Amazing documentary capturing the pop music scene of the mid-1960s. Where else can you see Joan Baez, The Ronettes, Bo Didley, Ray Charles, Ike & Tina Turner, The Lovin' Spoonful, Roger Miller, The Byrds, and on and on and on on the same bill. Didley followed by Baez is a trip in itself, but then a few acts later Baez comes back out backed by a full orchestra doing the Phil Spector-arranged "You've Lost That Lovin' Feelin'" (you'll see Phil himself on keyboards). Then Ronnie comes out and does "Be My Baby" and "Shout" with some really hot moves. Spector produced and directed, which explains the eclectic mix and incredible production values.

Too bad this isn't out on video.
