Joe Cocker : Mad dogs & Englishmen by Joe Cocker( Visual )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 83 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Mad Dogs and Englishmen" is a celebration of Joe Cocker's magical mystery tour of the United States in 1970. Faced with a booked tour and no band, a group of friends came to his aid, forming an entourage of 42 musicians, singers, wives, girl friends, children and dogs, who set out to create the world's first flying commune. The film follows Cocker and company through airports, bus terminals, motel pools, hotel kitchens, and a picnic, but the point of the film is the music, and the musical scenes offer some of the best filmed rock music since "Woodstock." Along with the behind-the-scenes aspect, director Pierre Adidge has an instinctive feel for the Cocker personality, onstage and off, and when the band finishes an exceptional take, the joy they feel is visible

Uncle Meat : the Mothers of Invention movie by Frank Zappa( Visual )

1 edition published in 1988 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Work began on "Uncle Meat" in New York City in the summer of 1967. Over the last 20 years, whenever there was enough money to allow for it, sections of "story continuity" were added (1968, 1970 and 1982) until the whole blob of raw footage was transferred to videotape in the Spring of 1987 at Pacific Video in Los Angeles. Admittedly a "weird" movie involving "non standard behavioral types" and their "lore" the film provides "a record for future generations that during this part of the 20th century there actually were people who did not act or think like the plasticized caricatures that will survive to represent us in TV reruns or 'real world' history books."--Container
