    Since I read this thread a few hours ago I've watched the Anvil documentary and The Wrecking Crew and genuinely have learned so much.

    There's ton of great documentaries on DVD.
    Just search for "classic albums"
    I have a bunch of them. All about the making of classic albums.
    Also"classic albums under review".
    Just search your favorite artists name followed by ' dvd'.

    For funny spoofs i still enjoy ' Walk Hard ', the takeoff on ' Walk the Line '.

    Monterey Pop - Jimi, Otis, Janis, Laura Nyro...the first pop festival. Ah, 1967.

    Festival - about Newport Folk Festival including when Zimmerman went electric in front of the purists, cool Bloomfield footage, Howlin' Wolf and the sublime Mississippi John Hurt.

    Jazz On A Summer's Day - Newport Jazz Festival, with Thelonius, the lovely swinging Anita O'Day and Chuck Berry.

    The US Festival 1982 - Woz's and Wolfgang Grajonka's big wazoo.

    Any film with bass player Tony Levin in it has to be good.

    And there's a spectacular nude scene in it featuring the lovely Joan Hackett, along with a nude bathtub scene with Mare Winningham.

    Oh yeah, Paul Simon is in the movie too.

    In no particular order.

    Eddie and the Cruisers 1&2
    Walk the Line
    Muscle Shoals
    Your Cheatin Heart

    Those are my favorites and I will watch them if one is on TV.

    Yes, Netflix has a few documentaries at the moment (depends on your country, perhaps?). Most are worth your time.

    Hired Gun, Crossfire Hurricane, Under the Influence, Punk Syndrome, Sugarman, etc. The one about Muscle Schoals was really interesting.

    I have that on DVD since it came out and still haven't watched it.

    Decline 2 is great for comedic value but I remember guys like that when I first started really getting into bands and stuff. A lot of the older guys at the time were just like those dufases. Decline 1 is probably the best historically but 3 is just annoying.

    I had 1&2 on VHS for years. There's a DVD set now.

    Eight days a week is also worth a look.
