SUNDAY VIDEO: THE ELVIS MOB

Hey there!

A documentary on the private life of Elvis Presley as told by his physician, bodyguards, drivers, fixers, gofers and confidants. Elvis never gave an in-depth interview and the testimonies of these characters reveal a darkerside of his character which was a world away from the swagger of his stage persona.

[MIDWEEK MIXTAPE] ELECTRIC FRENZY - SASSAFRAS

This is one of those midweeks where you space out several times a day in your oxygen deprived office during this boring meeting and end up agreeing to do the stupidest things just to hide that you weren’t paying attention. You know?

SUNDAY VIDEO ; CLASSIC ALBUMS - THE BAND S/T

Hey there

Here is a documentary of how the eponymous album The Band was recorded; all surviving members of The Band participated. Other musicians are also interviewed about the impact and influence of the album and The Band in general. Details include the four track method of recording that resulted in multiple parts being recorded on each track. The Band routinely traded instruments, who would sing, etc. to determine what worked best for each song. On many songs, members discussed their (or other) parts specifically and the track was played by itself to here the nuances of the recording. This program really shows both the raw talent of the group, but a level of creativity in making the music that is rarely seen in today’s recording industry.
