Pete Seeger is a revered singer and performer, an ambassador of the world's folk music traditions, and a patriot, but whenever Jim Brown's very moving documentary verges too close to hagiography, interviews with the gently self-effacing subject himself steer the focus back onto the issues and the music.

Dublin's favorite songs and the "thinking man's rock band" U2 come live from a dramatic concert at Colorado's breathtaking outdoor Red Rocks Amphitheater. Bono is at his rock star best and guitarist The Edge is as technically adept as usual. Taped in the early day's of the band's lengthy career, U2 performs some of their now canonized classics including "Sunday Bloody Sunday," "Gloria," and "New Year's Day."

Fans of the gloomy Manchester-based band from the late 1970s will have less to feel down about with the release of this rockumentary. JOY DIVISION follows the unlikely rise of these working class lads up to Ian Curtis's suicide, which tore the band apart until it was reborn as New Order. Included here is rare footage of the group as well as their moody and starkly photographed videos, capturing the essence of what made Joy Division so special and so tragic.

On December 15, 1977, The Who performed before a select invited audience at the Gaumont State Theatre in Kilburn, North London, to record a concert for Jeff Stein's film, The Kids Are Alright, which turned out to be one of the last live performances by drummer Keith Moon.

John Mayer fans can expect the singer-songwriter to come in three action-ready poses in this concert release: an acoustic set, a rare John Mayer Trio set with Steve Jordan and Pino Palladino, and a full-blown set featuring the entire band. As always, this performance is part bluesy, part electric, and all Mayer.

Despite its title, CSNY Deja Vu is no baby-boomer nostalgia exercise. Chronicling Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young's 2006 tour, the film is a not just a concert movie but an engrossing exegesis on the myriad ways that entertainers, fans, soldiers, their families, right-wing radio hosts, and red- and blue-staters alike can feel about the Iraq War.
