    Liner Notes »

This entertaining musical survey, produced by the minds behind the great Beatles documentary THE COMPLEAT BEATLES, not only highlights how diverse rock's female artists are, but also just how diverse the genre of rock music is itself. WOMEN IN ROCK uses rare historical footage, musical videos, live concert performances, and personal interviews to showcase such legendary women of rock and roll as soul diva Aretha Franklin, Spanish-influenced Linda Ronstadt, 60's rock goddess Janis Joplin, pop star Madonna, and 1980's rockers The Bangles.
