Rockers - while actually a movie it did start life as a documentary and is so realistic regarding late 70s Jamaican music and life it is closer to a documentary than a movie in many ways.

Here is one of my favorite music documentaries, a bit different from those posted above. Herbie and the Berliners! (although it also covers periods with his other 'bandmates' :D haha!)

Yeah it's funny but it's not documantary;)
But 'Anvil! The Story of Anvil' feels for at least part of it like it's Spinal Tap part 2, it's a good film though.

Searching For Sugar Man is very interesting, especially if you know nothing about the story, the trailer below gives way to much of the details away, so if you prefer to not know all the major events before watching don't click it.

This is a recent excellent doc about Lee Morgan the great jazz trumpeter who was murdered on stage. Great insight into the NYC jazz world in the 60s. On Netflix.

Loved Sound City! I also enjoyed:

Hype! best documentary on the grunge era IMO.

The Wrecking Crew some incredible performances from a group of folks that are on more records than one could believe.

Muscle Shoals again some incredible performances from a historical point of view.

Beware of Mr. Baker The wild Ginger Baker!
