Review on

We thank Jason Green for a very nice review of the film(s) at

He writes in part: "Ask someone to define the local music scene in St. Louis and they'll likely think it either kickstarted in the ‘90s during the rise of the Urge, Gravity Kills, and Pointessential compilations, or never existed outside of the '50s heyday of Chuck Berry, Miles Davis, and Ike Turner. But what's often overlooked is the vibrant local scene of the 1970s, when the nascent KSHE-95 helped birth the AOR radio format and gave a home to a wide slew of St. Louis-based rock bands. A pair of new documentaries screening during this year's St. Louis International Film Festival aims to change that oversight."

Here's the full review.

Don't know how long these stay live, but here's the coverage.

"Old Dog"/"The Pride" Media Mania, cont.
