ago) Permalink

Well actually I said that the Pink Floyd one takes it because of the tech detail. Especially the bits with Alan Parsons at the mixing desk. But you're right that the Fleetwood Mac one is up there too, not only for the information on recording an album in an expensive LA recording studio in the 70's, but the feeling of "how the hell did these people produce an album when they all hated each other?". I think it's John McVie who recounts an argument where he said to Lindsey Buckingham "I think you'd better leave" meaning leave the room but LB thought JM meant leave the band and then did.

The Pink Floyd one was pretty good, but if you want to talk about filler, try watching 20 minutes of London commuters placing one foot in front of the other to the tune of "Us & Them".

I watched the 'dark side of the moon' one last night and tbh am amazed it got no votes here. it wasn't enlightening or essential, but the interviews (with all four band members, and storm thorgerson and alan parsons) were quite informative, especially in understanding who contributed what.

resultant curry paste (Autumn Almanac), Tuesday, 22 January 2013 00:28 (four years ago) Permalink

I slagged the Dark Side one above, but honestly, as I said on another thread, it's worth the price of admission just to hear Rick Wright describe how he thought to put that chord into the spinal column of "Great Gig in the Sky".

He has since admitted to being in the wrong when Floyd split:

He was right, I was wrong. It was really simple. I thought it should be retired but I was wrong. And I’m perfectly content with what they did. I had problems at the time. I don’t have any problems now.

Aja and The Band are both excellent, the latter helped cement that album as one of my all-time favourites, the level of detail in the playing is incredible.

DSOTM one was great too - I have to say Waters came across worse in the more recent BBC Wish You Were Here documentary, still griping that they should've used his vocals on 'Have a Cigar' instead of Roy Harper's.

Motorhead one is hilarious. Filthy is so weird.

It's probably my favourite CA, depending on whether or not I want to hear any studio/tech talk. And 'Ace of Spades' definately does not contain much of that, but it more than makes up for it by including all the other stuff that's cool about being in a band, especially the humour. ("There's nothing scarier than a naked man with a sword and a hard-on." / "These clothes are all rented." / "I am saying 'fuck' enough now?" / etc.)

The Hysteria one is hilarious. The straining for significance is just agonizing. The drummer seems determined to live down his past and show he's particularly thoughtful.
