the high point
16 April 2007 | by (usa) – See all my reviews

The ten episode series of documentaries, "The History of Rock & Roll" strolls through pot smoke and past flower children into arguably the most significant period in rock music with the sixth chapter: "My Generation". As the cultural turmoil that began to brew several years earlier hit a full boil as civil rights, women's rights, Vietnam, and youth activism collided with socially conscious, drug-addled artists at their creative peeks. This is the time of Sgt. Pepper, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Woodstock, Monterey, and any number of other buzzwords for when music was more important, prolific, and otherwise at an all-time high. This installment shows what can now be seen as dashed hopes of a culture wanting more that to this day seems unattainable, and that alone makes this the most affecting episode in the series.
