Crossfire Hurricane is an intimate look through the half-century-long career of “the greatest rock and roll band in the world.” It’s well worth watching for any fan of The Stones.
This 2007 concert from Orchestral Manoeuvers in the Dark will take you right back to the good ol’ days of John Hughes films, black eyeliner, and Flock of Seagulls hairdos.
Alanis Morissette brings her brand of rock to Montreaux for this July 2012 performance that fans will love. The hi-res 96/24 audio also makes it a treat for audiophiles.

A breakthrough film in many respects, The Jazz Singer was the first feature-length movie with synchronized sound. Based on the real-life story of legendary entertainer Al Jolson, the restoration of this 85 year-old film is superb. Be advised that most of the film is silent with titles and it does have a few scenes with Jolson in “blackface”.
