    Hard to tell if Summer Of Soul could be considered a "documentary", or a "concert film". And...why not both...

    I've been watching these. He also did a 3 part doc on the Let It Bleed era. He did a really good job. Lots of pix and film that I had never seen. Well researched. And I'm not a big Stones fan.

    Come Together. The Rise of the Festivals. from Sky Arts UK.
    Covering Music festivals from the 1960's to more modern day ones with lots of good artist and organiser talk, but lacking a bit in rare/unseen footage.
    a lot of good stills though.

    Netflix's documentary on Richard Ramirez, AKA The Night Stalker. I was attending college at UC Northridge at the time so the documentary piqued my interest. Not a brilliant piece of work but it brought back some gruesome memories.
