Once Upon A Time In New York

Check out this BBC Doc on the invention of punk, disco and hip hop in 1970's New York...In part 2 there's a lot about the late great club CBGB's. Chris Frantz from Talking Heads describes his first night in CBGB's when he saw The Ramones, Debbie Harry, Television and Patti Smith. I can't beat that but I did see Jeff Buckley there and that aint too shabby. Anyway it's a fascinating look at the invention of three musical genres in a city that was having hard times.
