    Just saw on Davis that June 29th will have a release for one of my last remaining 'grails'.... The History of Rock and Roll - the 10 episode series that I've been holding onto my VHS copy of for years, will be on five DVDs...

    No major specs on full frame (as it was made for TV originally) or possible updates/extra footage...

    I'm just so happy - This truly does rock... [​IMG]

    Good news! This was a great show, assuming we are talking about the same one -- the PBS special that aired in 1995.

    This was a definitive documentary. I will be glad to have it on DVD.

    Looking forward to this one as well (I've also got all 10 episodes jammed onto a couple of tapes).

    As good as it was, I'm not sure it was completely definitive (though closer than anything else I've seen so far). For example, I think the entire progressive rock genre got very short shrift...Merely showing the bloated ELP tour buses and commenting on the sparkling robes just wasn't an accurate depiction of the influence of the music or its popularity at the time. Yep, some of it was bad (though name me a genre that didn't have some bad stuff), but some of it was glorious...

    OK, I'm terribly biased towards prog...[​IMG]

    The Funk episode was tremendous though! The old James Brown footage with Bootsy was something to behold...
