If you like documentaries, this is your week, as a number of fascinating subjects are deftly explored on newly released DVDs.“Soundbreaking” (Athena, 2016, three discs, eight episodes, featurettes, 20-page booklet). This is an excellent documentary miniseries that aired recently on PBS about musical innovations of the past century, a potentially dry subject that is brought to life with humor and wide-eyed recollections by many of the innovators themselves in a format that is nonlinear and highly entertaining.More than 150 interviews were conducted over the past five years for this project with loads of major participating music stars and producers, including Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, George Martin, Elton John, Roger Waters, Joni Mitchell, Quincy Jones, Annie Lennox, Willie Nelson, Questlove and too many more to name. Music fans will find themselves in heaven, but even those with just a passing interest will find much to enjoy.
