Judging from all the action at the Sundance Film Festival this week, it’s a good time for the music documentary genre. Dave Grohl introduced his Studio City film. There’s a new documentary on the Fame Studios at Muscle Shoals. The Eagles released a two part doc on their career, which will play on Showtime next month. Lost in the shuffle and not at the festival is a film that will appeal to folk music fans, people who love New York City, and those interested in music’s role in our political society. It’s called Greenwich Village: Music That Defined A Generation. A lot of musicians have actually survived from the 1960’s music scene, and tell their stories with plenty of archival film clips. They cover Bob Dylan, Pete Seeger, Judy Collins, Simon & Garfunkel, and Steve Earle, just to name a few. It was screened in NYC last weekend. When do we get to see it here? When will it be available on DVD? Beats me. Nobody’s sayin’. I’ll keep my ear to the ground and will let you know what’s going on. In the meantime, here’s a trailer and some clips that might make you really really want to see it.
