Description

This three-part documentary series explores the history of soft rock music and is the untold story of soft rock, whose artists dominated pop music worldwide in the ‘70s, only to crash and burn in the ‘80s, eventually experiencing one of the most unlikely comebacks in music history. The series presents all-new interviews with some of soft rock’s biggest legends, like Air Supply (“All Out of Love”), Dan Hill (“Sometimes When We Touch”), Kenny Loggins (“This Is It”), Ray Parker Jr. (“A Woman Needs Love”), Rupert Holmes (“Escape: The Piña Colada Song”) and Toni Tennille (“Love Will Keep Us Together”) and many more. Through candid and poignant stories, these stars lead a celebration of the underappreciated music that continues to have a lasting impact on American culture.

The connective stories that propel the series are augmented by exclusive interviews with dozens of classic and contemporary musicians like Daryl “DMC” McDaniels, John Ondrasik, LA Reid, Richard Marx, Robert “Kool” Bell, Sheryl Crow, Stewart Copeland, Susanna Hoffs and Verdine White; extremely and rarely seen archival interview and performance footage; host commentary that embraces the impact of soft rock while acknowledging the cringey excesses that sometimes led it astray; and a review of its continuing power over a new generation found everywhere from hip hop samples and radio remakes to superhero soundtracks and TikTok posts.

    I saw this documentary advertised on a pay per month streaming channel and wanted to see it real bad…but was not interested in paying a monthly fee for the channel…I made a request here at MVR and they had the 2 DVD Set in stock within days and had it in my mailbox within several days after my order! For anyone who grew up in the late 70’s early 80’s era of when radio was blessed with the sounds of smooth and mellow pop rock there is no other way to celebrate that era than with this fun and very moving documentary of some of the best and timeless music from those years and the story behind the genre!
