Did You Know?


girl: So many of the kids I think use it as a kind of a status thing: who can lay the most guitarists; who can lay the most famous drummers. And this is a very unhealthy thing. But I think there were many of our mothers who would have dropped their drawers for Frank Sinatra if they could have had a chance.

Don't forget the commentary track!
11 May 2007 | by (Fair Oaks, Ca,United States) – See all my reviews

Most of the reviews of the DVD of "Mondo Mod" and it's counterpart of the same DVD package "Hippie Revolt", fails to mention the most interesting element of each film. And that is the commentary track on this DVD that is totally synced-up with movie. Johnny Legend and another person with him (sorry I forgot his name) Provides probably the most insightful and observant commentary about each film and what they experienced in that period. In fact, it is absolutely a delight to listen to! They were there! They can describe what the real story is behind the film footage. The movies alone with the original soundtrack only rates a 3. But with the commentary track I rate each film an 8! Please everybody if you buy or rent the DVD, don't ignore the commentaries. Highly recommended!
