Rock and Roll - playlist from the PBS/BBC 10 pt documentary circa 1995.

I'm watching the series again. It is t.h.e. b.e.s.t. Some of it produced/directed by Don Letts, i gather from the credits. (the punk/reggae episode in particular). The stories from the musicians themselves about how the music came to be, who/what influenced them, and the big why questions answered. I'm one for questions, if you remember from my posts here, and here are the answers from the only opinions who matter - the musicians themselves.

When I listen to this playlist that I'm making, it brings back to me the storyline of the documentary, the interviews, and with it, the sense of history and scope. Music as a real social force. THAT's what gets me back into music sometimes - the human history that goes right along with it.

I'm watching it in reverse order, for the most part. That's why the playlist doesn't have the eariler tracks yet. Will add them as I watch each episode. Right now, it's music mostly the last 2 episodes. But more will be added.

I'm afraid that I remain unconvinced by Spotify Christian. Is there some way that you can make this list available without the need for me to connect to Spotify - just a text list of the songs, for example?

Well I didn't see your list, until now, but wow! I will look to see what I missed from this list.

Anyway, I finally got around to watching the first episode and adding the early stuff.

So, the playlist is now complete, with the exception of whatever I find from this list that Jonathan added.
