I watch a lot of rock documentaries, and I have to say that this is one of the best. Not as slick as Jarmusch's tribute to The Stooges -- Fields was responsible for signing both the MC5 and The Stooges to Arista for a pittance -- but the on-camera interviews of Iggy and Fields are more informal and funnier. I wonder how many people made the transition from Warhol's Factory scene to the scene around John Sinclair and the White Panther Party. Not many I would imagine. Fields also helped sign the Doors to Arista. There is a superb animated sequence where Fields recounts a drug bacchanal with Jim Morrison, Edie Sedgwick and Nico in the Hollywood Hills. The movie stops after the Ramones part ways with Fields. It would have been nice to get an epilogue covering what he has been doing for the last 35 years.

Out of sight! An underappreciated taste maker. Remarkable. I might suggest Andy Warhol's 'POPism' as a companion piece. It's amazing how much some of these art & culture icons interacted.

I thoroughly enjoyed this film and learning of the genius Danny Fields. He had the uncanny ability to put himself in the right place at the right time, allowing him to discover untapped potential long before anyone else. His impeccable taste brought bands like the Doors, Stooges, and the Ramones (just to name a few) from nothingness, to rock and roll legends. The man was critical in shaping musical culture during the 60s and 70s, and responsible for much of the music we enjoy today. This is a must see for any avid music fan!!
