Mellotron - A character of an instrument well-explored in this great documentary,
This review is from: Mellodrama: The Mellotron Movie (DVD)The Mellotron is brought forth in this documentary as a "character" in it's own right: a musical character that is important
to get to know in order to further appreciate modern song classics, a musical character that has a sorted past.
An instrument that has a temperamental character, especially when brought on tour with musical giants.
All these stories and more are told in Mellodrama: The Mellotron Movie
Dianna Dilworth does a great job with incorporating archival footage from the birth time of this instrument.
Also well worth seeing are Moody Blue's Mike Pinder, Bigelf's Damon Fox and Froth, Jesse Carmichael of Maroon 5 and many others speak passionately about this instrument.
What is old became new again as musicians find exciting inventive ways to use what are now collectible Mellotrons.
This instrument, the Mellotron, has served as "the kid in the candy store" in many musical giant's lives. I learned this
because of watching this documentary.
