From a corporate point of view, the film reveals very astute business decisions to continue to re-invent the company as musical tastes changed over time. From Ahmet's early love of Black musicians and jazz, to the British invasion sounds of the Stones, Led Zep, and Emerson/Lake & Palmer, he obviously could see the future and where the money was to be made.
Readers of this review should also be interested in viewing "The Language of Music: the Tom Dowd Story". Tom was one of the top producers/engineers for Atlantic Records during its hey-day. A friend of mine here in South Florida had the privelege of working with Dowd at Criteria Studios in Miami the night Derek & the Dominos recorded "Layla". He said Dowd was so taken by the magic of the session that he (my friend) was left to operate the board! No pressure!
These two DVDs, when considered together, give the viewer a quality insight into the "behind the scenes" aspects of the music industry as it unfolded at Atlantic. If you love the music of the 60's, then you will definitely enjoy both videos.
If how Rock and Roll came to be has the slightest fascination for you , you must own this. And if nothing else, it makes a great pre-show video for your next concert DVD.
