Trivia

A segment of Buffalo Springfield performing a medley of "For What Its Worth" and "Mr Soul" is shown. Neil Young is shown playing to the bassist, who is sitting just barely inside the range of camera and with his back to the camera. Buffalo Springfield's bassist Bruce Palmer had recently been deported to Canada on drug charges and one of the roadies had to stand in for him at the last moment. Although they were lip syncing to the song, they didn't want to reveal that the roadie couldn't play the bass; thus, he was seated with his back to the camera. See more »

False advertising
11 July 2019 | by collegeforallSee all my reviews

Don't go expecting to see a cool documentary about a wonderful era of pop music and culture. Yes, there are interviews and archival footage but way too much time is devoted to Jakob Dylan and some concert he put together featuring thinly talented contemporary musicians singing those songs and offering banal observations about an era before they were born. It might have been interesting to hear how current performers have been influenced by the California sound, but all they do is imitate the sounds without any of the depth. Very disappointing and very incomplete.
