A film for fans, both new and old

I saw the international premiere in Toronto during Canadian Music Week and can't wait to see it again.

By showing the overall history of Elliott's career, it's both easy for new fans to learn about his career, while older fans will hopefully discover something they didn't already know.

The film contains plenty of music I hadn't heard, which was just one of many reasons to see the film.

I honestly feel that Elliott deserves as much attention as possible, so detailed films like this one should make it easier for new fans to discover his music, either with his early bands or solo career.
