Superb, illuminating series

A documentary series on several of the key albums in music history. Each episode covers a different album and shows the making of the album, its success and influence. Included are interviews with band members and supporting staff (eg producers, engineers, session players) and with music critics and historians.

Superb series. Well researched and well presented. We don't just see the making of the album but the backstory to it - the band/artist's history to that point and any influences on them in making the album, long-term and short.

Good coverage of how each song was made - really gets you inside the mind of the writers and performers and shows the creativity that went into each song.

Interviews are relevant and illuminating - no "experts" just being cheerleaders.
