VOX AC30 - THE AMP THAT POWERED THE BRITISH BEAT BOOM
U.K. documentary. "Vox Pop - How Dartford Powered the British Beat Boom." Very cool documentary on the birth and history of Vox—the famous manufacturer of guitar amps, Teardrop guitars, Continental organs, foot pedals and more. Vintage footage of the Vox manufacturing process and interviews with employees and musicians.

In the 1960s British pop groups conquered the world. But as the Beatles, the Stones, the Shadows, the Dave Clark Five, the Yardbirds and others took the stage they had one thing in common—Vox equipment.  Some top professional musicians including Queen's Brian May and Bruce Welch of the Shadows, along with the factory workers of the time, recount the story of how an unlikely small company in unglamorous Dartford, Kent hit the big time and defined the sound of the 60s in Britain.

Plus this bonus selection...

THE JOY OF THE 45 RPM
U.K. documentary. "The Joy of the Single." Do you remember buying your first 45 rpm single? Where you bought it? What it was? The thrill of playing it for the first time? What it sounded like? How it maybe changed your life? Lots of us do. Lots of us still have that single somewhere in a dusty box in the attic, along with other treasured memorabilia of an adolescence lost in music and romance. The attic of our youth.

Look for terrific vintage footage of record stores doing a brisk business; packed listening booths and cash registers ringing up sales. Also, lovely footage of record pressing plants, huge mounds of vinyl being churned and small squares being pressure-squeezed into shimmering 45 rpm discs. Lots of records players and jukeboxes too.
