Made by the same team who put together the critically acclaimed films on Arthur Lee and Love as well as the more recent Mott The Hoople documentary. Mountain Picnic Blues is a documentary on The Charlatans' 1997 LP Tellin' Stories.
Featuring the hit singles "One To Another" and "North Country Boy", the LP was a number one hit and a creative high point for the band.
The record's creation however was overshadowed by the tragic death of keyboard player Rob Collins. The documentary features interviews with all band members and tells the story of the circumstances surrounding its recording and it's completion in the aftermath of Rob Collins' death.
The DVD also features the band playing the album live in its entirety, filmed this year at Glasgow Barrowlands, as part of the triumphant Tellin' Stories 15th anniversary concerts.
