    Under the Volcano (2021)

    I recently watched a great documentary about former Beatles producer George Martin's studio on the island of Monserrat in the West Indies. The Police, The Stones, Dire Straits, McCartney, and so many more made great music there. It's worth a watch. Under the Volcano (2 min. Trailer)
