    I don't know if this is still on Netflix, but that's where I saw it. It was a remarkable documentary.

    Thank you for posting these. I like to listen to these on Youtube while falling asleep at night. Not music related, but listening to the Edgar Allen Poe documentary and Al Capone.

    I just watched this.
    Its amazing... saw a lot of clips / interviews from musicians/ producers whose music was a major influence.

    Thanks for the link!

    Not sure if it's available on Youtube or Netflix but the New Basement Tapes documentary is pretty interesting. It features modern songwriters with a good deal of talent trying to write music to old Dylan lyrics. It didn't matter that I wasn't a big fan of the songwriters going into it, still a great flick

    "Artifact" is a good one on Netflix. About the band 30 Seconds To Mars and their legal battle with their label while trying to write their third album. Very interesting, don't need to be a fan to enjoy and learn.

    "How To Grow A Band" is on Netflix as well and follows Chris Thile (of Nickel Creek fame) as he starts his progressive bluegrass project Punch Brothers. Ridiculously good musicians in this one.

    There's a decent John Mayer doc on YouTube that I can't remember the name of but it comes up if you just search him. Not an "official" doc I don't think, but really well done.

    The Muscle Shoals doc is gold. What fantastic music and humble, fine people.
