What follows is, pretty much documentary called “The British R&B Boom” which was an episode in the TV series “Rock Family Trees”
The series originates from the work of a gentleman called Pete Frame who drew family trees of various bands/artists and were, as far as I can remember, first published in the late 70’s/80’s in the UK weekly music publication “Sounds” (now defunct). All the TV documentaries were narrated by the respected English music broadcaster, John Peel.
This documentary (with lot´s of old TV nd concert clips and many interviews) exploring all the stories that lie behind some of the best-known bands. In this edition, John Peel narrates the story of the British R&B boom, which included two of the biggest bands of the late 60s and early 70s, Cream and Led Zeppelin. This programme charts the careers of groups as diverse as the Yardbirds, John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers, Manfred Mann and Cream as they turned the blues into rock.
And here´s this pretty good documentary about of the most important years of British Blues & Rock …
