Billy Altman's Top 10 of 2006 Best Sound on CD

In the heyday of Blockbuster, music documentaries and concert videos were tough to find unless you were willing to settle for musty oldies like the Three Tenors or musty newbies like Britney Spears.

The plot had enough sex and violence to get it banned immediately upon its 1926 debut in Köln, Germany.
