A curiously titled new documentary (neither of the puns really relate to his career) about Mr. B, due for release as a home video at the end of October, which has been in the works for a while. With a running time of over two hours, this one has for the first time the full co-operation of Ritchie himself for once, and the documentary has been produced by Eagle Rock who have a good track record in this area (they backed the excellent Making Of Classic Album series.) It is also a good move given his aim of playing some rock shows next year to remind people what he was all about. There are twenty year olds around today who have never seen him live in anything but Blackmore’s Night.
