This category caught my eye.

Long Strange Trip — (The Grateful Dead)
The Defiant Ones — (Various Artists)
Soundbreaking— (Various Artists)
Two Trains Runnin’ — (Various Artists)
I have seen three of the five films (marked in bold) this year. I have yet to process Nick Cave after trying several times to listen to him and his band on Spotify and Apple Music. Perhaps when I see the One More Time With Feeling documentary I will get the video/audio syntax I need to appreciate him better. Adds this film to my to-do list.
Being an active blues historian I was surprised to have not read about Two Trains Runnin’ until today. I am eager to see this documentary as soon as its distribution widens.
