Every couple of weeks I'll scan through the guide for Palladia, VH1-Classic, PBS and Ovation, and set the DVR to record music documentaries. I've found these to be really informative and a whole lot of fun.
Over the last year I saw a few real gems. Recently the documentary "Mr. Blue Sky - Jeff Lynne" was excellent, as was "Crossfire Hurricane - the early Rolling Stones" and "The Making of Pink Floyd's Wish You Were Here". Also saw great documentaries on Dizzy Gillespie, Miles Davis, Sinatra and the Rat Pack, Billie Holiday, "A Technicolor Dream" (on early Floyd and the 60's London underground scene), The History of Electronic Music, Zappa & The Mothers, Simon & Garfunkle, Dylan. This Friday PBS has a new documentary on the making of Magical Mystery Tour.
