Later the same night, 'Sound City' is very much worth watching. If it's too late a start, record it.

It's all been rather predictable so far, for the most part.

well yes, and there were some massive omissions. I still enjoyed it. Chuck Berry but not Bo Diddley, no Wild Thing, blah blah

 

The programme that followed it about Sound City recording studios was ghastly, so many up their own ass multi millionaire mediocrities talking about their 'art'. Every time I see a member of so called fleetwood mac I expect them to come out with some drivel about the emotional tensions involved in the recording of Rumours. A pox on all of em

The Friday night music programmes on BBC4 have the potential to be great tv, but most ends up a little disappointing.

The BBC must have 100's of hours of archive that they can show, but most ends up being a collation of dodgy miming performances from Top of the Pops, with the odd gem from Whistle Test or another source thrown in. And their TOTP archive must be shrinking with all the dodgy goings-on by their presenters, that they now can't show.

Still better than Eastenders or Corrie or Location, Location et al though.

I trust you exempt Peter Green (the founder of FM) from that.

I didn't know it was on so missed it. My favourite guitar riffs are the Eric Clapton riff from Layla and (presumably) Ronnie Wood's on "Cindy Incidentally"

My bull ###### detector was twitching throughout the programme but it nearly exploded when somebody started talking about Sonic Youth's 'avant-garde tuning'.

Pretty sure Clapton didn't actually play Layla.....I think it was one of the Alman Brothers. .Duane I think. I could possibly be wrong there tho...(yes I know its unlikely ;) )

Allman played the solo on 'Layla', I'd assume Clapton played the riff, as the two run concurrently at times during the song.

A rule of thumb - if it's got Tom Petty in it, it's probably good.

 

The exception that proves the rule is the movie 'The Postman'.
