    Sound City: Reel to Reel is a passion project, for sure. This is not for everyone, but definitely for those of us who were brought up on rock and for those that enjoy real music. I wouldn't expect that most kids today would have the patience to sit and learn something about an art form that has pretty much died, but if they truly love music, they would enjoy it. So it may only be for people with a little more seasoned musical taste. The story of the studio and the Neve board and all the great music that was produced there is cool in itself, but then add Dave's passion, love really, for the place and the board in particular, bringing that who's who list of musicians in to create and record music... Amazing. I bought the record (that's right vinyl record) first, but the movie has only re-emphasized how good it is. Highly Recommend!

    Foo Fighters frontmen David Grohl has made this informative, powerful film about the history of music recording in the US based around the now defunct Sound City Studios. It is based on the general belief by Grohl that live tape recording is superior to digital recording that is soncommon in the music world today. He doesn't completely disregard the digital recording process, but it is obvious he would rather prefer the live tape recording. Take it for what it is. This documentary has interviews with many artists and bands about their recording at this studio through the years as well as the engineers and producers who worked there. Its powerful and gives one something to think about and may cause a few people to actually debate this whole digital/tape recording issue.

    This is a great documentary for any music fan. It gives you a great behind the scenes view of how some of rock and roll's greatest albums were made - and the common thread that they have - Sound City. If you've ever had the chance to record in a studio, then this doc will mean even more to you. Some people might be bored by talk of getting a great drum sound, but not me. If you agree, then you need to see Sound City.

    Seems like everything Dave Grohl touches turns to gold and this is an amazing example. There is so much history covered, so much information, that you have to watch multiple times to see it all. Sound City was an important part of music, and it's sad to see it gone. But, it will live on in this video. Don't miss the extras!! I have recommended this DVD to several of my friends and they agree. . . it's the best!

    I accidentally posted my review of this blu-ray on my purchase of the cd, so look there for my write up on the film. All I would add is I wish they had included the show the Sound City Players had performed either at Sundance or at the Hollywood Palladium as a bonus feature. As for the CD, the songs are great - especially the collaborations with Rick Springfield and Paul McCartney.

    This movie does an awesome job reviewing the history of a very influential recording studio. It's cool to see how the behind the scenes work and all the craziness that goes into making a record. Along the way you'll also be educated about the music industry and learn about the negative impacts of digital media. A must see for fans of good music!!

    This is an awesome Bluray movie/documentary/music video. If you like any of the artist from Nirvana to Fleetwood Mac to Tom Petty and all kinds of rock in-between you will love this. It is great! Dave Grohl is a genius and it shows and I'm so glad he put this together and you must get the sound track to this on CD. The songs and artist on it are great.

    Some of my favorite and best albums were recorded at this studio. Dave Grohl does a great job capturing the history and spirit of the place. The digital world has done some good and bad things but when it comes to music I think it has suffered because of it. Anything Dave touches turns to musical gold.
