Recommends it for: rock flick fans
Marshall Crenshaw should update this excellent book compiling info on every great rock movie ever made since the Fifties. He rates each movie according to music, attitude and fun. There are also listings regarding who has a cameo in the film and what are the money lines! No movie is too small for this book, whether it's "Angel Angel Down We Go", "Groupie", or "You Are What You Eat". Woefully out of print.
Lotta fun! The review of the TAMI show is excellent - haven't seen the damn thing since it came out (in what, 1963?) and Marshall brought it all back vividly. By now it's probably due for an update.

Recommends it for: people who love film almost as much as they do music.
The historical facts are nicely punctuated by Crenshaw's droll wit.
