All Access: Front Row. Backstage. LIVE!

Martin Colyer, Rock's Backpages, July 2001

"ROCK 'N' ROLL! PHEW!" It’s tempting to speculate what Jeff Bridges would say when faced with a B.B. King the size of a house, sending off his trademark squalls in the spaces between the words of ‘Rock Me Baby’. This 60-minute meditation on music, directed by Martyn Atkins and filmed on IMAX’s large format cameras, attempts to capture the feeling of being behind the scenes as well as on the stage with a cross-section of names from today’s wide world o’ music. 44 speakers and 11,000 watts of sonic wonderfulness complete the picture.
