Written by Peter Guralnick and narrated by Jeffrey Wright, 'Sam Cooke - Legend' is a stirring look at a singular talent. Produced for VH1 but expanded from the original broadcast, Guralnick has put together a surprisingly thorough biography with vintage performance and interview clips. Cooke's gospel roots, groundbreaking career decisions, and forays into the civil rights movement all explored.
American Masters' documentary about the country music legend Merle Haggard, often called 'the poet of the common man,' features interviews with comrades and fellow musicians including Robert Duvall, John Fogerty, Kris Kristofferson, Keith Richards, Tanya Tucker, and Dwight Yoakam. The people with whom he was raised - his juvenile delinquency and incarcerations - still inform his creativity.
