Movie Reviews

An excellent documentary!!!
Michael R. Dearing | Citrus Heights, CA United States | 11/06/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I can not recommend this DVD enough! I have had so much fun watching it over and over again. It is full of well told stories and memories about what went into the photographs and the design of some of the best album covers of all time. Look carefully at the cover of this DVD and you will see what I mean. But it is not a typical documentary. It moves beautifully, weaving between the set-up of the concepts and where the photos were taken, with commentary by Henry Diltz (the photographer) and Gary Burden (the graphic designer) and band members. The photographs are stunning. Henry took tons of photos with the artists in natural situations, at their homes and just having fun. Also, the editing of the DVD is great, allowing you to enjoy so much of how everything came about. Plus Henry also shot alot of super 8 movies of parties and gatherings. And, there is a photo gallery that is incredible.
The commentary by Gary and Henry describes everything in a casual yet exciting way that capture the moments perfectly.
This is the best rock related documentary I have ever seen. You will not regret this purchase."
Great stories about the albums and their covers!

"This DVD is an excellent blend of interviews, stills, and old 8mm movie footage of the musicians and artists that created these classic album covers. There are some really great stories here. I love that these guys return to the "scene of the crime" so you can see what those landmarks look like now. Seeing the artists themselves discussing the album cover art is great too.If you are a fan of any of these "California Rock" artists you'll treasure this DVD."
Fun fun fun!

"The two guys who created some of the finest and most famous album covers (anyone recall LPs?) ... hear the inside scoop.

This is pure fun. These two had the best job in America ... hands down.

I can watch it over and over and still be delighted."
Fabulous documentary on the photographers behind the covers.

"This is a must have for all of those photographers out there who are music lovers as well. Fantastic behind the scene recollections of the way the covers were made - including the take from the art director as well. Well worth the money and I would have paid 4x the amount for this item."
