The beauty here is Henry Diltz knew these performers before they were stars, before they lost some of their shine. He was able to share stories & pictures that only an insider's would have had access. Sit back and enjoy the stories, some we already knew & some brand new to me, a music lover of 35 years. At times Henry sounds much like a proud grandparent, speaking about his grandkids, but I'd bought into his subjects long before this DVD arrived.
I have read and viewed a great deal about these bands but still found that this included some new materials. Some of the interviews seem quite recent.
As it turns out, I am very happy to report that she enjoyed this documentary as much as I did. For me, it reaffirmed my love for what I already knew, but for her, it was revelatory. The story begins with theories regarding how the circumstances surrounding the Kennedy assassination led the youth of the time to become skeptical of the older generation, and provided the impetus for Beatlemania as a means of rejecting the status quo. By leading us through Dylan's influence on folk music, it follows Stephen Stills and a few other key players as they settle in Laurel Canyon and form bands that emulated both the Beatles and Dylan. The Byrds and Buffalo Springfield were first, and a scene developed around clubs like the Whiskey a Go-Go and the Troubadour.Read more ›
