"With Docs That Rock, Music That Matters," Harvey Kubernik has done it again, this time in a broad overview of some of rock music's most important, and most overlooked, documentaries. Telling stories of battles to get films made, secret histories with prime movers, fascinating trivia about some of the most famous cinematic studies of beloved music, Kubernik's encyclopedic knowledge astounds and enlightens." —Roger Steffens, author of "So Much Things to Say: The Oral History of Bob Marley."
The Mike Stax review in the November/December issue of Ugly Things magazine, reports, "In 'Docs That Rock, Music That Matters,' Harvey Kubernik has tapped into his deep archive of interviews—some from as long ago as 1975, others as recent as last year—to present a substantial, authoritative exploration of music documentaries and rock-related film and television. The hefty 500-plus page book compiles essays and multi-voice interview pieces, illustrated with photos, including some rarely-seen pics by the great Henry Diltz.
"There's a huge amount of information packed into these pages, making this book an invaluable reference source for anyone interested in how documentaries and television have chronicled and celebrated music that matters."

And Lee Zimmerman, in the most recent Goldmine online review states, "Harvey Kubernik is renowned and respected as a leading light in the world of music journalism, so it ought to come as little surprise that his latest tome, 'Docs That Rock, Music That Matters,' should offer such a rich reservoir of scholarly essays, interviews and observations … spanning a broad swath of contemporary entertainment spawned from the intertwined world of music and film. It's an expansive work, owing primarily to Kubernik's experience, and expertise and the volumes of information shared by his subjects.
"Given his 48 years as a music writer, the 18 crucially acclaimed journals he's authored along the way, and a rich resume that includes his efforts as an editor, lecturer, producer, and major label talent rep, it's clear that he had plenty of material to mine."
