Quotes

Anthony Burgess: I remember an old proverb. It says that, uh, youth, um, thinks itself wise just as drunk men think themselves sober. Youth is not wise! Youth knows... youth knows nothing about life! Youth knows nothing about anything except for a mass of cliches which for the most part through the media of pop songs are just foisted on them by middle-aged entrepreneurs and exploiters who should know better. When we start thinking that pop music is close to God, then we'll think pop music is aesthetically ...

Superb (for those interested in the philosophy/music/politics etc)
17 October 2007 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

This has recently come out on DVD and I've realised now that over the years I've seen lots of this famous programme on numerous others in various bits and pieces so its nice to see it in its entirety and fully restored.

As someone who was not of the sixties (far too young) but has always had a great deal of interest in the politics of the counter-culture I found this absolutely superb. A cliché, but you really don't get things like this anymore. Makes me realise how dumbed down TV has got over the years, really before I would ever be aware of it. If you're interested in the era, either a student or simply a lover of the music then this is more than a must see, its prime essential viewing. Things really have changed...and I'm not sure whether I can say for the better or not.

The interviews are fascinating, some at times quite profound and prophetic. Some are sad now, seeing Hendrix still "young" at that point it does make you bitter about what was done to him, again (and a sad irony it is) this does emphasise the richness of the programme, as one of the themes of the programme is how big business sucks the life out of "us" and creates a world full of untruths making a mockery of mankind. The fact that the sixties was rebelling against rigid structures is forgotten today, it's sad that most think it was just about sex and drugs.

Again, this is not for the casual viewer but for those with an interest, and for the fact that you're reading this means you probably are, so I can't stress enough how much that you must see it.

I guess I still wonder what really might have happened had we "won".

Oh, and good on Mr Palmer for saying that McCartney talks b%$£%$£s! (The interview part of the DVD is great too)
