Music Recommendations

As you may be able to tell, I enjoy music.  In addition to listening to music -– which I think is the most important thing you can do with music -– I also enjoy reading about music history and watching TV shows, movies, and documentaries about music and music history.  Of the books I've read, the movies/shows I've seen, and the music I've listened to, here are my recommendations:
