Think Behind The Music meets Inside the Actor’s Studio. Classic Albums is a nicely done documentary series on classic albums. Each one is about an hour long and features some or all of the original artists talking about how the albums were made. Then, with an engineer, they break down some of the more popular songs into their individual tracks so you hear how the mix is affected. I saw one on Fleetwood Mac’s Rumours playing in Hollywood video, but you can also get it on Netflix. If you’re a behind the scenes junkie like I am, this series is worth a look. You’ll can also spend time going through their YouTube page for preview clips from other artists like Jay Z, Paul Simon, Zappa and so on.
